 I don't support it. I think the film has its integrity as it stands. I'm not someone who's casual about that kind of language. I take my children to football games. I hate hearing that kind of language in their ears, but I won't deny them the experience of a live game. But in the context of the film, it couldn't be more edifying appropriate. It's not vicious or insulting. It's not in the context that might offend.

We are crazy about each other. We're very committed on a daily basis to how we deal with our family lives. But the real secret is time - we have to make sure that we spend enough time together.
