Wow. Thank you. Thank you very much. This is an amazing moment. I appreciate it. I have 42 seconds to speak, so I better hurry. I’m not up here alone. I’m up here with all of my friends and family who support me and help me make what we make. Everybody… Many of them in the room. But they’re all up here in this room, up on the stage with me right now. And I appreciate everyone. There’s Hoyte, he’s over there laughing next to Robert De Niro. There’s Natalie crying, Bryan smiling. Megan Ellison, who’s very shy. She’s hiding in the back. It’s all of my friends. Everyone that I love. We made a movie about relationships and intimacy and that’s what we share together, and so this is for all of us up here. And thank you guys for this.
