When asked his opinion on The Passion controversy, famed director Steven Spielberg wouldn't answer:
"I certainly am not going to comment based on circumstantial evidence from what I've been hearing and feeling in the last seven or eight days," Spielberg said at a news conference to promote the DVD release of his Oscar-winning Holocaust epic "Schindler's List."
"I think it's much too important, and I'm really too smart to answer a question like that.
"When I do see the film, the first person who will hear from me will be Mel Gibson and no one else," he added.
Wow. Not criticizing the movie before you've seen it? What a novel concept.
