Looks like we don't have Spike Jonze salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1[on Amy Adams] The thing I realized with Amy is, she can make any dialogue you write sound unwritten. She just has a way of internalizing it. She's such a thinker, and you can see her thinking her way through all of that until it's all coming from within her.
2There was definitely a point in my thirties when I thought, 'Oh, wow, I'm not the youngest person on the set anymore. But I like it. Working with younger artists is totally exciting...[And Arcade Fire:] Most of them are ten years younger than me and they just feel like peers. Their process is very democratic. Anyone in the group can come up with an idea and play over someone else.
3[on Joaquin Phoenix's first reading for/ acting in Her (2013)] I loved him...[He was] all instinct [and] when something felt weird, when Joaquin was uncomfortable with something, I knew it meant there was some place I had cheated or hadn't thought through or hadn't gone deep enough. His flinch is always worth listening to...I'm always amazed when any actor can decipher my direction. I think, 'God, I can't believe Joaquin just understood what I meant when I barely said anything'.
4[on the origins of Her (2013) from his long-ago encounter with an artificial-intelligence computer program] For the first 30 seconds, I had that buzz, like, It's responding to me! Then it quickly fell apart and you realize, Here are the tricks, here's how this works. But what if I could sustain that forever? What would that be like? I wanted to take that idea as far as I could possibly imagine and feel.
5As a feature film director you got to be a guarding dog of the whole production. You got to be able to hold 100 script pages in the head at the same time. If you miss a detail it's wasted. I don't know how the music video generation can affect the movie business, but I'm curious what feature films the English Chris Cunningham and the Swedish guy Jonas Åkerlund are going to make.

#Trademark
1Green and blue tinged scenes lit by fluorescents
2Often shoots exterior scenes around sunset
3Many of his music videos are short films set to music
4Often makes his actors appear unattractive, e.g. Cameron Diaz's frizzy hair and frumpy wardrobe in Being John Malkovich (1999), outfitting Nicolas Cage in a fatsuit and receding hairline in Adaptation. (2002).
5Frequently has a male character unexpectedly break into dance: John Malkovich in Being John Malkovich (1999), Christopher Walken in "Weapon of Choice", Theodore in Her (2013)
6Frequently uses music from Karen O and the Arcade Fire
7Subtle handheld camera operation
8Seamless integration of special effects into live-action photography (Being John Malkovich (1999), Adaptation. (2002), Where the Wild Things Are (2009)).
9[Off-beat] His films/music videos are off-beat in their visual storytelling, particularly their mix of live-action, animation, and puppetry.

Is Spike Jonze's Net Worth Deserved?
