John Hughes

It's incredible looking back at how an artist influences a person with their work. After John Hughes's passing this week, I looked back at his films and discovered how much they influenced me as an actor, director and writer.

Beyond that, his films gave me hope. They didn't make me less poor, more popular, better understood by my family or less socially awkward. They did make me feel like I wasn't the only one with problems. They gave me hope that things would work out and that somebody would understand me. I was a kid when his first films came out. I know I'm not the only one who felt a little more normal growing up on a steady diet of his works.
