Brian Grazer is one of the most successful men in Hollywood's history. He's the producer behind movie classics like Splash
, Apollo 13
and A Beautiful Mind
as well as the recent television smash hit Empire
. Combined, his work has been nominated for 43 Oscars® and 149 Emmys®. Yet, no matter what project he's working on or where his work takes him, Brian follows the same morning ritual he's had for the last 20 years.
Each morning, Brian wakes up at 6 and drinks two glasses of water. Next, he drinks his coffee while eating apples and bananas. Then, Brian browses the Internet. "I read stories," he says. "All the things that are happening on the planet from, you know, important news sources. ... That gets me excited. It gets me wound up and gets me asking questions of myself."
Watch as Brian explains what questions he begins to ask. Plus, hear what he has to say about the lesson that's taken him longest to learn.
