Steven Spielberg's Says: My Daughter Inspired Me To Make War Horse
"All my friends are STARS - Some of them just happen to be celebrities...."
This Christmas, moviegoers have Steven Spielberg's 15-year-old daughter to thank for inspiring dear old dad to work his magic and create an adaptation the Tony-winning play War Horse into a movie.
"My daughter [Destry] is a great companion to have tonight because I made this movie with her in mind," Spielberg, 64, told PEOPLE at the world premiere for the film in New York Sunday. "Ever since I showed her Black Stallion years ago, she said, 'You've got to make a movie with a horse in it,' so I did."
At the War Horse screening December 6th Spielberg was looking for a two thumbs up from his most important critic.
"She's never seen War Horse so tonight’s a big test for the movie," he said of Destry. "She's going to be the judge. I have a responsibility to get this right for her."
