Tom Ford Financed 'A Single Man' Himself

Tom Ford Financed 'A Single Man' Himself

>> Tom Ford apparently smells like vanilla and moves a certain way to highlight his best side —“I think of myself as a product," he told the New York Times.  But that's not all he wants to be seen as:

“I had one friend whom I’ve known for 15 years who said, ‘I’ve always thought of you as a beautiful black lacquered box with a platinum handle from the 1920s, but I never knew there was anything inside the box.' I was, like, ‘You’ve been my friend, and you did not know there was anything more than the surface?’”

For instance, Ford financed his first film, all $7 million of it, himself.  The subject matter of A Single Man made it hard for studio backing, and two investors he had a verbal agreement last year fled after the economic crash.  His agents warned against funding the project himself, but Ford decided to do it anyway: he got complete creative control, something he highly values, out of the deal.
