Transcript: Costner Inspired by Exxon Valdez to Create Oil-Cleaning Machine

COSTNER: Well, there's something about just having your own --I know I'm not. I know I'm not. I, but, you know, I'm … I'm just … you didn't get the poetry in my story.

COSTNER: Well … the great ending is not for me. It's for people. The great ending is not … for me. I don't have to be endorsed. I know what I did and I know the people around me know what I did. So … the great ending, you know, it'd be selfish to make it a personal ending.
