Ratner, 33, has been living in a guest house on legendary producer Evans' estate for the past six months and he hopes to extend his stay to a year because he loves living in the lap of luxury.
The director says, "My house was under construction and I just moved in. Bob has nine servants, so his house is better than any hotel.
"He gives me advice on my deals, what movie I should do, or helps me write letters. He's my mentor; just like any father figure... Everybody comes over and pays homage to him."11/12/2003 02:30
