Kanye West - Steve McQueen: Kanye West is a 'lovely man'

Kanye West and Steve McQueen are developing a close friendship.

The '12 Years a Slave' director bonded with the 'New Slaves' rapper when he recently interviewed him for the January issue of Interview magazine and Steve hasn't ruled out working with him in the future.

Speaking at the 66th Annual Directors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night (25.01.14), the moviemaker told EOnline.com: ''We talk all the time. He's a very lovely man. A lovely man.''

He said he respects Kanye, 36, ''because he's an experimenter, he's tireless in trying to create sound and music. That he can be progressive within the now. He's very current.''

He added: ''I'm just happy that he's around.''

Asked if the duo have plans to work together in the future, Steve said: ''I don't know. I mean, we're working on a friendship.''

Meanwhile, 'Gravity' director Alfonso Cuaron won the Directors Guild of America's top award for Feature Film at the annual ceremony.
