I think Paul Verhoeven's casting was done with the same sardonic cynicism as
his direction, on that particular film.

"Listen kid, love is the only chance for happiness you'll ever get
in this life. And if you're gonna let a little thing like rejection
stand in your way, baby, you might as well just stay right there on
the ground because people are gonna be walking all over you for the
rest of your life."
