Robert Rodriguez is more creative when he is working with a low budget.

The director - best known for his work on the 'Spy Kids' franchise - admitted having less money available to make a film allows him to use his "gut instinct", rather than getting carried away with sets and equipment.

He explained: "Low budgets force you to be more creative. Sometimes, with too much money, time and equipment, you can over-think. My way, you can use your gut instinct."

Although he prefers having a low budget, Robert has admitted he lied about how much thriller 'Machete' - which stars Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Alba - cost to make as he wanted to ensure it was given the promotional push it deserved.

He said: "We told the studio it cost $20 million to $25 million. But it was much less. Still, you don't want to tell them that, because they won't sell it as hard. And that's how I conduct my business!"
