I find forgiveness to be really healthy.
I grew up in a home environment where I wasn’t getting esteem for anything I did.
I’m not the type of guy who enjoys one-night stands. It leaves me feeling very empty and cynical. It’s not even fun sexually. I need to feel something for the woman and entertain the vain hope that it may lead to a relationship.
I’ve finally learnt how to say ‘No comment’. To appear in the tabloids is a real learning curve and a steep one at that. You had better learn quick or you get burnt.
Marriage hasn’t been my thing. But gay people knock yourselves out!
But when I felt like I had something to prove? Then I got up early every morning and worked all day long. I didn’t know if I had any more talent than anyone else directing but I knew I could work hard at it and so I did.
There’s something really great and romantic about being poor and sleeping on couches.
All I do really is go to work and try to be professional be on time and be prepared.
My mother taught public school went to Harvard and then got her master’s there and taught fifth and sixth grade in a public school. My dad had a more working-class lifestyle. He didn’t go to college. He was an auto mechanic and a bartender and a janitor at Harvard.
Sure I suffered a lot. But it’s not like the end of the world and it’s not who I am. I lead quite a pleasant life and I’m able to divorce a perceived reality from my actual experience of life.
