Creative people don’t behave very well generally. If you’re looking for examples of good relationships in show business you’re gonna be depressed real fast. I don’t have time for anything else right now but work and my daughter. She’s my first priority.
I think I could go away tomorrow. I’ve already accomplished something. It’s such a selfish business that sometimes I get sick of myself.
But you know you can’t be a star at home.
Before I do anything I think well what hasn’t been seen. Sometimes that turns out to be something ghastly and not fit for society. And sometimes that inspiration becomes something that’s really worthwhile.
A lot of good love can happen in ten years.
That’s the trouble with being me. At this point nobody gives a damn what my problem is. I could literally have a tumor on the side of my head and they’d be like ‘Yeah big deal. I’d eat a tumor every morning for the kinda money you’re pulling down.’
The money can be a hindrance to someone like me because the danger is that you start thinking ‘Is that a $20 million take?’ That kind of thing and being self-critical.
Life opens up opportunities to you and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them.
My focus is to forget the pain of life. Forget the pain mock the pain reduce it. And laugh.
I tend to stay up late not because I’m partying but because it’s the only time of the day when I’m alone and don’t have to be performing.
My mother was a professional sick person she took a lot of pain pills. There are many people like that. It’s just how they are used to getting attention. I always remember she’s the daughter of alcoholics who’d leave her alone at Christmas time.
I refuse to feel guilty. I feel guilty about too much in my life but not about money. I went through periods when I had nothing so somebody in my family has to get stinkin’ wealthy.
Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they’re eating sandwiches.
My family kinda hit the skids. We were experiencing poverty at that point. We all got a job where the whole family had to work as security guards and janitors. And I just got angry.
I feel like I want to take care of everyone and I also feel this terrible guilt if I am unable to. And I have felt this way ever since all this success started.
What I have in common with the character in ‘Truman’ is this incredible need to please people. I feel like I want to take care of everyone and I also feel this terrible guilt if I am unable to. And I have felt this way ever since all this success started.
Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point you ain’t interesting.
I don’t think human beings learn anything without desperation. Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point you ain’t interesting.
