Quotes

“It’s like the worst name on the planet. I hate it. And people say it all the time: ‘You’re a celebrity.’ No, I’m an actor. I’m a producer. I’m a director. I’m a toad. I’m roadkill. I’m anything but a celebrity.”

“You can’t live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didn’t do for you. You’re dealt the cards that you’re dealt. I realised it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself.”

“I was very conscious, when ET came out. Your memory and ability to do everything that you need to do is sharpened, because you’re not a child just playing in the dirt. You’re expected to remember your lines, and get up at a certain time every day and go to work. I always loved it.”
