I will quote Norman Lear, who said that celebrity is something you can spend. And so I have taken my so-called celebrity and occasionally spent it down on causes or things that I'm passionate about. I'm not running for office. I'm not a scientist. But I'm a concerned citizen
Whenever I felt down, my mom would remind me that sense of humor gets you through just about anything
I love the film festival circuit. I think there's something about it, I don't know. Maybe I'm being Pollyanna-ish about this, but it's an opportunity to be very supportive of filmmakers, and there's just this goodwill which I love.
