My mind still runs too fast. If we get the wrong fabric or something is stitched the wrong way, I get so angry and so flummoxed that I start spelling my words, just to slow myself down.
At the level at which I work with people, their great talent is paired with great insecurity. Self-doubt is literally the twin of self-confidence. And I have to be there for both.
The trick about the theater is at the end of the day you cannot take any of it personally.
I’m a bachelor in the old sense of the word, meaning I flirt, I have very many close relationships, but then I come home and like to read my book.
