“It’s been such a struggle to learn all that I have.  I wouldn’t want to give any of that knowledge up.  That’s why I’ve always loved acting; as a kid, I didn’t necessarily like my real life, so I could escape into these other characters and experience a life completely different from my own.”

“The best kind of parent you can be is to lead by example.”

“I think happiness is a choice.  I believe luck is your attitude.  It sounds like a really annoying bumper sticker.  But there is such a great truth in that.  You choose how you want to feel about what happens to you.  I could have been a miserable failure.  I haven’t had anybody looking over me, and I’ve found my own way through optimistic exploration and fire-burning mistakes.  I am a very happy person with an extraordinary life, so I must be doing a lot of things right.  I really believe when you peel away the layers, the world’s a beautiful place filled with beautiful people.”
