I really wanted to make it as a ballet dancer to make my mom proud. But it didn’t happen.
I think the worst thing that can happen to a good actor is fame.
You know the minute you stop thinking about it, it’ll happen.
People recognize something’s going to happen, and they’d better get ready.
When I was younger, I definitely had more of a dream, as they say on ‘American Idol,’ that I would have my own show. I always thought that that was something that would happen, that eventually I would just get my own show because anyone who wants their own show should get their own show.
I was among the people in the Superdome. I knew what was going on every minute. I did not have air conditioning nor shower facilities. I made decisions based upon facts and not what I thought was going to happen. So history will judge me based upon those actions.
You break your neck, you don’t know what’s going to happen. I mean, it’s foreign. You’re in this body that you thought you were – that you were accustomed to, and now you’re not. You have to figure out everything. I think the biggest thing for me was getting a license, because it gives you...
You see something happen to a population whereby everyone adopts something that’s just preposterous in a way that makes it normal instantly.

I think there are things that you look for when you’re younger, and you think they are going to make you happier or make you feel complete. That’s not going to happen, and it’s really about living the moments. Eventually, you reach a point when you’re at ease with your life and don’t have any...

Crap has always happened, crap is happening, and crap will continue to happen.
If you live long enough, lots of nice things happen.
It just seems like the most successful, iconic love stories are not so easy or escapist. I think the ones that stay with us and resonate are full of conflict, discord and misunderstandings ’cause that’s what makes drama happen or tension even if it’s a comedy.
If we were the problem, it would be very convenient – kick Greece out, everything’s fine. What would happen to Spain, what about Portugal, what about Italy, what about the whole of the euro zone? We need more cooperation and less simplification and prejudice.
Sometimes, we wait on God for special things to happen extraordinarily in our lives before we understand that “God is working”. Meanwhile, there are “super-special” things that fill our life barrels in minute drops, but they go unappreciated!
If you’re not doing what you want to do. However, you still think about it every day. This means you have not given up. Only you know what action will make it happen and thought is an action. Keep focusing on what you want to do and figure out how to turn your thoughts into...
