It’s true, it is only a job. It can lead you astray, it can make you think that you’re the king of the fucking world, the acting business. You get offered a lot of things very quickly, you can believe the hype, you can get driven around places, you get free invites, people love you when really they don’t think anything about you, they think you’re wonderful when really they couldn’t give a fuck about you. There’s an awful lot of hype out there and it can just tear you apart, but it’s only you that will do that, if you allow it.
