Famous Quotes

What is acceptable in our culture, I think, is really detrimental. I think we ought to have a little more ownership over the kind of material and the content that we put in front of people, especially young people.

The way people appear in the gossip papers, as they’re depicted as celebrities, it’s not often much like who they are. The more people I meet, the more that’s true. Sometimes, they’re worse.

We obsess about celebrities. We create them, build myths around them, and then hunt them and destroy them. I don’t know where it’s taking us or what it means, but I know we do it. I have seen a lot of it myself.
