August 26, 1980
I have worked hard to get where I am.
My nana was an actress, my mom was an actress, and my sister, too. So because I was surrounded by it, it really came naturally.
Any actor wants to do interesting roles, different roles. It's not all that much fun to do the same thing over and over again.
My father has been an actor since 1964. Things were tight a lot of the times, financially. It wasn't like a big romantic adventure.
I don't usually read self-help books, but I read a great book by a guy called Wayne Dyer: 'The Power of Intention,' which I loved.
In high school, I once sang 'Let's Get It On' and 'Brown Sugar' with a band that included my English teacher and my math teacher.
You have to be able to carry a conversation. I think after the initial attraction kind of dies down. The lust dies down. There has to be the thing that engages you.
Usually, I like stuff kind of fitted, but I'm getting more and more into this comfort, this melding of comfort and style rather than looking like you've tried to shove yourself into some sort of sausage casing.
I think it's a very healthy thing to learn from what's happened in the past. But only if you look at what happened and think, 'How could I have dealt with that differently?' Then let it go.
If I had let myself off the hook in college, I could have enjoyed myself a lot more. Knowing that I can't have those years back, I have learned to get the most out of living in the now.
