    I think the awesome point about THR is, they choose seriously speaking talented experienced even kinda touchable to give people inspirations those artists to talk, even without any awards presented just during the season, they don't invite pop stars, that's cool.

    I love the sentiment, that though you're an actor-you still don't have to do any & everything. For real world reasons. I mean, damn, you are still pretending, albeit REALLY well, but pretending nonetheless and that has real world implications, for yourself & those around you. If that ain't your bag, then you can move on. Still doesn't mean you're "not an AHKTOR".

    I didn't watch the video, but read the transcript excerpt on and that's why I like George Clooney. He is really aware of what he does in Hollywood and that whole machine. He's humble and recognizes that he is incredibly lucky. It's refreshing to see a big star in Hollywood like that and I wish there were more people in the industry that were that humble.

    Again, Clooney. Speaks straight truth right around the 18:30 mark. You do what you do, and people will talk all their shit, but your talent & your passion is not what changes. It's the environment that changes-and people wonder where you been. But then you jump back on the scene years later, doing the same thing when it comes back into fashion. But when you're young, you think "it's me, I suck."

    HILARIOUS! Nolte didn't want to do 48 Hrs. because the studio was saying "the black kid wasn't funny". I tell ya boy, the talk that goes on behind closed doors...

    Really love Clooney. Not just as an actor, but more as a person & his outlook on stuff.
