“I make it harder than it should be. And I overthink everything. That’s something I work on- to make it less difficult. Because the goal has always been just to tell the truth, to make the acting not stand out, to smooth the rivets off of the plane. And it’s still what keeps me going, because i’ll never quite get there, you know? I kind of realized early on that the real joy was in the work, that the other stuff was bullshit.”
- John Goodman, interviewed in the October Esquire.
And I just would like to emphasize “just tell the truth”. So it goes in acting, so it goes in writing, so it goes in relationships and family and friends and work. So it goes with your life.
