This industry is quite difficult in terms of the demands it puts on people to be a certain way. I don’t envy kids who were put into the spotlight very young. You don’t know yourself yet. You’re growing up in a world that’s a little warped. It’s important to put things in perspective and realize we’re just playing make believe. We’re not saving lives, and we’re not the most important people on the planet. I’m glad I did this job for 20 years before anything blew up.
Feeling confident in your own skin is so important. Embrace your strengths and be proud of who you are.
