A lot of people come to L.A. looking for something. What I came here for, I realize now, is to be okay with myself.
HD doesn't mean anything to me. It's a technical thing. It's like demographics. A lot of people know about it.
I don't see my show as a stepping stone to something else like some people, who get a job then have a foot out the door looking for their next job.
I think sometimes that people think brave means not being afraid, which of course it doesn't mean that at all. It means that you're afraid, but you move past that and do it anyway, do what you think is right.
I used to believe, like many people who come from poor backgrounds, that it gave me an edge, but I think that's just something we have to tell ourselves to get by sometimes. I don't believe that anymore. Children of privilege can be just as talented and clever as anybody else.
It's very interesting to know what people are doing while you're working on late-night television.

I did have a love for literature that overpowered my hatred of the people who taught it, and I think because I had no respect for the teachers, their attitude didn't poison the writing that I was discovering for myself.
