Do you read your reviews?
I used to. I don't anymore. You don't want to wake up in the middle of the night thinking about somebody saying you've lost the plot.

I have a lot of friends who don't read their reviews.
The smart ones. There was an article called "He's a Loser and We Want to Kill Him." It was three pages long. It was the worst thing. And when you're 23, you believe it. "Oh, I'm horrible, what am I doing!" Hari-kari!

But you're a critic's darling. Critically, you basically have won.
I have? Yay! You're making me feel good. I need a tiara.
