“I often dream of quitting acting. Walking away and becoming a laundress or a sous chef or maybe writing other people’s love letters for a living. … Clearly, I don’t like to be in charge. And thinking of quitting is just keeping going in disguise. When you have options, anything is bearable. It’s when a situation is inescapable that it becomes hell. It seems to me that as soon as you get good at something, it is a sure sign that it is about to walk out of your life because it ceases to hold your mind and creative energy hostage.”
Michelle Williams on the trials of being a famous, award-winning actress who showed up on the late, amazing Heath Ledger‘s radar
because of those aforementioned facts because she’d make a BANGING sous chef.
No, but in all seriousness, I know exactly what you’re saying, Michelle. Like, what if I were to give up working from home, and quitting blogging or whatever? Well, first, I’d have to go and buy some big girl clothes and toss out some of the yoga pants and camisoles. I’d have to brush my hair at least once a day, and go out and interact with real people once in awhile, too. I’d have to give up sanctity of peeking on the neighbors all hours of the night just to double-check that they’re not vampires, and you know what? Could I just walk away from this? Damn, guys. No, I just couldn’t. So I give you props, Michelle Williams, if you do.
