Baz Luhrmann
I understand that anything actors are doing, good or bad, is motivated by fear.
Baz Luhrmann
I often think to myself, at the end of an interesting life it's maybe not such a bad thing to spend your last days with your friends sitting by the blue, blue ocean reliving the story of your life while sitting in the dangerous sun.
