When I look back on my life I’ve been very lucky that I lived out all these childhood dreams. I wanted to be a movie actor, and I became one. I wanted to be a movie director, and a comedian, and I became one. I wanted to play jazz in New Orleans, and I played in street parades and joints in New Orleans and street parades and opera houses and concerts all over the world. There was nothing, in my life, that I aspired toward that hasn’t come through for me.
But, despite all these…lucky breaks - why do I still feel like I got screwed somehow? [chuckles]
