“It’s one thing to become a better actor, it’s another thing to want to be somebody, or to want to be a star, or to get recognition. If you want to be an actor and to learn about acting, that has nothing to do with Hollywood. That has nothing to do with the business. That has to do with you, as a human being, pursuing something that you f**king care about. And if you get good enough, all that other stuff will take care of itself.”
(William H. Macy, in an interview with Vanity Fair)
