I’m going to say this once, and listen closely: “rich” and “poor” are meaningless. The word you must understand is “privilege”. You know that you had a privileged upbringing, but you don’t yet understand that privilege is something that extends deeper and further than money. I’m talking about entitlement. You are an entitled, privileged fucking bastard.
“I also know that Pete, the next day, didn’t actually remember the massive bust-up. Carl does, but that’s the thing - Pete never remembers and Carl always does. But when they get together, Carl will forget the fact that he remembers, Pete doesn’t remember, Pete smiles at him, and it’s all good.”—Gary Powell (drummer of the Libertines)
“I’m very proud of Harry Potter, but I now have to take a few risks to prove to people that I’m serious about this. I don’t regard The Woman in Black particularly as a risk, but certainly Equus was, and How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying could be seen as a bit of a risk because it’s something that I’ve never done before. I think that’s how you prove to people that you are prepared to take slightly more extreme steps than most actors would normally have to. I get bored very quickly when I’m not doing anything, and I’m very happy at work, so I don’t know why I’d stop! I do tend to play quite sad characters. I don’t know why – I’m quite happy!”—Daniel Radcliffe
My new column at Crushable! This week I talk about boys and relationships and drop in mentions of John Green’s PAPER TOWNS, Walt Whitman (naturellement, considering the former), and The Green Lantern. Because I am pretentious that way.
