Every time you do something that is well-received, it will cheer you up and remind you that not only was there a reason you started doing this in the first place, but that your impostor syndrome is only partially real and you are not a complete fraud ( laughs). And I think we all have those moments.”

And she’s been doing this for so long and she cares about me and I care about her and her family. And producer Frank Marshall and I are still partners.”
