“[You do quite a lot of charity work. How important is giving back to you? How did you choose the various foundations you support?] It’s really, really important to give back, whether you’re in the entertainment industry or not. It’s something that everyone should do and should want to do.

But I think it’s everyone’s responsibility to give back.” x
