Happy Birthday, Antje Traue! | January 18, 1981

They sent me a Kill Bill monologue which I taped in my living room. It was a very, very difficult year for me at the time. I had sent in countless auditions. My agent called and told me to put myself on tape. I laughed and said, Really? How many girls are going to be auditioning for Superman? He said, Come on, the sad truth is that you have nothing to do. Now I have a new understanding of never giving up. We use that line all the time, never give up. All of a sudden it had meaning.
