There are two types of fame in my mind, there is the very honest and ancient engagement of an artist and the audiences. I couldn’t call myself an actor if there is no audience to come and watch me, and I admire and respect the very sacred relationship between any artist and their audiences.[…] And there’s another type of fame which is sort of empty and dangerous, which is just fame. It’s not grounded in anything.
There is a wonderful peom about fame, by an English poet, Charlotte Mew, in the 20s… and I found that very comforting. [x
