I had that conversation once with Lorne Michaels. He says the thing you’re known for will be in quotes in the middle of your name. He’s Lorne “SNL“ Michaels, and I’m Andy "Dick in a Box” Samberg. If that’s how it goes down, that will be A-okay.
“My theory is that people in this day and age want to dismiss things. So they want to be able to dismiss you. They say, ‘You don’t belong, you don’t deserve this because here’s why, and let me find an intellectual argument for why you wearing pink or cuff sleeves or a bow makes you not worthy of your accomplishments. Everything you’ve done doesn’t matter because you wore the wrong thing or you speak in a way that’s feminine or you identify yourself as feminine.’ And I just think that’s bullshit.”
