As long as you watch the nationality, the skin color of an artist, or if he/she fits with your beliefs and opinions BEFORE you just receive the pleasure he/she offers you, you’re totally wrong.
It’s a matter of seconds, sometimes less, and it can totally spoil your reception. Unfortunately, many of you behave like this.

Directing and writing are so exhilarating to me because you get to make something that is your vision. I feel like having the power to make anything feel and look the way I want it. You don’t get to do that as an actor where you are part of someone’s story. You contribute hugely and may change it for the better, but you don’t have an overview of the piece as a whole - which, eventually, is frustrating.
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is, “It’s okay.” It’s okay for me to be kind to myself. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s okay to get mad. It’s okay to be flawed. It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to move on.
I don’t think anyone chooses to have their personal life on display for the world to see and judge, but at the same time, I won’t stop living my life and going with my heart. Everyone deals with judgment and other people voicing their opinions without ever knowing the full and true story. People won’t stop spreading things they’ve heard through the grapevine, or creating stories based on a random picture. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in. There will always be people who react even when they don’t know what’s going on.
