I was surprised to hear Josh say he struggles with being comfortable in his skin during one of the Ape interviews as it applies to a question about success. Any thoughts?
Yes, I did see that response and it was to the question what makes someone a success. On one hand I am surprised because Josh seems pretty self-possessed. He’s eloquent and not afraid to speak his mind. But he’s also 24 years old, raised in a bubble of Hollywood and standing on his own two feet for the first time in his life. I’m sure it’s a scary time for him too.
The other thing Josh said was that living a genuine life is a sign of success. Let’s hope that happens for Josh soon because I really do want all types of great things for him. He’s a good actor and he directed his first film at 24 - he has great potential, but he needs to put the work in to become a success. He has to be in LA and work connections and be seen and stay relevant. And yes be honest with who he is and the life he leads. Success doesn’t happen without commitment. And not being forthright wears on you. It’s time for him to just be true.
