The compassion is keen. The friendliness sincere. As he gets older, he says, his fellow-feeling only grows. “Over the years you get to see what a struggle life is for most people, how tough it is, how easy it is to be judgmental and criticise and stand outside of situations and impart your wisdom and judgment. But over the decades I’ve got more tolerant of people’s flaws and mistakes. Everybody makes a lot of them. When you’re younger you feel: ‘Hey, this person is evil’ or 'This person is a jerk’ or stupid or 'What’s wrong with them?’ Then you go through life and you think: 'Well, it’s not so easy.’ There’s a lot of mystery and suffering and complication. Everybody’s out there trying to do the best they can. And it’s not such an easy business.”
—  Woody Allen, age 80, in an interview with Catherine Shoard for The Guardian
