The pursuit of happiness is in our Constitution. We're all entitled to have the best we can.
When I went to school, I was in the same mode. I did the things I enjoyed, what I loved.
Everybody has their thing. I think you can always do what you like.
Animals are thinking, feeling creatures. They're sensitive.
I don't eat or wear animals, but I never tell people not to - that's just my view.

You only know what you know.
M*A*S*H offered real characters and everybody identified with them because they had such soul. The humor was intelligent and it always assumed that you had an intellect.
So much of life is luck. One day you make a right turn and get hit by a car. Turn left and you meet the love of your life. I think I made the correct turn.
I have certain strong interests that fill my life as well.
I just can't wait to get out there on stage. There's no anxiety at all. I love being able to take this journey with the audience, because we all have a ball with it - even if we're crying.
I love being creative in all forms.
