"The second that you see a book like Hollywood Babylon when you’re a little kid — and I got a copy of that book when I was like 11 years old from a used bookstore — all of that stuff, and having that weird Hollywood connection of my uncle, I was always fascinated by that. You read celebrity bios and you see all these child actors and the crap that they went through, all the drugs and sex. I was attracted to that, and it’s part of the whole thing: What will you do for your dreams? It’s what we sacrifice for this mystical thing, fame and fortune, that you think is going to change your life somehow and change who you are."
