“My father is an actor, so he brought me into his agency when I was young. It wasn’t something I wanted to do until high school, when I started taking theater and really liked it.

“In Los Angeles, everyone is a star.” By Denzel Washington.

“Los Angeles is such a town of show business, and I’m a terrible celebrity. I find it difficult – it’s the beast that must be fed. There’s this big wheel of pictures and articles that goes around, and you get pinned on it.” By Julia Roberts.
“I followed a girl I met in Japan to Los Angeles and ended up working in a motorcycle store. I quit the job one night, went to a party in the Hollywood Hills and ended up yelling at a bunch of people. Someone saw me yelling and asked me to be in a play. The first night, there was an agent in the audience who took me on and sent me out for jobs.” By Norman Reedus.
“In New York, the street adventures are incredible. There are a thousand stories in a single block. You see the stories in the people’s faces. You hear the songs immediately. Here in Los Angeles, there are less characters because they’re all inside automobiles.” By Joni Mitchell.
“In Los Angeles, I feel connected to a hubbub of strangeness. And I enjoy that; I like strangeness.” By Robbie Williams.
