I love the pictures of Old Hollywood, seeing the directors dressed in suits and ties. Even the grips would be wearing ties.

At the end of the day the question comes, what are you doing for the world? You have to try to do something that's going to add something positive.
We didn't used to be so precious about women in comedy back in the old days.
