And what happened was, I think I have to say it's quite recently, after doing a star is born and working with Bradley Cooper and my experience, even with, you know, winning an Oscar It's like I just went to myself. You have a much greater mission on this earth than to freak the hell out of people. You know. Your mission is to bring people joy. Your mission is to bring people kindness. Your mission is to give people.
