“I have big defenses against receiving a compliment and actually carrying it around with me. I mean, compliments are nice, but I don’t think it’s any accident that there’s so many people who have a hard time accepting them, even though they know that they’re nice. It’s like you don’t want to let in the little bomb that might go off later when it’s retracted. I’ve been really lucky in the last few years. I don’t expect it to always be like that. And I know what it’s like to not be like that…”
