My life is just – logistics – fitting everything in.
It’s much easier for me to cry and do all those things on the stage than in real life.
I never wanted to be an actress. I wanted to go into the medical professional. Acting was not important enough. That was a hobby – nothing to do with what you did in life.
Life is fun. And it’s beautiful. But it’s cold. Cutthroat. Nasty.
I’m not just a runner. I’m not just a fast guy. I’m a fighter. I’m a survivor in life.
But I don’t want to sit back and be an audience to my own life.
I’m kind of a life coach for thousands of people.
Failure and triumphs are parts of life.
Then, girls have to deal with a degree of unfair scrutiny about their life outside sports. If we have good hair or look good, we are called glamorous and it is presumed that we are not focused on sports. Nowadays, even the sportsmen are glamorous, good-looking, but they never face such scrutiny.
In China or in the U.S., the government program takes over promising sporting talent at a very early age and then financially secures their life. They get educated.
All the fans who see me ride through the city are laughing. They can’t believe the manager of Leipzig is skateboarding! They like it. They never say, ‘He’s crazy.’ They recognise that you are living a normal life.
I can’t say my life has been dominated by tragedy. I refuse to accept that. I’ve had less than some, more than others.
I’ve had tragedy in my life, but I think that gives me a depth that I can bring to my work. I’d like to see more older women on TV because they can bring that life experience and emotion to a performance.
I was having the worst year of my life before the offer from ‘EastEnders’ came through. I was 58, my kids were grown up, and I had no money and few offers.
My grandmother left an incredible legacy and mark on my life and my family.
When I realized I was having a baby boy, I wanted him to know that I’m there in his life: ‘Dad loves him. Dad’s always going to support him and be there for him.’ I don’t want him to have to worry about anything.
Once I was away from track and field, I was able to realize that life is something you really have to work on.
When I first started modeling it taught me to face rejection. In the industry and life in general there are going to be a lot of people who don’t like you or understand you, you have to be ok with the fact that what other people think really doesn’t matter.
I feel like you’ll be most successful in life if you just try to block the noise, sometimes the hate can be louder than the love.
There was an attempt on my life.
I started out not doing jokes about my disability. I just talked about my life. But I’ve found that if I don’t broach the subject, people are kind of like, ‘C’mon, talk about it.’ They want to hear about it.
I pull my material from daily life.
I’m pretty open as far as my personal life is concerned.
I would like to find a way to do everything I want to do in life.
