” You know what? I did a lot of things that were deliberate, and they all backfired. I was trying desperately to become Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler, and it did not work for me. I took a lot of leaps that I shouldn’t have, traditionally speaking. I paid the price for that. I was not as hire-able for a while. But then I just gave all that up. “
