I'm a better person in a relationship and I'm a happier person. I need to come home at the end of the day and have it not be about me and my freaking hair and makeup and character motivations anymore. And I think my work is more inspired when home is safe and sound and solid because what I do for a living is so bananas and so insecure.
Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough.
