Sometimes success will get in the way of maturity – at least temporarily.
I feel like I want to take care of everyone and I also feel this terrible guilt if I am unable to. And I have felt this way ever since all this success started.
I had come to the point when I realized it was unlikely that my film career was going to move beyond a certain level of role. And I was – because I had graphic instances of it – handicapped by the success of Star Trek. A director would say, ‘I don’t want Jean-Luc Picard in my movie’ – and this was compounded by X-Men as well.
The first myth of management is that it exists. The second myth of management is that success equals skill.
