I like what Renee Zellweger said of her role, “The fun part is making a jerk out of yourself… getting to be creative with it and ridiculous. And there’s no way I was going to miss out on that. No way! I laughed myself silly watching what an idiot I was. It’s so funny because Lucy is so determined to be perfect.”
Such self-deprecation is a key to life, others can better identify with you and it helps breaks down false facade. Ahh, the joy of being honest about yourself to yourself and others. Learn to laugh at yourself. Great medicine!
