“Everyone knows who you are and expects you to have money but you haven’t. I went through about ten years of trying to pretend I was really eccentric, and that’s why I had shitty car that broke down all the time, and that’s why I didn’t have any proper furniture. All my furniture was broken because I couldn’t afford any more, but I tried to pretend to people that I really liked it that way. You go through all through this weird stuff because you desperately don’t want people to know that you’ve run out of any money, because it’s like the kiss of death, especially in this business. So you end up just pretending all the time and that was weird.”
