No Unscripted Actors

I have made a rule for myself: I do not need to watch interviews with actors.  This goes double for movie stars.

Directors and writers I can be interested in.  But actors only reliably have something important to say when they are talking about acting.

A corollary: I am suspicious of plays about actors.  Same goes for novels about writers.

[All of this is brought on by watching "Birdman"- an artful film about foolish, self-destructive people with concerns not engaging to non-actors.]

Did not see the movie, but you are spot on in your analysis of interviews with actors.
