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.]
