I've always loved animals and I always thought that they were, if not better, then the absolute equal of any two legged creature that God ever created.
I was really involved with other people's opinions of me, and it got heightened during my film career. I don't have any opinion, good or bad about it, it just was. It's not the way I feel now, and I think yoga has a lot to do with that.
I'm very touched on a deep level by cruelty to animals.
