All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark.
Famous people come up to me, but I don't know who they are because my sight is so bad. It's always at the pool of the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills when I don't have my lenses in and my glasses are in my room.
I was like one of those nauseatingly nice children. I was very, very well behaved and boring.
