John Crowe Ransom

My sporting hero was Drazen Petrovic, the NBA basketball player, who was killed in a car accident in 1993. He was a good friend, an unbelievable player, and I dedicated my Wimbledon win to him.
A lot of new writers assume you have to know the where the story is going and that it flows out as molten gold.

I got into the movies by accident. When I got an offer, I thought, 'Let's try this, too.' Everything in my life has happened by trial and error. I didn't even think I would win the Miss India title, so where's the question of thinking I'd come this far.

I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce. But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?
