There's no such thing as ageing gracefully. I don't meet people who want to get Alzheimer's disease, or who want to get cancer or arthritis or any of the other things that afflict the elderly. Ageing is bad for you, and we better just actually accept that.
Aubrey de Grey

Abdallah II of Jordan
I've said this before, but after 'That '70s Show' ended, I solely wanted do films that inspire me, and to work with people who make me better.

In short, if they're out there, we better hope they never find us.
I'd love to be in the '70s. I'd love to have a big, long wig parted down the middle with flat-ironed hair and bell-bottoms. They're actually very flattering for my figure. The wider the leg, the better for a person with a booty.
John F. Kennedy
