T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
Clement Clarke Moore

Hollywood always represents this big dream and fairy tale in people's minds, but to me, it's just hard work. Of course, we play fairy tale on the red carpet. It's all Cinderella.
