I always thought I wanted to play professionally, and I always knew that to do that I'd have to make a lot of sacrifices.

I spent several years acquiring the obsessive, day-to-day discipline that's needed if you want to write professionally, then several more, highly valuable years studying fiction writing at the University of Iowa.
I trained in martial arts and wanted to become a UFC fighter. That was my goal. I only really learned how to dance three weeks prior to making 'Step Up Revolution.'

I have had a holiday, and I'd like to take it up professionally.

When it comes to personnel issues, I act professionally and respectful of former employees. I just assume that's a two-way street. It's disappointing when it's not.
L.A. runs on optimism, enthusiasm and flattery. I think you can go a little bit crazy. I've heard people say there's a limit to the number of years you can stay in this city without going slightly mad. It's just too damn sunny in every dimension - weather-wise, socially and professionally.
Music is my life, professionally, for nearly 60 years. To be recognized by the academy is still the highest honor.

I feel like it does get busier professionally, but personally, I think I choose how I spend my time more carefully, so it balances it out in that sense.

Scheduling down time as part of your routine is hard but worth it, personally, even professionally.
