My mother wanted me to be friends only with children she considered socially suitable.
When we lived in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, my sister and I did a local play. My whole family got involved. My mom did the makeup. My sister and I were being homeschooled, and my parents wanted us to be socialized. We had a lot of fun with the other kids hanging out backstage.

I always wanted to work with Spencer Tracy, which never happened, although I knew him well. And I never worked with Cary Grant.
