I made choices that were not judicious, and I have to live with that....But you have to quit feeling sorry for yourself and say 'I will not let this be my epitaph.'...My past sometimes comes up at inopportune times. But I've made it a footnote. Interview with People Magazine, Sep. 30, 2002 See more »
