“[The best advice I can pass on is] only do it if you’re not looking at your watch. If it’s the thing that you want to do in your free time, if it’s natural for you to want to look at a magazine or want figure out who the models are and understand hair and makeup and look at the sets and look at the colors and you love clothes just because you love them, then you know [it’s for you]. But, if you’re doing it for other reasons and it’s for the glamour or being famous, then forget it, cause it’ll drive you crazy. If you love it then you’ll be okay with it no matter where you are and what you happen to be doing, it won’t matter what your title is—you’ll be in a way better place and you’ll be happier.”
