“They say you stopped acting?” the old director was worried about his prodigy.
“Yes, i can’t. I am tired of the spotlight. I am just tired of criticism. I am tired of people writing crap about me.” the young actor was in pain.
The director put a loving hand on him, “There is a rule about criticism in the spotlight. Listen carefully to what they say about your work. Don’t give a fuck what they say about you. You are not what you do. That’s just a part of you.”
The young actor hugged his mentor and sobbed hard.
