Steve Guttenberg, Sage

I love the truth especially when it comes from unexpected sources, like 1980s movie star Steve Guttenberg. From an interview in the British Metro Cafe:

Q: You had a string of hits in the 1980s. What have you been up to lately?
A: ... Everyone keeps asking me that stupid question... I say: “Why do I need to do anything? I’m rich.” ... I’m enjoying life now. If I was a plumber and I’d done the most plumbing jobs between 1980 and 1990, everyone would be saying: “What a great plumber” - he says “f**k you to the world and he’s enjoying himself.” But for some reason, as an actor, you’re not allowed to say: “I’m f**king rich, bro.”

Q: If you’re so rich, why do you work at all any more?
A: I love the fame and the money and the power.
