It’s incumbent upon a director to give his trust to every actor that he has cast from the very start, but the director isn’t owed that same immediate trust. He has to earn it, because the actor is far more vulnerable to the director than the director is to the actor. — Dwight Yoakam

Chris Evans Visits Patients At Children’s Hospital Boston

I was pretty sick as a child.  Seriously, the doctors and nurses knew what my mother’s voice sounded like over the phone and I remember a good many of the medical professionals that touched my life as a child and adolescent.  I think because of all that time I spent having medical issues, I always find it to be just the best thing ever when I see any kind of celebrity taking time out to visit sick kids.

Everything you do for a kid really does matter, even if it doesn’t seem like it would.
