I’ll get up and make sure I’m there for my family and friends. We all make mistakes. We all do things we regret. But, in a way, when you are a celebrity and you are famous, you are subject to different rules…”

There was a backlog of judgments about what I was doing, and there is usually a backlog of judgments from the court of public opinion.”
