In case you’re on a practice subsequent to someone who’s actually fascinating, that journey goes to go by [so quickly] and also you’re going to adore it. But when that particular person is boring, it’s laborious and lengthy.
“A film or a TV sequence or any of these items are all the identical manner. You’re sitting on the sting of your seat, you’re leaning in on any of those horror motion pictures or any of those motion pictures, since you’re engaged with a personality, you relate to them, you care about them.”
