[after filing for bankruptcy in August 1999] I can spread that blame all the way around for this. A lot of people are responsible for my insolvency. From me, to my accountants, to my adoptive parents, to my agents, to my lawyers... and back to me again.
[on working on Church Ball] Working with the cast was interesting. Many of them were quiet in perspective and kind of inwardly funny not outwardly funny. Some were very serious and dedicated to the craft of movie making. The others were just here to make their characters live and bring a little bit of levity and character development to to the film.

I still have the desire to do the job of acting. It's just a matter of whether I'll be allowed to do the job of acting that remains to be seen. There are only so many brick walls that I'm willing to beat my head on.
I parody myself every chance I get. I try to make fun of myself and let people know that I'm a human being, and these things that have happened to me are real. I'm not just some cartoon who exists and suddenly doesn't exist
I don't hurt or want for visibility, but people seem to forget pretty easily.

My parents were as much under the thumb of everyone else [and the network, and all the people that are part of the Hollywood machine] as I was. I have worked on episodes of Diff'rent Strokes (1978) 15 hours straight. And everyone was looking the other way and no one said anything.
By 1981, I got tired of the doing the show [Diff'rent Strokes]. I didn't wanna do it anymore. But there was nothing I could do about that, because the contract was already signed. So, I was a little bitter about that because I didn't wanna be there. The character [Arnold Jackson] wasn't growing up, and he wasn't interesting to me anymore.
