A tale I heard
Actor Laura Dern on turning 50 and catching up with her daughter's perspective on life:
"That generation doesn’t believe that anyone has the right to define who they are to them, and that includes their sexuality, their sense of self, how they want to be, quote, ‘branded’. Boy, we were all raised so differently.
What comes with this moment in life, for me, is a kind of sense of boldness that I thought I had in my 20s, that I was actually nowhere near. Now I feel like I’m ready to be an actor, now I feel I want to tackle anything. Now there’s just a longing to explore more, dive deeper, find things that scare me. And go towards them."
