Cary Grant


After watching Cary on a television broadcast, his mother, then in her nineties, reprimanded him for letting his hair get so gray. “It doesn’t bother me,” he replied carelessly.

“Maybe not,” said his mother sternly, “but it bothers me. It makes me seem so old.”


I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be and I finally became that person. Or he became me. Or we met at some point.

~Cary Grant
