You gotta water your plants. Nobody can water them for you.
You gotta understand: I believe a woman should praise the man, the king. If you holding it down for your woman, I feel like the woman should praise. And the man should praise the queen.
You gotta understand, when moving images first started, people wanted sound, color, big screen and depth.
You gotta understand, there weren't a whole lot of roles for Hispanics in the Eighties, so comedy was really the way I could really feed myself and eventually feed my family.
