When I’m with my family and my friends, I am not famous. I am me.”
“If you are looking for fame to define you, then you will never be happy and you will always be searching for happiness and you will never find it in fame.”
She goes on to talk of the constructive and provoking affect her mother and father had on her life and the way they supported her and taught her to be moral in no matter she does. “To know what it feels like to be loved, to know how to love and how to be loved is such an important thing.”
Moving on, the actor speaks of the influence the dying of her father had on her. While it was painful, Diaz strengthened herself to be extra like how her father wished her to be. She talks of a imaginative and prescient she had after his dying, which to her meant recognising and dwelling with “so many beautiful treasures” he left her with.
