Amanda Peet Talks About Failure

Words That Make It Worth It . . .

"I think it's important to know you can fail and then recover. You cannot escape failure. There's no way you can control everything that much. When you've gotten horrible reviews — and in the early days, I got some that were probably pretty well-deserved — it's almost liberating, because you're like 'I'm still breathing. I'm still married to my husband. I'm going to go back onstage tonight, and I have no choice in the matter.' Then the curtain goes down, and you've actually done it and you take the bow. There's nothing better than that in the world."
