I apologise that sometimes I have put my career first.
I apologise to my friends for all the times that I have not been able to go out and experience fun times, because of lack of money.
I apologise for hoarding money when work is good, in order to save up for times when work is not so good.
I apologise for behaving unprofessionally in other spheres, in order to maintain professionalism in acting.
I apologise for being far too excited when work is obtained.
I apologise to my east coast friends and loved ones — that time I had to leave for opportunity in California was pretty hard.
I apologise to my California friends and loved ones — that other time I had to leave for work in the Southeast was also really difficult.
I apologise for promoting projects far too much.
I apologise for sometimes “dropping off the face of the earth.” Sometimes I just need a little time.
I apologise for the fact that everyone around me is forced to make sacrifices, as a result of mine.
Please forgive me for being an actor.
