Three Lessons From Gary Oldman On Acting And Relationships

Let’s take a look to see what we can learn about him and how to act in relationships.

1. Living truthfully is about acting

Acting means living truthfully in imaginary situations. I was told that by an acting teacher.

2. Parenting doesn’t come with a manual

As a parent, you have to tread carefully as you try to civilize these uncivilized things. They will spill the coffee and leave their finger marks on the table. It’s time to say “We’re gonna need to clean that up!”

Favorite Quotes From Gary Oldman

I was quiet, an introvert. I was one of those children who, if someone put me in a room with some crayons or pencils, wouldn’t hear me for nine consecutive hours. And I was always drawing cars, rockets, spaceships, and planes. These were things that were fast enough to take me away.

According to some, alcoholics are self-deprecating egomaniacs. It’s a perfect description. It’s a paradox: Being bigger than life but feeling ashamed.
