Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t ‘traditionally’ beautiful, not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned but none of that matters because all that shines though is their confidence, humor, and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.
A few weeks ago, I was getting coffee at a laundromat. And this guy came up to me and said he wanted to thank me for Silver Linings because it helped his family understand him. That’s why we made this movie. My job here is done.
