I think people often confuse success with fame and stardom.
Fame and stardom sat very easily on Elizabeth Taylor's shoulders.
I like the character roles. Somewhere back there I really came to the conclusion in my mind that the difference between acting and stardom was major. And that if you become a star, people are going to go to see you. If you remain an actor, they're going to go and see the story you're in.
Pop stardom is not very compelling. I'm much more interested in a relationship between performer and audience that is of equals. I came up through folk music, and there's no pomp and circumstance to the performance. There's no, like, 'I'll be the rock star, you be the adulating fan.'

You know, rock stardom... I have a hard time discussing that because I don't really accept it. It's not really that tangible.
