My mom did not have money. She was a single mom, on and off in periods between marriages.

I used to live above Manganaro’s, when old Times Square was still peaking, and it still had a lot of diners and theaters on the forty deuce, as they used to call it. It was full of character.

I don’t want to be 45 competing with 20-year-olds, running to go get Botox. I want to be an expressive actor hired for the age that I am, portraying women who are my age: 40. I’m just hoping I can find some of those roles to play. Otherwise, I have to find something else.

Nobody has money right now. And eating is very important, but it doesn’t need to be expensive. And to make – it doesn’t need to be fancy, as long as it’s fresh and simple. The simpler it is, the more fancy it actually comes out tasting.
