“Here’s the other thing that was really important to me that no one thinks about. I never made a decision in my career based on money. Not once. I’m not going to lie, it’s nice to have money. But I’ve also not had money, and I’m okay with that. We wanted to keep my body of work. All I ever wanted was a body of work. That can sound pretentious to people, but next to my family, my wife and kids, my body of work is the most important thing to me.”
