Comedian,Chris Rock sat down for an interview with Gayle King where he talked about quarantine and how therapy has really helped him. He said;
“You have to tell the truth,” “Sometimes I wasn’t kind, and sometimes I wasn’t listening. Sometimes I was selfish. And ultimately, who do you want to be? On the outside, it looks like I’m this daring person, but, boy, can I play it safe. I need to jump in the pool a little bit.”
“People get better and people change,” he said. “Right now, we’re going through this thing where we’re punishing people for thinking and feeling and saying things 20, 30 years ago. Do you know how easy it would be for me in one of my specials to name a name, or show a picture of someone and say, ‘This person called me (expletive)’ and ruin someone’s life? … I’m going to hope that what they did to me shames them in some way and they teach their kids better. That’s my wish for them.”
“Some jobs, you have to be totally accountable,” he said. “You have to have a zero tolerance for any shenanigans. Most of my dealings with the police are good. But … a couple years ago there was a cop who was like: ‘What are you driving around here for? You don’t live around here, do you?’ And I’m looking at him like, ‘You don’t live around here.’ ”
He also talked about getting Covid vaccine and being the funnyman ,he said;
“Let me put it this way: Do I take Tylenol when I get a headache? Yes,” he said. “Do I know what’s in Tylenol? I don’t know what’s in Tylenol, Gayle. I just know my headache’s gone. Do I know what’s in a Big Mac, Gayle? No. I just know it’s delicious.”
“I grew up in a ‘hood, and you can’t swim in a fire hydrant,” he joked. “There was something in my head that said, ‘If I can learn to swim, I can do anything.’ If I can conquer this in my 50s, I can do anything.”
Wow,that’s really nice and inspiring.
