Comments on: "Hugh Laurie Quotes: To be able to pretend to be something that I'm frankly not is..."
One of the principal goals in my life has been to avoid embarrassing my children by doing the job I do. I hope I’ve managed to do that, and I hope that, with the job I’m in now, they are, if not proud, at least unembarrassed by it. I must say, my three are most agreeable children, who do nothing but delight me.
