Stop worrying. Hollywood won't turn your daughter into a nymphomaniac or get her hooked on drugs... I will.
I have a high state of resentment for the conformity in this country. If you're not married and having children, it's like your life is empty or you're a communist meanie.
When we talk about values, I think of rationality in solving problems. That's something I value. Fairness, kindness, generosity, tolerance. When they talk about values, they're talking about things like going to church, voting for Bush, being loyal to Jesus, praying. These are not values.

  • Bill played Bob on an episode of "Roseanne" (1988). Ten years prior to the start of that show, he played a character named Bob in the movie D.C. Cab (1983) when he was an up-and-coming comedian.
  • Very good friends with Ann Coulter, Arianna Huffington and Christopher Reid
  • Was a major supporter of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry during the 2004 presidential election. Though he traditionally supports Democrats, in 2000 he threw his support behind Green Party candidate Ralph Nader.
