I met the partner of an actor acquaintance recently, and the partner said to me that when he heard that the actor was an actor, he was uninterested in pursuing a relationship, but that when he realized the actor was "realistic" about all actorly aspirations, he changed his mind and they hooked up.
What sorts of aspirations does the actor's partner, this mighty paragon of practicality have? you may wonder. Equities investments? Real estate? No, this advocate of all things real spends much of his time drawing.
