[and he] Start telling me about all these stories about [his] Life and we start a conversation. And the conversation runs across ‘Munich’, through ‘Lincoln’ and ‘West Side Story’.

Spielberg added, “Everything I’ve done so far has prepared me to finally be honest that it’s not easy being a kid. The truth is that everyone sees me as a success story… but no one really knows who we are until we are brave enough to tell everyone who we are. And I spent a lot of time trying to figure out when I could tell that story, and I found it when I turned 74. I said, ‘You do it now.’ And I’m really, really glad that I did.”
