Such is an actor's life. We must ride the waves of every film, barfing occasionally, yet maintain our dignity, even as the bulk of our Herculean efforts are keel-hauled before our very eyes. [On filming MacHale's Navy]
Dignity is something that cannot be taken away, it comes from inside and not from clothing or accessories, and it is associated with respect. Keeping your dignity means staying calm and respectful in any situation, without losing your temper or reverting to foul language. Dignity shows that you have respect for yourself and that you are confident in your worth as a human being.
