“You’ve always been so kind — that’s saying a lot in this business because we like to be mean!” she joked with tears streaming down her cheeks. “There’s not been one time that you haven’t treated me like I had something to offer. Even when the film was horrible and you knew it, you never let me see it in your eyes. When I made crazy life decisions, you never questioned. You were so welcoming. I just felt special, even when I felt very insecure. And everyone in this room and in this country has felt this every day that you have been in their home.”
