“나에게는 아주 하룻밤이었다,” 별이 말했다 GQ Style for their Fall/Winter cover story. “[공동 출연자] Michael Cera와 나는 항상 그것에 대해 이야기합니다.. 우리는이 정말 드문 경험을했습니다: 어느 날 인생은 하나의 길이었다, and then one day life was a different way. Right after ‘Superbad,’ I took a writing job on ‘Brüno’ [with Sacha Baron Cohen].”
“나는 ~였다 23, and they asked me to host SNL for the first time,” the 37-year-old continued. “And I didn’t want to leave the writers room. 나는 같았다, 얘들 아, I don’t know what to do.; It was my first job working for Sacha. And Sacha was like, '친구, you should go host SNL.’ 나에게, having a writing job for Sacha Baron Cohen was as rad as hosting SNL.”
The actor said he had “너무 많은 힘” at such a young age. 결과적으로, Hill said he needed a break from Hollywood.
“I was a kid,” 그가 설명했다. “I had probably too much power for a young person, and too much autonomy, and not enough life skills. I dropped out of college, and I used to not get why people would go to college. Because if you’re ambitious, why would you spend four years just idling? And then I didn’t realize until I turned 30 that what those four years gave all my friends was this wobbling period of how to be a person.”
“I was really advanced professionally but really behind personally,” Hill told the outlet. “All my 20s, I wasn’t really looking inward. I was just running toward success. Or trying to find success. And when I was 30, 나는 같았다, I’ve always wanted to be a director, but if I don’t get off this train now and write ‘Mid90s’ [그의 2018 코메디] I’m not going to do it. And I hit pause. I took three or four years to reshape things. 나는 같았다, ‘I could just do this for 10 more years and I’m not going to evolve as a person.'”
오늘, Hill still considers himself to be a “workaholic.” 하나, he has found a greater balance in his 30s juggling fame and his personal life. Hill also credited the power of therapy and the many lessons it has taught him on having a more fulfilling life.
“I still write and direct and get all my projects in order and stuff. But then I also surf every day,” 그는 말했다. “I make myself surf every day. I don’t know if dropping out is kind of the accurate word, but I kind of dropped out a little bit. I still love my creativity and my work. But I definitely live a very quiet lifestyle, where I surf, hang with my dog, hang with my nephews. Just keep it mellow.”
