Ethan Hawke did a Reddit Ask Me Anything interview that I quite liked. I particularly liked:
Q: If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?
A: I don't want to say. You know, the things that we want to change about our lives are things we don't want everybody to know, and one of the most difficult things for me was having to learn in front of the public that having a reputation is a double-edged sword. It prevents me from making a first impression. I feel like I haven't made a first impression on anyone in 20 years. There are many things about my life and my behavior that I wish I could change, situations I wish I could have handled better, relationships I could have healed, but unfortunately the earth seems to turn one way and all we can do is try to learn.

I do quite enjoy being anonymous. Unfortunately, I am an investigate reporter: I'm actually a person. Alas.

I think if I changed any one thing, it would be to not be so complacent. I'm constantly so amazed and stunned by being alive on this fragile rock that I'm willing to enjoy things that aren't as awesome as they could be. It's part and parcel with preferring to be a lieutenant as opposed to being a captain. Maybe there's some alternate version of me that prefers to be a Leader. In this world I've seen enough that I much prefer helping things to happen as opposed to be the one forcing them to happen in the first place.
