What Sara said
In the clip, Sara said, “If one is as big a celebrity as you are, it could get difficult to be seen as a human being. There is so much glamour, there is so much pressure that sometimes it’s difficult to see who you are and I think for your family and children, there is this beautiful personal peace.” Responding to this, David said, “Thank you for saying that and I don’t think it has been explained and talked about like this. It’s a perfect description.”
