Billy Crystal on Monsters and Overcoming
You, too, can accomplish the impossible!
Overcomers Always Work to Get Better. “I don’t get scared,” Crystal says. “My fears are always, ‘Can I be better than I was?’” That constant desire to improve is a key characteristic in overcomers, and it influenced immeasurably Crystal’s performance in Monsters University—the second time he played Mike Wazowski for the big screen. “You have to work really hard to bring these characters to life,” he says. “Especially with Mike because he’s a very high-energy guy, but I don’t want to sound like Daffy Duck; I want him to sound real.” Mission accomplished.
