Larry David: The Incredibly Happy Life of TV’s Favorite Grouch - GQ
Is the world’s most infamously neurotic man actually its most self-actualized?
’I wasn’t brought up to think that I was going to be able to do anything,’ David says. ‘It never occurred to me that I could go on and make something of myself’
… ‘Let’s face it, if Seinfeld doesn’t come along, what happens to me, really?’ he says. ‘Here’s what I think: I think I’m living in a studio apartment in New York. I think I’m miserable doing it. I think I hate everything and everybody, including myself most of all. I think I’m a guy walking down the street, screaming at people for slights like a bump-into without a sorry, things like that.’ I tell Larry I find that a little terrifying, the idea that one’s direction in life could be so tenuous. ‘I do too,’ he says.
