Put on a Frock and Dance!

I have no idea if Colin Firth, an actor I quite like, actually said this or not, but I really hope he did:
Actors are basically drag queens. People will tell you they act because they want to heal mankind or, you know, explore the nature of the human psyche. Yes, maybe. But basically we just want to put on a frock and dance.

Himself, who has always held to the late Chuckles the Clown's motto, ("a little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down the pants",) ought to appreciate that, I think.
