Quote by Stephen Fry
I've never had any illusions about being a lead actor in films, because lead actors have to be of a certain kind. Apart from the beauty of looks and figure, which I cannot claim to have, there's just a particular kind of ordinary-Joe quality that a film star needs to have.
The quote reflects the speaker's understanding of their limitations and self-awareness in the realm of acting. They acknowledge that being a lead actor requires certain qualities, such as physical beauty and a specific relatable quality, which they believe they do not possess. This explanation highlights their humility and realistic perspective on their own abilities and opportunities in the film industry.
