Break my heart

I'm watching a segment of Biography on Marlon Brando. I appreciate that he was talented, a genius, even. An icon who revolutionized everything from film acting to fashion. (Where would I be without t-shirts and jeans?) But most of all, dear God …

How did he end up as he did? Was he trying to destroy the shell that made him famous? Or did he just love Big Macs?

I will think about this further as I do about a dozen leg lifts …
