Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones talks to the world of Harvard magazine, 02138, about famous people’s opinion and building a fence along Mexico border.
On building a fence along Mexico border: The idea of a fence between El Paso and Brownsville bears all the credibility and seriousness of flying saucers from Mars or leprechauns. Or any manner of malicious, paranoid, superstition.
On non-famous people’s right to democracy: If you’re famous, your voice doesn’t really have any greater right to being heard than (that of) someone who’s not famous. Put it that way. It’s not very democratic.
