I’m Tom Shadyac, director of Ace Ventura, Nutty Professor, Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty. After a recent brush w death, I decided to share my story of the hypocrisies I woke up to, the changes I made in my life, my views on true wealth&what we can...
Directing successful Hollywood movies brought with it the spoils of success, i.e. lots of money. A growing discomfort with my new-found "wealth" (and the agreements we make to get that wealth) led me to give away much of this money to people and organizations that needed it more. Quietly, I dismantled much of my estate, eventually trading a mansion for a mobile home. (Don't feel bad for me, it's a beautiful mobile home, but one that is out of the bigger-is-better paradigm.) For the next 10 years, I kept most of the changes in my life to myself, until one fateful day in 2007, when a routine concussion from a mountain bike accident turned deadly, and would change the course of my life forever. I made a documentary about it, and now a book. http://lifesoperatingmanual.com/
