In conclusion, Marlon Brando added that his being a famous actor posed an ugly and difficult burden to his son. Through television, Brando believed that today’s kids are cynical because they’re being sold lies and false truths. Brando’s final thoughts when asked, he wondered why so many microphones were being placed in front of him. He wondered why people would want to talk to him and/or listen to anything that he had to say.
