At Marvel, “the only things we DON’T have room for are hatred, intolerance and bigotry. That man next to you? He’s your brother. That woman over there? She’s your sister.”#RIP #StanLee

What a man. What a life.
When I first broke into Hollywood, he welcomed me with open arms and some very sage advice I’ll forever take to heart.
A true icon who impacted generations around the world.
