[In a 1987 magazine interview] I have a theory that peer pressure doesn’t end with high school. It may be more glaring there because the groups are so distinct socially; but it doesn’t let up as you get older. There’s pressure in any business to choose a safe project, to go with the group. In corporations, there’s pressure to be seen with the right people; to eat in the right restaurants; at all costs to avoid the smell of failure. A case in point was the pressure on me to choose a ‘safer’ title than “Pretty in Pink.” You constantly have to fight to keep everything from being reduced to the lowest common denominator. Standing on your own is not a thing that ends in high school.
