One of the world's greatest writers, Michael Marshall Smith has given a rather interesting interview to Digit about being a designer — because he did use to be a designer.

Somewhere in there, there's this gem:

I once had a bizarre conversation with someone while I was working on a film script. They asked what I did, and I told them, and they were clearly very puzzled. Soon afterwards it became apparent that they believed that movie actors came up with their own lines (I'm not making this up). So I realised that me claiming to 'write films' must have sounded weird or maybe even borderline fraudulent to them.
