Assunto:  Is it never or always in this case?
 
Mensagem:  “My head was never the same, my ambition was ever the same.”

From what I read on    http://blog.sfgate.com/dailydish/2010/09/22/jennifer-grey-never-recovered-from-matthew-broderick-car-crash/

Who said the above sentence was Jennifer Grey.

  And it would be exactly what Dale Thomas had explained. That is, "“My head was never the same, my ambition was still  the same.” 


 That is, fame wouldn´t change her, she didn´t  ambitioned such fame, so she wouldn´t
celebrate and relishing in her newfound fame.

 The item shows that she turned into America´s sweetheart overnight; but she, within  wouldn´t believe that.  She knew/felt within that she wasn´t the sweetheart of America, hence her ambition was ever the same (as before).
   She perhaps didn´t ambitioned a fame coming like that, since she felt pangs of guilt because the accident left two people dead.  Not her fault, but it´s like some traumatic experiences work in our heads.
