Quotes

"Acting in the theatre is fun, acting in film is work."

"Men are literally lying in bed with their wives when the marriage is essentially overthinking, "I've got to get the hell out of here", and have a fantasy woman in mind. Then you get divorced, meet a woman, marry her, and, by the time all that goes by, you've aged a few years and are ready to go back to your ex-wife. You want a woman who is sane and normal. A woman who is more like you. You've gotten older."

"There are people who would rather choke than go see my movies. They write me letters all the time."
