I love European movies and I kind of grew up on European films.
I would have loved to have met Marilyn Monroe and have dinner with her.
I was in Florida with Burt Stern, the photographer who shot Marilyn Monroe on the beach with a sweater, and we smoked a joint. The bathing suit kept coming off in the water, and I just ripped it off. I was very comfortable being naked.
I'd kill myself if I was as fat as Marilyn Monroe.
I was just thinking of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe and how young they were when they died. I would like to be a pop icon who survives. I would like to be a living icon.
I've been close to Bette Davis for thirty-eight years - and I have the cigarette burns to prove it.
By the way, Marilyn Monroe was a size 14.
A lot of old guys in movies are like cowboys - they talk like cowboys and they dress like cowboys.
I never felt being an actor or making a movie was an easy thing to do.
I'm going to college. I don't care if it ruins my career. I'd rather be smart than a movie star.
I didn't see Dr. No for a year, but I liked it when I saw it. It was a fun movie. I don't like the Bond movies now. I hate special effects.
A lot of movies are about life, mine are like a slice of cake.
After the enormous success of All About my Mother, all the awards and everything, I wanted to start a movie in exactly the same place that I used to be before. I wanted to show that all of the success had not changed my perception.
Truly great actors carry their characters in silence with them. They communicate without words the relationships that predate the movie.
Diana Ross is a big inspiration to all of us. We all grew up watching everything about her - her mike placement, her grace, her style and her class.
For me the greatest source of income is still movies. Nothing - stocks, financial speculation, real estate speculation or businesses - makes more money for me than making movies.
It was the most fun I've ever had on a movie. It was one of the happiest times in my life. I was living in New York, and I really enjoyed acting at the time. Also, it's funny because that was also the time when I went downhill.
I would sign on for projects that were meant to shoot in July, and then they would postponed and they would bleed into the following semester, and then I'd take a semester off, and then the movie would collapse.
It would be great to make a movie that had the style of a great '30's film.
To play June, I had an immediate connect with her background and culture. We grew up with the same religion and shared a lot of the same values of family and spirituality. But I was really so inspired by what a modern woman she was.
A lot of people just go to movies that feed into their preexisting and not so noble needs and desires: They just go to action pictures, and things like that.
We live in an age when it is cheaper to buy the rights to movies than to make them.
I want do a Mandarin language movie. It'll probably be the next movie I do after the one I do next.
I wanted to do another movie that could make us laugh and cry and feel good about the world. I wanted to do something else that could make us smile. This is a time when we need to smile more and Hollywood movies are supposed to do that for people in difficult times.
He ate and drank the precious Words, his Spirit grew robust; He knew no more that he was poor, nor that his frame was Dust.
