I think every American actor wants to be a movie star. But I never wanted to do stupid movies, I wanted to do films. I vowed I would never do a commercial, or a soap opera - both of which I did as soon as I left the Acting Company and was starving.
I totally related to Cole Porter's magnetic pull to any piano that was in the room which he was famous for doing, as was Gershwin. You couldn't drag them away from a piano.
It was all completely incomprehensible to me. I was fearful of the language. You had to look up every third word.
You know, actors are fans, too. And talent is very attractive to me.
I don't like talking about myself. I don't like talking about my personal life.
But you have to trust your instincts. Because you're not going to try it 20 different ways during rehearsal. You'll try it two or three different ways, maybe, but then you've got five other scenes you're shooting that day. You've got to keep going.
