The only reason they come to see me is that I know that life is great - and they know I know it.
I'm no actor and I never have been. What people see on the screen is me.
Every picture I make, every experience of my private life, every lesson I learn are the keys to my future. And I have faith in it.
I bring to a role everything I am, was and hope to be.
Method actors are like hams.
AIf any child of mine becomes an actor I will turn in my grave.
Single men never have any problems. I suppose that the public builds some kind of idea from what they've seen of me on the screen.
When I came to town 25 years ago my six feet, two inches were considered pretty high up. But year by year they keep coming in - taller and taller. Today, it would appear than an actor under six feet is virtually a runt.
