I intend to live the first half of my life. I don't care about the rest.
I felt like an impostor, taking all that money for reciting ten or twelve lines of nonsense a day.
I've made six or seven good films - the others, not so good.
It isn't what they say about you, it's what they whisper.
Women won't let me stay single and I won't let me stay married.
The public has always expected me to be a playboy, and a decent chap never lets his public down.
It is a mistake to think you cant be hurt if you don't care.
My dream of happiness: a quiet spot by the Jamaican seashore . . . hearing the wind sob with the beauty and the tragedy of everything. Sitting under an almond tree, with the leaf spread over me like an umbrella.
