The more sensitive you are, the more likely you are to be brutalised, develop scabs and never evolve. Never allow yourself to feel anything because you always feel too much.

An actor is at most a poet and at least an entertainer.

I don't mind that I'm fat. You still get the same money.

Acting is the expression of a neurotic impulse. It's a bum's life. Quitting acting, that's the sign of maturity.

Regret is useless in life. It's in the past. All we have is now.

I'm one of those people who believes that if I'm very good in this life I'll go to France when I die.

I know I'm not an easy person to get along with, I'm no walk in the park.
