I never disliked Bond, as some have thought. Creating a character like that does take a certain craft. It's simply natural to seek other roles.
I'm an actor - it's not brain surgery. If I do my job right, people won't ask for their money back.
Perhaps I'm not a good actor, but I would be even worse at doing anything else.
You know, the Oscar I was awarded for The Untouchables is a wonderful thing, but I can honestly say that I'd rather have won the U.S. Open Golf Tournament.
There is nothing like a challenge to bring out the best in man.
There's one major difference between James Bond and me. He is able to sort out problems!
Everyone talks about how they knew the Bond films were going to be a success, but it simply isn't true.
I care about Bond and what happens to him. You cannot be connected with a character for this long and not have an interest. All the Bond films had their good points.
