Personal Quote:

First of all, the word superstar really turns me off--and I'll tell you why. The word "star" man, it's an illusion. it's something what the public calls you. You should look upon oneself as an actor, man. I mean you would be very pleased if somebody said (punches his fist into his open hand) "man, you are a super actor!" it is much better than, you know, superstar. See more »

Trivia:

Despite his incredible martial arts skills, he was known for possessing a personal collection of firearms for self-defense purposes, and even a couple of his martial arts movies have his character requesting to use a gun. One of the reasons he agreed to star in Enter The Dragon (1973) was that he believed he'd get to use a gun at one point and he was disappointed at not being able to. See more »
