Personal Quote:

[asked in 2003 interview whether he was born in 1947 or 1951] 1951. I have it on my passport and driving license. [I said 1947 in my autobiography] because I just wanted to maintain a constant lie. I was born in 1951 but see what a great thing it is, because everybody asks me? And I can keep it up--I can tell you I was born in 1952. Names and ages piss me off. So I just continually lie.
