Personal Quotes (3)

Sometimes film is just the family business. Some families are generations of carpenters or farmers, or they make clothes, or they're all lawyers. I'm in the family business.
Why should I ever get fed up talking about my father? He was a brilliant, colorful man who left us with thousands of memories. Most people remember his films, but I've got anecdotes and advice and episodes of real life tucked away inside my head. I'm always amazed that there are more to come out, but one day something triggers something off and a new memory of him emerges, like a ghost.
I seem to play a lot of losers.
