One of my ex-wives once said to me, 'You have to work at a marriage'. And I said, 'That's the most ridiculous thing', because my parents, they didn't work at the marriage. If you have to work at a marriage, it's not going to work. It has to be sort of a natural thing. But my ex-wife would say, 'You have to work at this, you have to do this, you have to do that'. And I'm saying to myself, 'Man, I work all day long, well into the evening. I don't want to come home and work at a marriage. A marriage has to be very easy'. My father would come home, have dinner, and take it easy. It was the most natural marriage I've ever seen.

[when asked if he would run for President of the United States] People wanted me to very strongly and I decided I didn't want to do it. I sort of enjoy what I'm doing and I continue to enjoy what I'm doing. I have never had more fun. And then to cap it off with a star on the walk of fame today was just a lot of fun. And, you know, it's just -- it's just very sad to me what's happening with this country in terms of world and in terms of world perception.
On Alan Sugar, host of the British television Version of "The Apprentice": "I don't know what Alan Sugar looks like. You know, I own the show, but I don't even know what he looks like. I mean, I hear he's doing nicely, not like we're doing over here, but doing fine."
