Personal Quote:

[on rumors of Jack Nicholson's retirement] Jack is retiring? Yeah? Far out! I never hear the news in Hawaii. All I can say is he's a good actor and thanks for telling me the news. Personally, I don't want to retire. I feel like I'm about 8 years old on most days. See more »


Turned down the role of Oliver Barrett in Love Story (1970), despite being offered 10% of the gross. See more »
