Personal Quotes (1)

[on working with Stanley Kubrick in The Shining (1980)] He isn't a tyrant. Stanley is quiet. He's intimidating only because of his enormous talent... I have such admiration for him... I mean, even after [doing so many takes] I thought, "If he were to ask me to do another film, I'd do it.".
