Personal Quote:

[(1970), on actors and fame ] We're all a bit sick. After 20 years in the business, I can't pretend I'm a virgin about it. I still need love as much as the next one. The love and applause, that's what it's all about. Funny though. Even when we get it, as any psychiatrist will tell you, it's never enough. See more »
