I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse.
I don't think I was constructed to be monogamous. I don't think it's the nature of any man to be monogamous. Men are propelled by genetically ordained impulses over which they have no control to distribute their seed into as many females as possible.

I have eyes like those of a dead pig. Marlon Br
George Bernard Shaw said that thinking was the greatest of all human endeavors, but I would say that feeling was. Allowing yourself to feel things, to feel love or wrath, hatred, rage.
The power and influence of a movie star is curious: I didn't ask for it or take it; people gave it to me. Simply because you're a movie star, people empower you with special rights and privileges.
I think awards in this country at this time are inappropriate to be received or given until the condition of the American Indian is drastically altered. If we are not our brother's keeper, at least let us not be his executioner.
When I lie on the beach there naked, which I do sometimes, and I feel the wind coming over me and I see the stars up above and I am looking into this very deep, indescribable night, it is something that escapes my vocabulary to describe. Then I think: 'God, I have no importance. Whatever I do or don
If there's anything unsettling to the stomach, it's watching actors on television talk about their personal lives.
At Paramount, I sat at lunch with John Wayne. I couldn't even talk.
To grasp the full significance of life is the actor's duty, to interpret it is his problem, and to express it his dedication.
He's the kind of guy that when he dies, he's going up to heaven and give God a bad time for making him bald.
I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. That's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight razor and surviving.
Regret is useless in life. It's in the past. All we have is now.
I went home and did some rehearsing to satisfy my curiosity about whether I could play an Italian. I put on some makeup, stuffed Kleenex in my cheeks, and worked out the characterization first in front of a mirror, then on a television monitor. After working on it, I decided I could create a charact
Acting is the expression of a neurotic impulse. It's a bum's life. Quitting acting, that's the sign of maturity.
Hollywood is run by Jews, it is owned by Jews...
The only thing an actor owes his public is not to bore them.
An actor is at most a poet and at least an entertainer.
Bertolucci is extraordinary in his ability to perceive, he's a poet...he is very easy to work for.
If there are two hundred people in a room and one of them doesn't like me, I've got to get out.

The most repulsive thing you could ever imagine is the inside of a camel's mouth. That and watching a girl eat octopus or squid.
Horror... and moral terror... are your friends.
Sometimes you just get the feeling that here it is 11o'clock in the morning and you're not in school.
The close-up says everything.
I'd gotten to know quite a few mafiosi, and all of them told me they loved the picture because I had played the Godfather with dignity. Even today I can't pay a check in Little Italy.
