I knew at an early age I wanted to act. Acting was always easy for me. I don't believe in predestination, but I do believe that once you get where ever it is you are going, that is where you were going to be.

I was 22 before I took my first dance class. I had never been athletic, so I was very stiff; I still am. I think what I got mostly from dance was carriage.

I just wanted to be an actor. It's better to be well-rounded.

You want to retire from a job you're not that all enamoured with. I love what I do. I want to keep doing it till I can't get out of bed doing it.

Ben - Sir Ben - is always a lift. He's always interesting to watch, so you just try and remember your lines.

I was always ambitious. I always wanted to be more than I was....I always wanted to be a movie actor.

No one is really a method actor, everyone has their way of going about it, preparing for it, but method is preparation, it's what you do to prepare. So my method is to read the script. Some actors' method is to read the script a hundred times and in the doing of it, to immerse themselves in as much of the reality as possible. Me, I believe strictly in acting. If I am out of breath, I'm out of breath. I ain't running nowhere.

Let me tell you what justice is. Justice is the law. And that man's feeble attempt to lay down the principles of deceny.

My approach to acting is that I am totally intuitive. I read the script and I get it. If I don't get it, I can't do it.

Race seems to me to be less and less a subject worth discussing.

Rob [Reiner] is a teddy bear. He's hell delicious. He's a really good director. He's a great soul. In the movie business, I would call him a movie mom. The only person I hold in equal esteem is Clint Eastwood. Now I have worked with a lot of terrific directors, and I don't mean to be putting any of them below their own station, but these two, I relish working with them.
