Married to:

[on current comedy, 2013] The world has become more abrasive, possibly because of social media. But people said that about us. The sexuality seems to have lessened. There’s more squeamishness about nudity and sex, but there’s a lot more scatological interest today than there seemed to be thirty years ago. It’s a weird shift.

[on John Belushi and Animal House (1978)] What John brought was this wonderful energy based on the comedies he loved from the 50s – The Three Stooges and Abbott and Costello – that physicality of the great American early comedians, against this very brash and contemporary way of speaking that the script had. It made it very special.. But when I worked with him before the movie and SNL, he was Brando onstage. He was the guy you couldn’t take your eyes off. One of the great tragedies is that with his addictions he lost control of all his talent.
