Born: December 7, 1915 in Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA

The subtitle [of his memoir “The Good, the Bad and Me”] is “In My Anecdotage”. Bill Clinton asked me if he could use it, and I said, “You sold two million copies of your book. How dare you try to steal my subtitle!”.

I was at the premiere of The Holiday (2006), a movie I did with Kate Winslet. Surrounded by all these beautiful young women. And after they left, [wife Anne Jackson] comes up and says to me, “Honestly, I don’t know what they see in you.”.

Well, I go to the theater today, and its curtain – there is no curtain in this play; the lights go down and go up – and we start. And I live this character for two hours. There are only two of us in the play. And It’s a complete experience.
