I don’t have a lot of respect for talent. Talent is genetic. It’s what you DO with it that counts.
[on Paul Newman] A cool sexuality that is unique in the American cinema — an amused quality and a high promise of sex and danger.
[on Sally Field] Sally is one of the best, perhaps the best, actress I’ve ever worked with. Her rushes on Norma Rae (1979) were so good that I found myself crying over some of the more dramatic scenes. She’s simply astounding.
[on Barbra Streisand] She’s got the balls of a Russian infantryman.
