QUOTES:

[About his difficult relationship he had with his father] I wanted him to love me, and I’m quite sure that he didn’t.

[Of Connie Francis] We looked passionately at each other, but that was the only time I ever saw her.

If X or Y is gay, and you say so and they’re in the closet, then that can…it can possibly hurt them. That sort of reticence I understand, as an actor, or an ex-actor. But if the personality is deceased, and some co-star will still not say, then you can chalk that down to homophobia.

[When he finally came out of the closet] It was such a relief. I lived in fear of being found out. Now it’s given me a whole new mission in life.
