[Joanne Woodward] has always given me unconditional support in all my choices and endeavors, and that includes my race car driving, which she deplores. To me, that’s love.

I’m always puzzled by this talk about star… image. I think there’s people who are writers or barbers or mechanics or race car drivers that have certain recognizable personalities, and I don’t think just because they happen to be on the screen that it makes them any more exceptional.
