[1984 remark on Barbra Streisand] The most extraordinary … er … uninteresting person I have ever met. I just found her to be a terrible bore … She was doing something and asked the director if I wouldn’t mind saying my lines in a certain way. I think I said something to her like, “I was acting before you were born, so please don’t tell me how to act.” And she said, in her own inimitable way, “Is this guy crazy or something?”.
