Born: January 5, 1931 in San Diego, California, USA

I got into acting because I wanted to act, not to become a star. The word ‘star’ is so strange, especially in this country, I think, I don’t know. It has something to do with a whole scene. Like with The Great Santini (1979), when I shook the producer’s hand for the first time – before I could even sit down in the chair – he said, “They’re talking about Oscars.” We hadn’t even started rehearsals yet. I mean, the whole industry is so geared to that – Oscars, the star system.
