Lust tastes like tequila and love tastes like whiskey…Love burns for longer and warms you up on the inside and sometimes it makes you do stupid things. Tequila just makes you wasted.

[on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Joanna Kerns, who played Maggie Seaver]: We never went on a date, but we had chemistry, which our unrequited romance preserved for the entire show.

I play every week and I guess I used to be a better puck-ducker. During one of the pick-up games, I got in the way of a slap shot and it cost me five teeth and 30 stitches both inside the mouth and outside.

[on rumors he turned down the lead in “Schindler’s List”]: You know, that’s one of those wonderful urban…

[on her work with William Powell] I never enjoyed my work more than when I worked with William Powell. He was a brilliant actor, a delightful companion, a great friend and, above all, a true gentleman.

[Speaking in the late 1960s] I admire some of the people on the screen today, but most of them look like everybody else. In our day we had individuality. Pictures were more sophisticated. All this nudity is too excessive and it is getting very…

[on Ursula Andress] I’ve had luck with my leading ladies. The real shocker was Ursula Andress, with whom I made What’s New Pussycat (1965). She’s a bloody sex symbol and all that, and yet she’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. A real mother hen, looking after everybody.

[on Katharine Hepburn] I worship that bloody woman. I’ve never enjoyed working with anyone so much in my whole life, not even Richard Burton. There were no problems, not a one.

[on Sophia Loren] Sophia is gorgeous, a marvelously put together machine. But she’s a grievous card sharp; in Naples, they’re born with a pack of cards. Give her a nudge and she’s the funniest woman in the world. A helluva woman!

I think TV, I think right now, and I speak for many shows. Not just our show. That TVs now in it’s zenith. It’s how the 70s were for movies-the 2000’s are for TV. I think it’s a phenomenal time for TV and to be involved in it. And I, as you know, this show slightly preempted me that curve, but God am I glad that it worked out that way. Because I really, I didn’t have much experience with TV. I had mostly done movies and some plays. So I was very lucky to end up in a show that was not only successful, but was sort of groundbreaking in its own way, or at least it pushed some boundaries!

The reason I always loved ‘The Omen’ so much, and what has always been scariest to me, is anything to do with God. Anything to do with God is quite frightening because fear is something that’s very much expressed in a church environment, and I grew up in one. And the fear of God was very much instilled me at a very young age.

I can say this: You haven’t lived until you’ve had to wear a triplet pregnancy belly. You would be amazed at what a girl can learn based on the different months of pregnancy to make her character more interesting.

Happy Birthday: Vanessa Hudgens

Born: December 14, 1988 in Salinas, California, USA

[on her nude picture scandal] I’m much better now. But truthfully I don’t like talking about it. It was something that was meant to be private, and even though it isn’t anymore, I’d still like to keep it as private as I can. It was very traumatic, and I am extremely upset it happened. I hope all my fans can learn from my mistake and make smart decisions. But I wouldn’t have been able to get through it if it wasn’t for my family, friends, and fans, who supported me all along the way.
