The characters that I play are real. They are real so they have as much right to be portrayed as any other characters.
Marlon and I never talked about our performances in The Godfather. What was he going to say? We knew each other. I spent time on his island with him. But you don’t talk about acting. You talk about anything but acting. I guess the admiration is unspoken.
Yeah, you can make new friends. I recently met a couple of people that are a lot younger than me. It’s a nice thing.
Reality is this moment.
Some people understand what it is to create something special, and others are thinking what they can get out of it.
I’m not going to read all the books I want to read.
I might like to do things that are more retiring. Like sit in a place and just look at the view. Take a nice walk. Have a coffee. But not retire. As long as I’m enjoying what I’m doing, why retire?
You go through a lot of different phases in life. I used to have dessert all the time as a kid. Now I don’t eat dessert much. Except when I’m in special restaurants and I tell myself, Well, I’m here. I have to have the dessert.
Now is now. Then is then. And the future will be what the future will be. So enjoy the moment while you’re in it. Now is a great time.
