18 Because of memory loss problems, as a result of his drug addiction in the 1970s and 1980s, during the brief run of "Complicit" at the Old Vic in 2009, he controversially used an earpiece to enable the prompter to feed him his lines during performances. The play, co-starring Elizabeth McGovern and David Suchet, and directed by Kevin Spacey, was widely ridiculed in the British press as a result.

In both sequels, most of the original cast has returned to reprise their roles. Also, each original film was directed by two groundbreaking filmmakers, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg (both making their mark in the industry); and both sequels were directed by another director.

Quotes

#Quote
1 Film acting is about the hollowest experience you can have as an actor. When you do a film, it's out of order and sequence and everyone around you is working -- even directors now are behind the little video thing -- so you're alone. You're working for yourself.
2 I wouldn't recommend to a young actor anymore to become an actor because I think the film industry has changed so terribly. The tools in the director's tool kit used to be story, dialogue, character... after that came cinematography and editing. Now it's special effects, editing and we [actors] are way down at the bottom part.
3 When I saw Jaws (1975) for the first time, I forgot I was in it. It scared the crap out of me. That night, I heard something I'd never heard before. They [the audience] went crazy, and then they silently watched the scroll and then they clapped again.
4 I much prefer the stage. Much. But I also prefer being paid. I like being paid as a screen actor but working on the stage.
5 I'd like to reinvent radio the way Orson Welles did. I'd like to do Hamlet or I'd like to do a master-class in Hamlet, or I'd like to do something with history.
6 I always knew I was going to be an actor and that was that - no doubts, no uncertainties, no changing my mind. And that was when I was like, nine, ten. And it never changed.
7 Acting is the only art form that is based entirely on pretense. The clothes you're wearing are not yours, the words you're saying are not yours, you pretend that you don't see the stagehand and you pretend you don't see the audience - and the audience pretends you're not actors, that you're real life. And that house of pretense creates art and truth. And it is an amazing feeling to make people laugh or make people cry.
8 It's really a mitzvah for the actor to know when you make people laugh, you are giving them a gift. You are, as Shakespeare said, giving surcease from sorrow. And that's an easy thing to fall in love with.
9 [on The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974)] It was the first time I'd ever seen myself in a feature film as a lead, and all I could remember was the bad moments that I didn't succeed at. I didn't really see the film and the performance as a whole until about ten years later.
10 I always knew that I could be a star for this whole audience that didn't relate to John Wayne or Al Pacino. An urban, progressive, intellectually-oriented audience, not too macho, people who read, people who listen to Paul Simon and Randy Newman. People like me.
11 [2009] Jaws (1975), first time I saw it, I forgot I was in it. True. Totally forgot, and got as scared as everybody else, and it's a great movie. I learned a shitload about my whole life, and I watched Steven [Steven Spielberg] go from being a boy to being a man. He was under so much pressure you couldn't believe. And his shark never worked, so they had to re-conceive as they went, and it was because of that mind-fuck that he made a great film.
12 [2009, on What About Bob? (1991)] Funny movie. Terribly unpleasant experience. We didn't get along, me and Bill Murray. But I've got to give it to him: I don't like him, but he makes me laugh, even now. I'm also jealous that he's a better golfer than I am.
13 [2009, on The Day Reagan Was Shot (2001)] I thought I was miscast. He's a character I could empathize with. He's totally human. A physically bigger person should have played him, but it was fun, and it was especially fun because it was true, and it was a really well-written script in that way. But playing him... You know, every actor wants to play the villain. The trick is not to wink at the audience and say, "I'm not him".
14 [on James Stewart] You personify for me part of this nation. You symbolize an America that is gentle, ironic, self-deprecating, tough, and emotional.
15 [on Steven Spielberg] Steven Spielberg is the only person I've come across who fits my criteria of genius. And I don't throw that word around. Genius is imagination and attention to detail. The ability to achieve to the minutest detail what you perceive in your imagination. I don't think there's another person on earth who's as great a plot structuralist or better storyteller.
16 Behind all art is ego and I am an artist and I am unique.
17 I enjoyed the journey to the top but then found myself disappointed.
18 The motion picture business is run by corporate thieves.
19 [on Bette Midler] I loved working with Bette. I rarely get to have a good leading lady and Bette and Marsha Mason are the best. I'd work with them again anytime.
20 I don't think film acting is necessarily a triumph of technique. Film stardom is a friendship that happens between an audience and a performer. Its like you meet someone and you click with that person for whatever reason.
21 Actually, when I was a kid I was really more aware of the star and the handprints in Grauman's Chinese more than I was aware of anything else, including the Oscar. I wanted to have a star. I wanted to be able to see, you know, old gum on my star.
22 Happiness has a bum rap. People say it shouldn't be your goal in life. Oh, yes it should.
23 I really think that living is the process of going from complete certainty to complete ignorance.
24 [In 1976] People who commit adultery must die. Everyone knows that. Any movie tells you that!
