A woman, a dog and a walnut tree, the more you beat them, the better they be.

Acting is like roller-skating. Once you know how to do it, it is neither stimulating nor exciting.

I am not one of those people who would rather act than eat. Quite the reverse. My own desire as a boy was to retire. That ambition has never changed.

I don’t ask questions. I just take their money and use it for things that really interest me.

I was beastly but never coarse. A high-class sort of heel.

I never really thought I’d make the grade. And let’s face it, I haven’t.
