[talking about his experiences early on in his career] It wasn’t about control. It was about the co-lla-bo. There’s great directors who treat actors like cattle, but I hated it, and I knew if I ever had a choice, I didn’t want to work with those guys. Who said that thing about actors and cattle? Hitchcock [Alfred Hitchcock]? Yeah, I don’t want to work with that dude.”
