[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!
