[on Norman Mailer] Norman’s not capable of sleeping with a starlet and using her and then just saying “That was great, kid. Goodbye.” Unlike most men in Hollywood, he’s actually a feminist. He sees women as people, not just sex objects. He reveres women. He feels there’s kind of respect they must have.
[In a 1980 interview] Jean Arthur was ALWAYS my favorite actress when I was a kid. And I love Bette Davis for a very peculiar reason. Bette Davis is not afraid to stink! There are these careful actresses who look pretty, and they’re never bad, they’re never great. But Bette Davis goes; she’ll take chances. I love to watch her on the set. Sometimes it’s awful, but sometimes it’s FANTASTIC!
