I started out as a guitarist in the early 1980s. I hooked up with a guy who idolized James Dean and he gave me a copy of the Dean biography, The Mutant King, which I thought was really interesting. While reading the book I watched Rebel Without a Cause, and I thought, 'Wow, this guy really has something,' and I was hooked. I wasn't really into acting at the time - but James Dean was the catalyst.

George Bernard Shaw
Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same.

George Bernard Shaw       
She [Ingrid Bergman] had chosen a very small part, and I couldn't persuade her to change her mind. She was sweetly stubborn. But stubborn she was ... Since her part was so small, I decided to film her one big scene, where she talks for almost five minutes, straight, all in one long take. A lot of actresses would have hesitated over that. She loved the idea and made the most of it. She ran the gamut of emotions. I've never seen anything like it.

Sidney Lumet       
Marilyn Monroe
Some people have been unkind. If I say I want to grow as an actress, they look at my figure. If I say I want to develop, to learn my craft, they laugh. Somehow they don't expect me to be serious about my work.

Marilyn Monroe
