#Quote
1If you get to do a small part and people notice it...and everybody seemed to enjoy it and notice it, you can't go wrong with that, you know what I mean? If it's short, showy, funny, and they like it or they mention it, then you're home free. If you do a small part and they don't notice you, then you're in trouble...So short, sweet, funny, noticeable, anytime. I don't mind playing the lead - it just means you have to have lunch and dinner there.
2When I was a kid, if I had a fever, had a cold, had a fight, had a fall, had a cut, was depressed, had a disappointment, fell off a truck, woke up with a headache...no matter what the situation, my mother's solution was always, 'Eat this, it'll make you feel better.'
3I was really in this acting thing alone. My father was a peasant, a blue-collar worker, who was amazed that I got paid for what I do. He used to say, 'If you can make money with your mouth, God bless you!'
4I became a comedian when they laughed at my serious acting.
5I'm actually a thin serious person but I play fat and funny, but only for the movies.
