[on Clint Eastwood] Hardest thing in the world is to do nothing and he does it marvelously.

I’m not a violent man . . . There are many other things that happen in our lives other than crime and violence and I think, as long as we do them entertainingly, then what’s wrong with doing them?

[on editing] If you shake a movie, ten minutes will fall out.
