Personal Quotes
The fact that I don't like acting with women so much is a professional, not a personal thing. The hair and makeup become the obsessive thing. You're ready to go and suddenly it's 'Stop! My hair's coming down'. I mean, who cares?

(On playing bad guys) "I enjoy playing them. I find something human in them, with the exception of Looking for Mr. Goodbar. It was such a slimy character with no redeeming qualities. To me it was like playing Charles Manson. I had nightmares after I finished shooting it. I felt dirty. Bad guys are interesting, even if you don't like them."

[on his co-star Glenn Close in the 1977 play The Rose Tattoo when they were reunited in The Big Chill (1983)] Glenn looked so different then. She was a good 15 to 20 pounds heavier, her face was fuller, her hair was longer. I swear, when she walked in to do the first reading for The Big Chill, I did not know who she was!

(1975 quote) "I first started thinking about being an actor when I was in college at the University of Missouri. I auditioned for a television play, and the director, who has some professional New York credits, encouraged me to pursue acting. In college I had a double major--drama and film editing. I worked with 16 millimeter film upon graduating, and from Kansas City I went on to Dallas. All of this time I suppose I had an unrealized commitment to acting. But then, I guess I ran away from acting. I was afraid of the business--I still am."

(2002 quote) "Since the '70s I've seen myself as a poet. Sometimes I express that poetry through acting, sometimes through cooking, and sometimes just having a good chat, you know, one of them chats you have when you're stoned and the hour is getting late. I don't know what's gonna come my way, but I think Berenger's gonna be big these next couple years."
