You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what you're doing is work or play.
There's no point in making a movie just to be making a movie.
That's all gone, now, the old, Hollywood.
A director needs to be in control, but he really shouldn't be in complete control, because then things could be very boring, and he wouldn't take advantage of unexpected developments and opportunities.
If I had done some of the movies that I was offered as an actor, and very good movies by the way, and some of them big moneymakers, I don’t know that I ever would have taken what was the concentration or the time to do the movies that I produced. Reds is a good example, but Shampoo is also an example, and so was Heaven Can Wait.
I have been famous for a long time.
