Marlon Brando
I went home and did some rehearsing to satisfy my curiosity about whether I could play an Italian.

People ask that a lot. They say, 'What did you do while you took time out ?' - as if the rest of my life is taking time out. But the fact is, making movies is time out for me because the rest, the nearly complete whole, is what's real for me. I'm not an actor and haven't been for years.
