Except me. I’m all Italian. I’m mostly Sicilian, and I have a little bit of Neapolitan in me. You get your full dose with me  (Al Pacino Quotes) There are a lot of roles in Shakespeare, basically. If I feel that the script is a movie, I would be interested in doing any role of Shakespeare’s  (Al Pacino Quotes) That’s where humour lives for me. In the body. The Steve Martin kind of stuff or Jim Carrey, that’s what I like. I’ve always felt that’s what I would like to do  (Al Pacino Quotes) Actually, the person I related to was James Dean. I grew up with the Dean thing. Rebel Without A Cause had a very powerful effect on me  (Al Pacino Quotes) Jamie Foxx does a good rendition of me. It’s a real gift, mimicry of that kind, the tonal thing. It’s sort of like having a talent for playing an instrument  (Al Pacino Quotes) The hardest thing about being famous is that people are always nice to you. You’re in a conversation and everybody’s agreeing with what you’re saying - even if you say something totally crazy. You need people who can tell you what you don’t want to hear  (Al Pacino Quotes) You need some insecurity if you’re an actor. It keeps the pot boiling. I haven’t yet started to think about retiring. I was shocked when I heard about Paul Newman retiring at age 82. Most actors just fade away like old soldiers  (Al Pacino Quotes) There are so many people I would love to work with, like Al Pacino, Paul Newman, Gary Oldman - maybe Tom Cruise. I wanna play his brother in something - so call my agent!  (Al Pacino Quotes) The actor becomes an emotional athlete. The process is painful - my personal life suffers  (Al Pacino Quotes) I’m an actor, not a star. Stars are people who live in Hollywood and have heart-shaped swimming pools  (Al Pacino Quotes) Did you know I started out as a stand-up comic? People don’t believe me when I tell them. That’s how I saw myself, in comedy  (Al Pacino Quotes) Francis Ford Coppola did this early on. You tape a movie, like a radio show, and you have the narrator read all the stage directions. And then you go back like a few days later and then you listen to the movie. And it sort of plays in your mind like a film, like a first rough cut of a movie  (Al Pacino Quotes) I’ve never cared for guns. In fact, when I did ‘Scent of a Woman’ I had to learn how to assemble one  (Al Pacino Quotes) I like, for instance, ‘Serpico.’ I enjoyed playing Serpico because Frank Serpico was there. He existed. He was a real life person and I could - I could embody him. I could, you know, I could work and get to know him and have him help me with the text, the script and become him. It’s almost like a painter having a model to become  (Al Pacino Quotes) It surprised me, the feeling I got when I won the Oscar for ‘Scent of a Woman.’ It was a new feeling. I’d never felt it. I don’t see my Oscar much now. But when I first got it, there was a feeling for weeks afterward that I guess is akin to winning a gold medal in the Olympics  (Al Pacino Quotes) My dad was in the army. World War II. He got his college education from the army. After World War II he became an insurance salesman. Really, I didn’t know my dad very well. He and my mother split up after the war. I was raised by my maternal grandmother and grandfather, and by my mother  (Al Pacino Quotes) ‘What’s the difference between sex and love?’ Hmm. That’s a good question.

That helps us solve all this stuff in our head  (Al Pacino Quotes) You know one scene I always think about is in ‘The Godfather’, when Marlon Brando’s in the hospital. Al Pacino arrives there and enlists the help of the baker to protect his father. The two of them stand outside and the baker fiddles with a cigarette lighter, but Pacino’s hands are rock steady. That’s when we sort of realize that he can do this  (Al Pacino Quotes) I have grown up watching Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Dev Anand, Amitabh Bachchan and the likes. These are actors who have changed with time. They have no shelf-life. They have immortalised themselves because they have evolved with time  (Al Pacino Quotes) [Marlon] Brando’s a giant on every level. When he acts it’s as if he landed from another planet. A planet where they produce great actors  (Al Pacino Quotes) That’s the way to live - around people who care. It may be a tough ride, but something is going to come out of it  (Al Pacino Quotes) It’s no stretch to picture me standing next to Al Pacino or Robert De Niro. Those are ethnic New York men. I’m an ethnic New York girl. Everybody has their limitations. I mean, I should never be cast as Queen Elizabeth  (Al Pacino Quotes) I’ ve won awards. And they didn’t make me feel bad winning them. They made me feel pretty good. But it also did not make me feel bad NOT winning the Academy Award  (Al Pacino Quotes)
