I never wanted to be an actor. I got stuck in it and kind of liked what I was doing.
Ronald Reagan wasn't qualified to be governor, let alone president.
I saw my wife at a pool, flipped over her, and 14 days later we were married.
When I started working, I didn't have a clue what I was doing, in that I was just wandering around, hoping that I could succeed. Then after I got a little under my belt, it took me about 25 years to feel like I knew what I was doing.
Everybody wants blockbusters. I like to see a few pictures now and then that have to do with people and have relationships, and that's what I want to do films about. I don't want to see these sci-fi movies, and I don't want to do one of those. I don't understand it.
I've had to work hard at that easy-going manner you see on screen.
My goal has always been longevity. Not fame and fortune, just get a job and keep it.
People who don't know me think I'm easy-going, but I'm a pessimist by nature and an old curmudgeon.
When I'm pushed, I shove.
You can never have too many friends.
It wasn't until I'd turned 50 and had been in the business 25 years that I realized I might actually have a career as an actor.
I'm working out every day. I'm in very good shape.
The only reason I'm an actor is that a lady pulled out of a parking space in front of a producer's office.
The characters I've played, especially Bret Maverick and Jim Rockford, almost never use a gun, and they always try to use their wits instead of their fists.
I've done a lot of casual work, and acting is a lot easier than laying carpets.
