You grow up in a Sicilian household, becoming an actor is not a big leap.
My grandfather was a chef for a Baron in Sicily before he came to America. I grew up with him. I used to do my homework at one end of the kitchen table while he cooked at the other end.
What makes cookbooks interesting is to find out about the people and the culture that invented the food.
I had a wonderful time playing Dr. Kaufman in Tomorrow Never Dies. It was a real Bond villain, over the top, almost laughable but dangerous.
Your face is your calling card, but you're not so famous that you can't go out.
I directed a piece of theater in Italy. We took nine fables from the town and we created a play.
I get to meet a lot of people, and I really like people.
I have a second bedroom I don't use. I'm going to start the Second Bedroom Film Festival. You're all invited.
I met Milos in 1967. I was working on a student film. And there is Milos Forman. So that's how I met Milos.
I shot this wonderful picture called American Saint a couple of years ago, which is still looking for release.
My grandparents told endless stories about the town they were from. It became an almost mythic place.
The eye condition that I have is Marfan's Syndrome.
To be a Bond villain, you only get to do that once in your life. You never get to come back.
