As the actor celebrates his 74th birthday today, here are some of his most popular quotes:
"I'm not a great hunter. But I have fired guns in the past, when I was growing up. But it was part of growing up where I lived. You go out hunting or target practice. They also taught you to respect guns."
"Music can get me through anything."
"I am cursed with the inability to sleep on planes - ever."
"I am a stickler for always having to know what time it is."
"When you arrive to a set and you see the sky all lit up and the sets all lit up, for me it is very exhilarating and it's a lot of fun. It's really fun to see that and to be a part of it. It's just like going to the circus."
"I learned very early on just how important it is to work with good people. It's important to have a good prop department, and a good director of photography. A lot of people don't understand just how collaborative film-making is. Actors often get credit for making a film great, but film-making is a total collaboration and everyone should get the credit."
"I love getting into the research for the characters that I play. You do all that research and then you just give yourself to it and let go and allow it to take you where it wants to go."
