Quotations

Kind of like the difference between making love and masturbation, I'd say.

Responding to the question "What to you is the difference between stage and film?" in Inside the Actors Studio|Inside the Actors Studio, Season 4, Episode 13 (aired 15 November 1998)

Religion is not black and white. It's much more complicated. Spirituality is much bigger than that. God is much bigger than that. I don't believe in a wrathful God. I believe he's much more forgiving and inclusive than some religions. The things that are done in her name or his name are horrible.
