Al Pacino quotes:
"I hope the perception is that I'm an actor, I never intended to be a movie star."
"Did you know I started out as a stand-up comic? People don't believe me when I tell them."
"I was hoping that we could have a museum where we had films; that there was a museum where films were, like, hung. Like paintings. And you went to the museum."
"Charles Laughton was my favorite. Jack Nicholson has that kind of persona; he's also a fine actor. Robert Mitchum's great. Lee Marvin, too. These guys are terrific actors.
"An actor with too much money will usually find a way to get rid of it."
"It was a new feeling. I'd never felt it, when I won the Oscar for Scent of a Woman (1992). 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. It's a wonderful feeling, a complete feeling."
"In America most everybody who's Italian is half Italian. Except me. I'm all Italian. I'm mostly Sicilian, and I have a little bit of Neapolitan in me."
"To me, it's not who you love...a man, a woman, what have you...it's the fact that you love. That is all that truly matters."
"It's good to have someone in your life that you're going through this thing with. It's good. That's a thing in life that I aspire to."
"Trying to give the right answer or what I think is the right answer. It's a human instinct. You try to be as clever as you can be. You're trying to come off like you really know what the hell's going on, when you don't!"
"There are times when I have a temperament. I hope I'm gentle. Yes, I think I am."
