Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.

Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time

I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.

Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
The earth has music for those who listen.
