Robert Stephens's quotes

  • [on "Hamlet"] It is undoubtedly the greatest part ever written, but it's so complex. You can't really play it, you just give an opinion of it.
  • [on comedian Sonnie Hale] A gross, unfunny person offstage and someone, on the whole, to avoid.
  • [on Tony Richardson] He convinced me (wrongly of course) that anyone can make a movie. All Tony Richardson ever did was come in and ask his cameraman what he should do . . . He was a useless, unpleasant creature.
  • Film acting is difficult to do properly. I remember I once said to George Cukor that I think it's as difficult to be Spencer Tracy as it is to be Laurence Olivier. He said, "Wrong, it's much more difficult to be Spencer Tracy".
  • [1993, to a journalist about to review his performance in "King Lear"] Enjoy the show, it gets funnier in the second half.
  • [on Laurence Harvey] An appalling man and even more unforgivably, an appalling actor.
