“When I started out… you walked onto a film set and it was all men. Really it was like walking into a locker room of an NFL team. It was a very, very male atmosphere. Maybe there were one or two women on the set. And my God, how much things have changed. I’ve witnessed that change… That’s why I want to live another 40 years… because I want to see what further changes are coming. It’s coming, women and girls, it’s coming! Enjoy it. And have a drink.”
