Quote of the Day for 2015-08-13

"Acting is a question of absorbing other people's personalities and adding some of your own experience."

Paul Newman (1925-2008) Quoted by Leslie Halliwell in Halliwell's Filmgoer's Companion for 1984.

Paul Newman and Piper Laurie in a promo shot from The Hustler (1961). The image shows Paul Newman on the left, standing up and buttoning his shirt. Piper Laurie is sitting down on the right in a corner of the room, partially naked, with a nearly empty bottle of liquor on the table in front of her. Neither looks very happy and the scene is one of discomfort for both of them.
