  • There's a big difference between wanting to work and having to work. And I had to learn that the hard way. Now money is very important to me, because I ain't got it.

  • [on actors taking themselves too seriously] The truth is ... myself, De Niro, Pacino, Hoffman, we were arrogant, pompous asses.

Quotes about James Caan[edit]

  • James Caan. Loved him very much. Always wanted to be like him. So happy I got to know him. Never ever stopped laughing when I was around that man. His movies were best of the best. We all will miss him terribly. Thinking of his family and sending my love. ~ Adam Sandler
  • James Caan was a true delight. My favorite memory of him was shooting part of a montage for the end of Elf and he started playing piano — he played beautifully — I sang and he played and I was just astonished by his talent! ~ Zooey Deschanel
