It was my father who – after, at age 15, I had attempted unsuccessfully to drive the family car using a ‘borrowed’ key and knocked down a wall of the garage – convinced me over the telephone not to run away from home and who then came home from work not to punish me but rather to console and comfort me.

I’ve had times when I’ve done what seems like a thousand interviews to promote a film that I’m in. I start to think that I’m the best thing that ever happened to the world, talkin’ about myself for cryin’ out loud. Then I come home, and my wife needs me to help with dinner and empty the garbage, and the kids need help with their homework.

‘Feminist comedy,’ practically an oxymoron, had a couple of good years after WWII.
