Geraldine Chaplin: (about 'Dr Zhivago') Although I went all over the world promoting it, I'd never got to see more than the credits before being whisked away. Finally, at Cannes, I was to sit through the whole thing through. When I appeared for the first time, I fainted from the shock - and woke up in the ladies room.
Geraldine Chaplin: I thought it'd be easy to get into the movies as Charlie Chaplin's daughter. And I suppose it was. Except I wasn't much good as an actress - really terrible at the beginning.
Geraldine Chaplin: Daddy has never seen anything I've done, but he is the best critic I have. He has taught me how to tear down a character. 'Slug your guts out' is his philosophy of acting. Never mind the talent, just work hard.
