    • QUOTES (2)

      • Meryl Streep: It's good to have something that is discoverable. Frankly, I think every human being has. I don't think I'm that mysterious, but I'm glad he (Jack Nicholson) thinks so.

      • Morley Safer: If you look at the movies being made, the big movies that are being made are, are about comic strips...
        Meryl Streep: (playfully waving her hand) Well, I don't see those!
        Morley Safer: ...vampires, or gross behavior.
        Meryl Streep: Yeah.
        Morley Safer: All aimed at, what, 18 year-old boys?
        Meryl Streep: Yes, that's called the narrowing of the audience. The movie business has worked assiduously to discourage you, and other intelligent, discerning people (Morley laughs) from the theater, from the movie theater. They have worked hard to get rid of you because you don't go then buy toys and games.
