Joe Pesci's Quotes

  • [on his good friend and My Cousin Vinny (1992) co-star, the late Fred Gwynne] It takes somebody who's very serious to pull off a character like Herman Munster [from Gwynne's series The Munsters (1964)]. It's not simple to play the goof. Fred was not Herman. He was an intelligent, quiet gentleman.
  • [on Raging Bull (1980)] I remember being asked do you think we should shoot in black and white or in color. And I said black and white without any hesitation.
  • [on Robert De Niro] We work so well together. It's like breathing in and out. It's so easy for us - we feed off each other.
  • [on Martin Scorsese] Marty is probably the best director I've ever worked with and one of the best directors of our generation and previous generations.
