Of course it lands on some cushions and it's fine, but I didn't want to set that example, because you never know what nuts or kids will see it and think I can do that. The director said, 'The dog's fine, the dog's fine!'. But I said, 'I just can't do that'. Of course the film was a tremendous hit, but I didn't regret turning it down.

 I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time — and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones — I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.
