Rhythm is born in all of us. To be a desirable dancing partner, you don't have to do all the intricate fancy steps that happen to be in vogue. All you have to do is be a good average dancer, and anybody who spends the time and effort can accomplish this.
You bring out a lot of your own thoughts and attitudes when acting. I think a great deal of it has to do with the inner you.
One thing I turn my back on totally is the unsavory atmosphere at most discos.
I enjoy sports, and love being involved in any outdoor sport from volleyball to softball. I'm not being immodest when I say I'm a natural athlete.
Over the years, myths were built up about my relationship with Fred Astaire. The general public thought he was a Svengali, who snapped his fingers for his little Trilby to obey; in their eyes, my career was his creation.

I try to feed my hunger rather than my appetite.

I cannot abide stupidity, in myself or in others.
