"Visconti was the teacher. Severe, but we like him. Fellini is your benchmate, the one you sit next to and make jokes. With Fellini, we always make it a joke. The more serious the film, the more we laugh. We don't say, 'oh maestro, how beautiful is this thing you are creating!' We think this, but we don't say this." --Marcello Mastroianni, quoted in TIME, October 12, 1987

"When I make films, I am absolutely happy. That's why I make so many films. This is a most beautiful thing, to be with 60, 70 people on a set and to make stories. It helps me to act. I work seriously but never take myself seriously. I want to enjoy myself--really enjoy--like a child. Because all actors are children . . . And when the film is finished, I am looking for another film. Otherwise my life is a little more bored." --Mastroianni quoted in TIME, October 12, 1987

"My legs are skinny, my face has no power or resolve...They knew where they were going--or at least, we presumed they knew. I haven't any idea. If they were heroes, then I'm a nonhero." Comparing himself to other leading men like Clarke Gable, Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart and Paul Newman." --Marcello Mastroianni, quoted by journalist and author Curtis Bill Pepper in 1987
