Personal Quote:

I don't think you can teach people how to be funny. You can make suggestions about how to speak a line or get a laugh, but it has to be in them. See more »

Trivia:

Described by British actor Leslie Phillips as "an absolute shit" in an interview with a local English magazine (in promotion for the film Venus (2006)). He said that Cukor "wouldn't listen to anybody", and that Gene Kelly had come up to him and said, "Look, if you suggest anything he will take your balls off. So you tell me what your ideas are and I'll sell it to him". See more »
