I don't want to be Babe Ruth. He was a great ballplayer. I'm not trying to replace him. The record is there and damn right I want to break it, but that isn't replacing Babe Ruth.
Don't worry about it. Babe Ruth struck out on occasion, too.
Well, I'm a Harley Babe.

Mr. Rickey, I'll put more people in the park than anybody since Babe Ruth.
The kids know me from 'Babe,' but usually it is 'L.A. Confidential' that people remember, which was the second film I did. I have worked with some really good people and the films that I've done for the most part have been good.
I know what I look like. I'm not a babe who's automatically going to be the leading-lady type. I think I would always be cast as the friend. I probably tend to look crap more often than I look good. I like messing around and pulling funny faces and doing funny walks.
Oscar Charleston was the Willie Mays of his day. Nobody ever played center field better than Willie Mays.

Or there was a black guy in Atlanta who might break Babe Ruth's home run record? No.
The whole sex symbol or babe thing doesn't bother me.
Honestly, at one time I though Babe Ruth was a cartoon character. I really did, I mean I wasn't born until 1961 and I grew up in Indiana.
It was funny, when I thought of it afterward, how Ruth and Gehrig looked as they stood there. The Babe must have been waiting for me to get the ball up a little so he could get his bat under it.

It's the same with the ballplayers. Babe Ruth spent a lot, too and the ballplayers make a lot more money now.
I wanted to dismantle the bollocks that there's a military structure to a gang, with a leader, second leader, the good looking one, first babe, second babe. It's far more arbitrary than that and their values shouldn't be romanticised. They aren't something you want to sign up to.
The Babe was a great ballplayer, sure, but Cobb was even greater. Babe could knock your brains out, but Cobb would drive you crazy.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
