Quote of the Day
I want a baby from an Italian - possibly Sicilian - donor.
In America most everybody who's Italian is half Italian. Except me. I'm all Italian. I'm mostly Sicilian, and I have a little bit of Neapolitan in me. You get your full dose with me.
I'm pretty Sicilian if I've been crossed. I don't seek revenge, but I never forget. And I make it hard to repair, which is not a great quality because if people held me to that standard, no one would be around me - ever.
I grew up in the Lower East Side, an Italian American - more Sicilian, actually.
My mother was a strong-willed and opinionated woman - a Sicilian! - and if she didn't like something, she'd let you know about it. So her undying support of her kids went a long way in proving to us that we were on the right path.
As my Sicilian grandfather used to say, you get more flies with honey than with vinegar, right?

I love Italian food but that's too generic a term for what's available now: you have to narrow it down to Tuscan, Sicilian, and so on.

I like Sicilian food. It's real peasant food.
My mom was Sicilian, my dad was Sicilian. Mom was a great cook, but all the women were.
I've always been able to cook Italian food. That's in my blood because I'm half Sicilian.
You grow up in a Sicilian household, becoming an actor is not a big leap.
The Sicilian Defense album was never released and never will be if I have anything to do with it. I have not heard it since it was finished. I hope the tapes no longer exist.
I took acting and elocution lessons, to get rid of my Sicilian accent.
