Once during rehearsals for one of his plays, he apparently berated the lead for "only pausing enough for three stops, when the script clearly calls for four". :lol:

I fid Pinter impenetrable and irritating. Ditto Beckett.

I'm starting to wonder if he's retarded, this reads like the ramblings of an elderly relative:

still one funny bit:

[...]some journalists have behaved appallingly. They've been ringing on the door insisting on entrance. They don't like it if you don't respond like a chimpanzee. But I'm not a chimpanzee and I don't intend ever to be a fucking chimpanzee. Not that I've anything against chimpanzees.
