There is a dreadful story that I hate actors. Imagine anyone hating Jimmy Stewart, or Jack Warner. I can’t imagine how such a rumor began. Of course it may possibly be because I was once quoted as saying that actors are cattle. My actor friends know I would never be capable of such a thoughtless, rude and unfeeling remark, that I would never call them cattle. What I probably said was that actors should be treated like cattle.
