Michael Caine on being an actor

Lovely quote by Sir Michael Caine (read here)
"I became a movie actor. The difference between a movie star and a movie actor is that a movie star looks at a script and says how can I change this to suit me and a movie actor says how can I change me to suit this."

Good one!

By this measure, Aamir Khan is a star as well as an actor! He looks at the script and says how can I change this to suite my POV. And then changes himself to suit the 'changed' script :)

Vishal: ha ha :-) I guess we can't argue he is neither, so perhaps he's just some of this and some of that.
