Golden Globes: Al Pacino won't talk right-to-die ... much
He gingerly sidestepped a question about his thoughts on right-to-die issues by saying, "I am going to stay away from that controversy. It's not my policy to speak about that. I'm sorry, I don't mean to be unbelievably dull."
Later, when a similar question was rephrased as, "In your opinion, is Jack the good guy or the bad one?" Pacino opened up a bit and revealed his true feelings.
"Jack, in a strange way, represents a kind of hope and that gives [patients] enough control over their lives. 'I can do it. I don't have to go through this. I can go out with dignity,'" he said.
The mood in the room was lighter when he was asked which movie in his career he would redo if given the chance.
"I can't possibly give away that many movies. I guess for most of the movies, I would say maybe not redo them. Maybe never have done them."
