“My first day on set, Faye Dunaway comes over to me all dolled up, and she was so cute.

“She said, ‘Darling, I just want you to know, I’m a big fan of yours. But don’t you know, they’re all just waiting for us to tear each other’s eyes out. So let’s have fun with them.’

“Everyone on set was going, ‘Uh-oh, here they come,’ standing there watching.
