"My favorite comedy of all time? That's easy: 'Being There.' It's not just a comedy. It's a deeply touching drama. It really crosses genres in an amazing way.
"When I first saw it, I was totally amazed. In that movie, Peter Sellers isn't just an actor, he is like... a savant. That role required someone with a special talent and he nailed it. And Shirley MacLaine? Also amazing!
"I just really, really love that movie."
