If I wasn't Eddie Albert's son, I'd be someone else's. It gave me a chance to do a lot of traveling, but mostly I'm glad I'm his son because he's such a good man.
I don't really care how I am remembered as long as I bring happiness and joy to people.
And so I missed those best years and I find it difficult for me, in groups, to be comfortable.
Usually in features, I'm the lead. I consider the director the captain, but I consider myself the first mate, and it's up to me to keep in contact with the heart of the crew.
What's the most important thing in the world? It's love, and I look at that as an energy, not a sentiment.
