As a true-blue Punjabi, I have learnt to tackle disappo

As a true-blue Punjabi, I have learnt to tackle disappointments, especially since I have no godfather in the industry.
Arfi Lamba
Friends would ask, ‘Have you seen ‘The Godfather?’ and I’d be like, ‘No.’
Gia Coppola
It started with the Godfather, this operatic violence. I don’t know.
William H. Macy
I like ‘Citizen Kane,’ I like ‘The Godfather,’ all the ones that everyone should see, whether you’re an actor or not.

Matthew Perry
Whether you were talking about Pillsbury, Burger King, Godfather’s, the National Restaurant Association, in each one of those situations, I had a daunting problem that I had to solve. And I used the same business principles to approach the problem and, more importantly, solve the problem in every one of the situations.
Herman Cain
My mum left my dad when I was six months old, so I don’t know him at all. I had no male figures in my life, really. I had my godfather, but he’s more like a grandfather, so I was quite sheltered. I’ve never tried to find my father.
Catherine Tate

Steven Van Zandt
Les Paul was my godfather.

Jonah Hill
I have no godfather.
At 90, I’m still working a couple of dates a month. My mind is very sharp on the stage, so why not? This may sound corny, but I do it because people – young and old – still come to see me, and they’re very enthusiastic about my work. They treat me like the Godfather.
Don Rickles
Like everyone else, I can barely take the waves of embarrassment that come with watching someone do something so badly. Roseanne Barr singing the national anthem, Sofia Coppola acting in ‘The Godfather: Part III,’ Sarah Palin talking about Russia – they all create the same level of eyeball-squinching discomfort.
Rebecca Traister
I’m tired of Italian gangsters. Not that I don’t watch ‘The Godfather’ every morning when I get up and ‘Goodfellas’ when I go to sleep at night. But I’ve just always been fascinated by Russia as a country, by the Russian personality. And now Russia is literally a gangster nation.
Richard Belzer
Listen, man: I am not the industrial godfather, king, whatever. I don’t relish that title. I don’t like it. I think it’s limiting. I do country, I do blues. I don’t just go straight.

The godfather of rap, that is what I am known as, and the king of party records, the records I do.
Rudy Ray Moore
I think Eddie Murphy is the greatest comedian. I do think that Richard Pryor is the Godfather, but Eddie Murphy, in my opinion, has every comedic category in his arsenal. He can roast you. He can freestyle. He can host. He was LeBron James before we even saw LeBron James.
Lil Rel Howery
I think that Poe is so resonant because he represents that part of us that is in misery or sorrowful or wants to explore the darkness. He wrote a great story called ‘The Imp of the Perverse’ about the instinct towards self-destruction. Poe is the godfather of Goth literature and that whole movement.
John Cusack
He knows I rip him off every day. He’s the godfather for me. Nobody can say they aren’t influenced by what Stevie Wonder has done.

Do we root for Michael Corleone in the ‘Godfather’ films? I think so, even if he is a monster.

Zoya Akhtar
People love stories about the mafia: ‘The Godfather,’ ‘American Gangster.’

‘The Godfather’ was the glorification of a bunch of bums who never existed.

The biggest piece is my family… From watching films like The Godfather on our dining room wall, to having a great relationship with my sibling. Or going on weekend trips with our cousins to the beach and eating all day… it’s been a crazy childhood; a ‘bohemian one’.
Zoya Akhtar
I didn’t go to many movies. My mom would make a family outing and bring chicken in the theater. Smell up the whole place. The most impactful movies were ‘Godfather II’ and ‘Scarface’. I loved the human complexity, and those movies are so well shot. Cinematic greatness. I really stopped going in my early twenties.
‘The Godfather’ illustrated the family values – the reality that it was really a family thing, honor and tradition. It wasn’t just a single-dimension thing.
Frank Vincent
I like myself the way I am. I have no filmi background, no godfather.
Vatsal Sheth
I didn’t have any godfather in the industry and had to prove myself with each film.
Aditi Rao Hydari
Appropriation is a fact of life; no point in complaining about it. But if that’s the way the game’s being played, let’s do it on both sides. I don’t want some white guy making ‘A Rage in Harlem III’ if I can’t do ‘The Godfather V’ or ‘E.T. III.’
Bill Duke
Any comic like myself owes everything he has to Lenny Bruce. He was the originator. The godfather of uncensored American stand-up is clearly Lenny Bruce.

Joseph D. Pistone
I’m very particular about the pizza that I eat. Godfather’s is still a premium-quality product, and I cannot always find that. It’s got to be as good as Godfather’s or I won’t eat it.
Herman Cain
I feel slightly embarrassed by being called ‘the godfather.’
Geoffrey Hinton
International affairs is very much run like the mafia. The godfather does not accept disobedience, even from a small storekeeper who doesn’t pay his protection money. You have to have obedience; otherwise, the idea can spread that you don’t have to listen to the orders, and it can spread to important places.
Noam Chomsky
I can’t talk about the education of black children if I ignored two of my nieces who were a couple of grade levels behind. I believe that charity begins at home, and I take seriously the role of a godfather to fill the gap when the parents aren’t doing their job.
Roland Martin
I can’t leave home without certain movies. ‘The Godfather’ is a big one for me. And I’ve gotta have my beats so I can write new music.
I’ve grown up around cinema. Michael Kamen was a very, very close friend of mine, sort of my godfather. So I know how much work goes into it. You have to know what you’re doing.

Joy Mangano
I love ‘The Godfather.’
Joanna Kulig
I’m not being presumptuous, I hope, when I say that ‘The Crown’ is little bit like ‘The Godfather.’ It is essentially about a family in power and survival.
Peter Morgan
Most importantly, I realize the value of the other people – the extended family – the other people within my community, my cultures: my teachers and the other people I call Auntie, Uncle, Godfather, Godbrother, whatever. These are people who pulled you in and made you part of their lives and their homes.
