In this week’s issue, John Lahr profiles Al Pacino:
“As an actor, Pacino has always been unafraid to do what he needs to in order to be in the moment; he trusts his instincts and explodes with whatever feelings come up. Performing, for him, is not so much a profession as a destiny. ‘This is what I’m meant to do,’ he told me. ‘It’s the cog in my life. With this, everything suddenly coheres.’”
Watch Lahr comment on some highlights from Pacino’s career.
