Working with Johnny, I just can’t begin to tell you, as the song says, because Johnny is extraordinary. I’d say it even if he wasn’t here. [Laughter] He’s a marvelous international movie star but he’s a great deal more than that, he’s a very gifted artist. There are lots of good movie stars at the moment, especially leading men in the States, but Johnny is miles ahead of that. He’s wonderful to watch let alone play with. It was a joy and I feel very privileged.
