They said that? — Kevin Spacey


 

Kevin Spacey in "L.A. Confidential"

We came from a time where you needed three reliable sources to write a story. Now a waitress in a coffee shop can say something…and before you know it it’s a story around the world. As a result of that there’s a lot of anonymous thing that are said… outrageous things that are said because they’re anonymous. I think if they had to put their name on it they may think twice about what they say.
