“So I started to think about what that meant. Many Kennedy Center honorees in the past have been movie stars in a classic sense. Actors with class and sophistication — Cary Grant, Henry Fonda, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck“He continues, ending with the punchline.
Damon adds, “And then… I think of George.” “A man who deceived Richard Kind’s cat litterbox as a joke.”
