"I'm heavy. This is the reality. I don't kick myself about it, but I don't think I look fabulous in my clothes. I know that in my suits I look like a box walking down the street," the 69-year-old told the LA Times in the '90s. "That's the thing that hurts me most. Thank God, there's a product out there that you can wear that's passable. It's corrective dressing, but it's not who I am and ultimately that's very hard."
