Matthew Modine and Stanley Kubrick on the set of Full Metal Jacket.
"He’s probably the most heartfelt person I ever met. It’s hard for him, being from the Bronx, with that neighborhood mentality, and he tries to cover it up. Right underneath that veneer is a very loving, conscientious man, who doesn’t like pain, who doesn’t like to see human suffering or animals suffering. I was really surprised by the man." — Matthew Modine
"Matthew Modine was perfect for the part. He’s a combination of sensitivity and macho virility. If Gary Cooper and Henry Fonda had a baby—it would be Matthew Modine." — Stanley Kubrick
