Pacino: I Overact

Movie legend AL PACINO has confessed he frequently overacts, but he reckons he gets away with it.

The 64-year-old actor is famous for flamboyant roles in movies DOG DAY AFTERNOON and DEVIL'S ADVOCATE - but he insists it's acceptable to overact as long as the message is conveyed.

Pacino says, "Sometimes, I have gone over the top. It's just me, plain as passion in tatters. It's always hard to censor yourself.

"But as long as you take a thing and connect with the passion and that is what is communicated, I think the theatricality is valid. Anyway, as (poet ROBERT) BROWNING said, 'A man's reach should exceed his grasp/Or what's heaven for.'"
