Reading screenplays troubles Pacino


Iconic Hollywood actor Al Pacino is grateful to his best friend Charles Lawton, a director and a cameraman, who reads scripts for him and advises him to choose his roles.

Pacino admits that he hates reading scripts and is afraid he would take wrong decisions if he had to decide for himself, reports website.

“I usually give it to my friend Charlie Lawton,” the website quoted Pacino as saying. “He’s my dear friend, and he’s been with me forever, since I was a teenager.

“I studied acting with Charlie. He reads them. I don’t like to read screenplays. I never did. I will read them... but usually Charlie will read it first. It takes me a while to get to it. I don’t know why. I’m not dyslexic or anything. I just have trouble reading screenplays.”
