Al Pacino says he has ‘perverse’ habit of starring in bad films

Al Pacino says he is getting “a little perverse” and developing “a bad habit” of starring in bad films.

The star of such classics as Scarface, The Godfather and Dog Day Afternoon told GQ magazine that he has signed up to star in films and play roles which are “not adequate” – but believes his involvement might improve the movie to make it “mediocre”.

Speaking in the joint interview alongside Robert De Niro, his co-star in the upcoming Martin Scorsese movie The Irishman, Pacino said: “I may be falling into a bad habit now.

“I think I’m starting to get a little perverse. I’m starting to want to do films that aren’t really very good and try to make them better.”

He continued: “Sometimes they offer you money to do something that’s not adequate. And you talk yourself into it.
