When I was born in 1967, my father was a television star at Peyton Place. My mother met Leigh Taylor-Young there and about 9 months later I was born. My father became an international movie star in the early 1970s with 'Love Story'. During that decade he literally crushed it, appearing in movies like 'What's Up, Doc?', 'Paper Moon', 'Barry Lyndon', 'A Bridge Too Far', 'The Main Event' and 'The Driver'. He's a Hollywood legend. Period...", he said.
