Referring to his change-of-pace role in "Hear My Song", Beatty mused, "I'm accustomed to being the son of a bitch whom audiences boo, not cheer."

"Acting styles are going through a change now. It's hard to be an older actor because you see it moving on and you don't quite want to go with it because it's not your way. Right now, there's a lot of what we call 'attitudinal acting.' We were always told never to do that because if you're putting forth attitude, it keeps you from putting forth behavior, which is what you really want." --Ned Beatty quoted in LOs Angeles Times, December 22, 1996.
