I found what Al Pacino had to say very interesting and found what Paul Rosenfield had to say rather boring ("Actor, Actor," Dec. 29).

Al Pacino is an actor. That's the man's job. Of course, he's going to be a bit different, eccentric.

So Pacino is reclusive and values his private life and won't speak about his relationships. I think Rosenfield in this case is getting too used to the frivolous of the acting profession who would rather talk about a lunch partner or silly studio hype than . . . "the heart of matters," which is never easy to discuss.

Lee Strasberg said that "there is only the 'work,' everything else follows." May Al Pacino keep his secrets and keep 'em guessing.

Now if we can only get this guy in a good movie!
