Screaming actors, it seems, can be easier to deal with, perhaps because they are not always famous for their brains. Many years ago, I read a story about how Roger Moore (a nonscreamer) took a younger actor aside and suggested he stop attacking everyone on the set. “I'm not in this business to win a popularity contest,” the screamer fumed. “I just want to be a good actor.”

“Well, you've failed at being a good actor,” Moore replied reasonably. “Why not try for the popularity contest?”

Point taken. But what would Mr. "James Bond" think of my parenting style? (Link from Volokh Conspiracy.)

Roger Moore may not have been a screamer, but boy, did he have some powerful cussing eyebrows.
