Before Ron Howard departed the Stern Show studio, Howard asked him about his relationships with some of Hollywood's greatest leading men. Check out his answers (below).
On Don Knotts' ladies-man reputation:
"He gained all this fame and the ladies discovered that he had something to offer and he reveled in that," Ron said.
On Mel Gibson:
"I had a great experience working with Mel. He's a terrific guy," Ron said.
On casting either Steve Martin or Jim Carrey:
"[Steve] is a genius ... Jim is like this explosive talent. Great physical talent. But I don't see them as ever [both] being right for the same thing," Ron told Howard.
On Michael Keaton:
"He reached a point financially where he didn't have to do roles he didn't want to do," Ron explained.
