Danny DeVito's Andy Kaufman Quote

The Danny DeVito interview on Marc Maron's WTF podcast was amusing (hat tip to Pzaas), but a brief Andy Kaufman note was worth the 90 minute commitment.

Pushing back gently against the extreme vibe of the Kaufman biopic "Man on the Moon":
Andy would be sitting in his dressing room, eating sushi, during the day, and you could go in and talk to him, and hang out with him, without having to worry about becoming part of project.
Like everything, it's better in DeVito's voice. The brief Kaufman part begins at 1:06 at link above. Entire podcasts have been devoted to Kaufman, but that way of expressing it - “art project” - was so true and insightful that it might be my favorite-ever quote about him.
