Went looking for Cinderella instead

VENICE — William Friedkin, talking about his new movie “Killer Joe” at a Sept. 8 fest press conference, opined, “All women are looking in some ways for a Prince and Princess Charming, and often get a hired killer. This is true. I’ve been married four times! I was looking for Cinderella and instead I’ve found hired killers.” He did, however, make an exception for Sherry Lansing and second wife Jeanne Moreau, “a wonderful woman and actress. What the hell she was doing with me I have no idea.”
