De Niro and Pacino have lost their passion, says Coppola
Coppola, who directed both actors in the Godfather trilogy, told GQ that he does not feel they have the passion of younger actors and the desire to "be great" anymore.
He also said that Jack Nicholson would not go after a role even if he was "hungry" for it, as he already has influence in the industry in addition to money "and girls".
"I don't know what any of them want anymore," he told the magazine. "They all live off the fat of the land."
In addition, he expressed his belief that Pacino was not very rich because he refuses to spend any money.
Coppola's next film, Youth Without Youth, stars Tim Roth and is due for release in the UK in December.
