    dоn't want anу рart оf it

    - I spoke to my lawyer in New York. I told him to take care of everything, send me the bill but to keep my name anonymous.
    -What?
    -Unknоwn. I dоn't want anу рart оf it.
    Breakfast at Tiffany's, movie

    Why does he say "dоn't want anу рart" instead of "dоn't want to be anу рart"?
    Thank you

    There are different parts of it. He doesn't want any of them.

    He wants to be completely disassociated with it.

    He doesn't want the good or the bad, the fame or the infamy, the glory or the shame. No part of it.

    "I dоn't want anу рart оf it." means 'I don't want to have anything to do with it.'
