Ryan Phillippe's Dreams Come True

Ryan Phillippe's Dreams Come True

Ryan Phillippe was on The Early Show this morning talking about his upcoming film Flag of Our Fathers (out today). Here are choice quotes from the interview:

  • On his dreams coming true: “This was a dream for me to be able to do a film with that sort of content and these people. My grandfather was my hero. He won a Bronze Star in Germany. He would tell me stories, periodically, usually about mechanical things, tanks and guns, not about death and his friends dying next to him.”
  • On working with director Clint Eastwood: “You hear the stories and the mythology, and it’s all true. The guy is incredible. He’s an amazing man. Look at him, 76 years old. He climbed the place we shot Suribachi. They had a helicopter that could have taken him up. The man is out there with two bags over his shoulders at 6 in the morning climbing this mountain. He’s something else.”
  • On Oscar night (“Crash” won Best Picture, wife Reese Witherspoon won Best Actress “Walk The Line”): “So surreal. I have little recollection of that night because of how overwhelmed I was in a sensory manner. It’s almost dream-like.”
  • On working on another war-related movie (Untitled Kimberly Peirce Project): “The men and women who make that sacrifice and are willing to give up their lives in a lot of cases are heroes to me.”
