Bill Murray Covers 'GQ' Magazine January 2013
Here’s what the 62-year-old funnyman had to share with the mag:
On winning all the awards except the Oscar for Lost in Translation: “The one time I got a bunch of prizes, I just assumed I’d win them all. Because I’d been winning them all. I wasn’t disappointed or anything, but I was surprised. I really saw something in myself and I thought, ‘Oh, my God. I really did want that thing!’”
On working with Wes Anderson: “Wes really knows what he wants. It’s not like, ‘Get the ham out there and let him oink.’ “Those limitations make it more challenging: ‘If I have to be in this box, how do I make it work? What can I do to make it really zip?’”
On his future in comedy: “It’s really a question I have. I think there’s something that I can bring to a comedy today, but I don’t know where to bring it. I’ve actually thought about having a manager again. Just to clear my head and have a plan. Eh, it’s not that attractive to have a plan. I know that if I ever feel that I need to make a funny movie, I’ll figure out how to write one. I’ll get it done. If I ever get some ambition, I’m gonna get some shit done.”
