Kurt Russell Talks Playing the Hollywood Game with 'GQ'
Here’s what the 65-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On his legacy in movies: “Most of the movies I’ve done, people have had a good time with. Some of them I’ve done they’ve had a great time with. And then some of those movies that I’ve done are not just going to stand up, they fall into the category of: Yeah, a hundred years from now, there will be some moviegoers that will look back and say, ‘Well, look at that guy… I mean, that was a hundred years ago, but he knew what fucking time it was. He knew what he was doing.’”
On Walt Disney asking him for advice before his death: “He was a cool guy, great guy. He reminded me a lot of my grandfather.”
On playing the Hollywood game: “There are some specific reasons for that under-appreciation thing and I’m responsible for them. Did I play the game correctly? You bet I didn’t! I did not. I didn’t go to the events. I didn’t say the right things to the right people. I said the wrong things to the right people.”
