Quotes

"Early on in my film career, when I started getting interviewed, I decided I was going to lie to the press, since I didn't think I had anything to say that was really of value. Over the years, I've just lied about a lot of things...I've sometimes found it a little difficult to know who I am. And when the media insisted on finding out, I just flat-out told a lot of different stories. When I did North Dallas Forty, I invented this history that I'd played college football. One year, I told some reporter that my first wife, who I had recently divorced, had been a high-wire performer in the circus. It ended up in a national magazine. She called me up and said, "Nick, why would you say a thing like that?"

"Oh, the Wild Man. Yeah. I might have cultivated that for awhile. It doesn't necessarily make good press, but it gives them something to go by."
