No Country For Old Men (2007)
"But it was me birthday the other day and I was walking up the street and I bump into Morrissey! And I’m thinking, ‘I’ve slagged him off in the past and he’s going to fill me in here!’ He’s about six foot, enormous and I’m only a skinny drug addict and he’s going to kung-fu kick me in the chest! I thought he was going to batter me!
“So we walk past each other and sort of go ‘…Alright, Alright. And we stopped and had a bit of a chat. And it was alright until he went, ‘Do you live around here?’ So I tell him where and then he notices I’ve got this huge bag of booze and he goes, ‘Are you having a party?’ And I go ‘Yeah, it’s my birthday’ and I was thinking to myself, ‘Oh God, I can feel myself inviting him to my party, oh no!’ And you know what it’s like when you can feel yourself inviting someone along somewhere when you know you shouldn’t? It would’ve freaked me mates out if he’d turned up.
“But I could feel the words coming out anyway, I’m thinking don’t do it, don’t do it but I’m saying, ‘Why don’t you come along?!?’ And he goes, ‘Well, what time should I be there’, so I go home and start thinking I’m going to have to call the thing off. Nothing for it. Next thing this card appears through the letterbox from Morrissey saying, ‘Sorry, I can’t make it, but give us a ring if you want to go shoplifting’."

Why I’m in love with Morrissey
To be or not to be.
Crappy quality but hey: Harrison Ford at the It’s-a-wrap-for-Indy-let’s go-swimming-in-the-ocean thingy. Doing this face!
Jimmy was also very nearsighted. He could barely see four feet in front of him. He thought that it helped him tremendously as an actor because he had to imagine everything that was happening beyond that point. I remember sitting in the commissary at Warner Bros. at a table with Jimmy and Natalie, and Dick Davalos, who played Jimmy’s brother in East of Eden, came and joined our party. I thought Jimmy was being very rude to Davalos. He didn’t say hello and didn’t acknowledge his presence. When Dick started having a conversation with Natalie, Jimmy said, “Davalos, is that you?” Dick said, “Yea, its me,” sarcastically. Jimmy said, “Wow man, its you,” and he got up and hugged him. “I couldn’t see you man, I left my glasses in the trailer.” I’m not sure whether Davalos, who had been sitting at the table for ten minutes, ever believed him or thought he was just doing a number. - Dennis Hopper

Interviewer: What were the highlights of your life?
Jack: The first screening of Easy Rider in Cannes, because I had been there before sneaking around. When I was sitting in the screening I realized that I was actually going to be a movie star. When I was over there I was pretty much already thinking about directing because I had been doing movies for 10 or 12 years by then. And everybody said I was good, but being known and not having a big film success is almost tougher than being completely new. It just kind of turned my life around and was definitely a highlight.
Interviewer: Do you ever get that same buzz now?
Jack: When they say I’m a great actor, I close my ears because it’s not good for you to think that way.
Interviewer: You seem pretty confident though.
Jack: Well, you know, I put on a good show.
