"You look at me sometimes. I want to know if you like me."
- Scotty J
I would have seen Boogie Nights more than once when it came out because it is brilliant cinema. But I saw it 8 times in the theatre because of you, because of Scotty. Pure pathos. I had never seen anything like it and I can’t remember ever having been so moved. Thank you, for this and so much more.
My, what a formidable void you leave behind you.
I sat with the director, Nicolas Winding Refn, at the Noho Star for four hours and told him why I wasn’t going to do his movie. I think that made him like me. As it was written, I hated the character. In the script, he was a Mexican, tatted-up guy who beat his wife and gave alcohol to his infant son. When you saw this guy, you wanted the blond people—Carey Mulligan, who played my wife, and Ryan Gosling, who played my rival for her affections—to get together. I absolutely did not want to play that role. So Refn said, ‘Make him anything you want him to be.’ And I rewrote my character.
