Happy Birthday: Kurt Russell

Born: March 17, 1951 in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” (On why he won’t marry Goldie Hawn)

I seem to have a knack for picking movies that go on to be cult favorites.

If it hadn’t been for video cassette, I may not have had a career at all.
[Talking about the fight scene with Ox Baker from Escape from New York (1981)]: “I remember Dick Warlock helped set up the fight and he came out with this big purple lump on the side of his head, and all he said to me was ‘Keep your head down and be careful, man.'”

I was brought up as a Republican. But when I realized that at the end of the day there wasn’t much difference between a Democrat and Republican, I became a libertarian.

To go on about acting as art is ridiculous. If it is an art, then it’s a very low form. You don’t have to be gifted just to hit a mark and say a line. And as far as I’m concerned, hitting my marks and knowing my lines is 90% of the job. I’m always criticized for talking like that. Maybe the reason I do it is that I never got the chance to develop a real desire to act. I was acting by the time I was nine so it seemed like a natural thing to do. Anyone who finds acting difficult just shouldn’t be doing it.
