Richard Dreyfuss was interviewed after the Oscars and was asked who, out of the current crop of young actors, really excites him and makes him think, “that’s a great actor.” Dreyfuss, who’s at the damn Oscars, said, “I don’t go to movies anymore. I don’t really go to movies and I… I’m busy. And I’m busy being married and retired.” Then he was asked how that was going. The interview went downhill pretty quickly from there.
Crotchety old Dreyfuss answered, “Well… I’m trying to save the country and win the Nobel.” Adding, “I want people to resign the preamble. As a matter of fact, I’d like everyone in the country to resign the preamble just as a reaffirmation of who we are because every people has the right to know who they are and why they are who they are so the Koch brothers, I invite to sign the preamble of the Constitution of the United States. And if they’re gentleman and they say no, they should explain why.” Yea, like the guy said, “best of luck with that.”
If I was the guy with the mic, I’d have backed away slowly. Granted, I don’t think it would have made any difference because Dreyfuss would have kept talking into thin air even if everyone left.
