Publisher Synopsis

"His just-published memoir...proves that Dern offscreen is every bit as unpredictable, compelling and explosively honest as he is onscreen." (Newsday, May 29, 2007)

schema:description"Bruce Dern has worked with practically every iconic actor and director in the last fifty years, and he's not afraid to say what he thinks about them. In this memoir, he looks back over his career, telling one memorable story after another and giving key insights into how placing artistic challenge over career development has kept one of Hollywood's greatest actors from also being one of its most rich and famous. He writes candidly about working with Alfred Hitchcock, John Frankenheimer, Claude Chabrol, Jack Nicholson, Paul Newman, Bob Dylan, Matt Damon, Charlize Theron, Jane Fonda, John Wayne, and many more. Readers will discover why he turned down potentially career-making roles, why his prestigious family disowned him, and why, after he was already famous, he agreed to star in The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant.--From publisher description."@en
