Bill Murray Covers GQ January 2013
The 62-year-old comedian struck a few goofy poses while donning Burberry London for the Peggy Sirota shot front page and chatted about portraying Franklin D. Roosevelt in the "award-worthy" flick.
A few highlights from Mr. Murray's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to GQ!
On his approach to comedy:
“It’s not so much what you do, but the way in which you do it. I can slap you on the back and it can be a wonderful thing, if it’s done with joy. But if I slap you on the back just as you’re coming out of the elevator, and I’ve had too much to drink, it’s a completely different thing.”
On "Hyde Park On Hudson" being Oscar-worthy:
“They look at this film as an award-winning film, and that road is paved with glass and razor wire, as far as I’m concerned.”
On today's comedies:
“I think there’s something that I can bring to a comedy today, but I don’t know where to bring it. I’ve actually thought about having a manager again. Just to clear my head and have a plan. ….Eh, it’s not that attractive to have a plan. I know that if I ever feel that I need to make a funny movie, I’ll figure out how to write one. I’ll get it done. If I ever get some ambition, I’m gonna get some sh*t done.”
