Interviewer: What were the highlights of your life?
Jack: The first screening of Easy Rider in Cannes, because I had been there before sneaking around. When I was sitting in the screening I realized that I was actually going to be a movie star. When I was over there I was pretty much already thinking about directing because I had been doing movies for 10 or 12 years by then. And everybody said I was good, but being known and not having a big film success is almost tougher than being completely new. It just kind of turned my life around and was definitely a highlight.
Interviewer: Do you ever get that same buzz now?
Jack: When they say I’m a great actor, I close my ears because it’s not good for you to think that way.
Interviewer: You seem pretty confident though.
Jack: Well, you know, I put on a good show.
