Interview: Martin Sheen

1 November 2001 8:41 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Martin Sheen tells John Patterson what the new scenes add to the movie that nearly took his life

"Hi, I'm Martin," he says, a little superfluously, as he extends his hand. These days the face still offers echoes of the beauty it had when its owner was a young man, still intact when he made Apocalypse Now. Time, gravity and experience have since combined to fill it out, but the 60-year-old version is still alert and expressive, and as reassuring as a president's face should be. His physique was always lean and compact, and even now that he's filled out a little, he still emits a sense of controlled, coiled strength.

It 's tempting to probe Sheen about The West Wing, and about Terrence Malick's Badlands ("that and Apocalypse are my own favourites"), Catch-22, and his work with David Cronenberg and dissident American documentarist Emile de Antonio. But we're »

Brando Acts Wacko At Jacko's Bash

11 September 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Giant movie legend Marlon Brando shocked the audience at Michael Jackson's 30th anniversary bash - by getting up on stage and talking nonsense. The heavyweight Godfather star was a guest of honor at the concert in New York's Madison Square Garden, but even Jackson was left bemused when the actor began to speak. After taking a seat, Brando introduced himself saying, "You may be thinking, who is that old fat fart sitting there?" He then enlightened the packed crowd by removing his watch and informing them, "In the last minute, 100,000 children have been hacked to death with a machete." The 77-year-old Oscar-winner - who played a madman in 1979 hit film Apocalypse Now - was eventually booed off the stage after rambling on for 10 minutes. »

Roman Coppola Grateful For Family Connections

17 August 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Roman Coppola is grateful for being a member of such a famous family because it helped when he made his first film. Coppola is the son of Apocalypse Now director Francis Ford Coppola and brother of Sofia Coppola, who helmed The Virgin Suicides. Roman's first film, CQ, screened at the Edinburgh Film Festival this month. He said, "To me it's just a help, I've always been so proud to be connected to my family. I've always been involved in projects, I've helped on dad's movies, and he was one of the producers in this movie." Roman says his father offered him advice while he was making CQ, "Dad wasn't present during the film-making, but during the casting and editing he'd give his opinion of things. The biggest thing was that his company got the money together to make this movie." CQ stars Jeremy Davies and Gerard Depardieu. Roman says he always wanted to have an international cast. »

Martin Sheen: I Hate Most Of My Films

14 February 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie legend Martin Sheen is embarrassed by most of the movies he's done - which he only accepted for the money. Sheen, who aspired to be an actor from the age of seven, has admitted he's proud of only a few of his films, such as Gandhi and Apocalypse Now. He says, "Some days, I'm glad from the depth of my soul that I'm an actor because it meant my salvation but on others, my God, I wish anything else. "In America we predicate talent on success. And if you're not successful at any given moment, or do a bad film because you need the money, you pay for it. I did 80 per cent of my work for money and it was embarrassing. I can only count on one hand the films I'm proud of." »
