I don`t particularly like to do anything dangerous. And here I was in Bangkok (filming The Deer Hunter (1978)). I was in the jungle and in the mountains. Being an actor has taken me places that I never would have gone to . . . It`s been a very interesting life.

 

What I do has a lot to do with the words. My favorite thing is to have two scripts at the same time, and study them simultaneously in the kitchen. Go over the words, over and over, do them different ways, different inflections and rhythms. For me, rhythm is very important. I think we express ourselves as much with rhythm as with the words. It`s not what you say, it`s how you say it. I think it`s very true. If you start to say your lines and it sounds right, usually I stick with that. If it sounds right, it probably is right. It`s curious, how you`re not collaborating with anyone at that point, and by the time you get there with other actors on the set, usually what you`ve done at home makes sense, and it`s acceptable to everybody. The thing I have trouble with, because I`m so dependent on knowing my lines, is that if suddenly somebody says, Here`s a big speech. You`re going to do that instead," I get lost. At that point, I understand why Marlon Brando loves cue cards." - On how he memorizes his lines and mentally prepares himself for each role.

marcus28 - Congratulations on your new film, Jersey Boys (2014), Christopher Walken. This film opens in movie theaters on Friday June 20,2014 (6 months ago)
Kate Smith - Walken has been married to his wife Georgianne for for 45 years since he was 26. They seem to both be very commited to work and happy with each other. I have myself read unsubstantiated rumours about the affairs with Tinkerbelle (Warhol Superstar) and Natalie Wood. Also I read once online that him and Meryl Streep have had a long term affair on and off over the years. Maybe some of the above is true but for the most part Chris Walken seems to be a pretty quiet guy so people like to make things up about him. He is a bit of a workaholic and it seems to me that once he made his commitment to Georgieanne he kept to that. He says in real life he is a cautious man so perhaps he isn't the sort to have affiars or sleep around. If he has done, then his wife must have turned a blind eye to it knowing his commitment was always to her. (7 months ago)
