- Mike, how were you detstveN
- In high school I was very, very shy. Basically this is another of my childhood. Once I drank someone else's pee, they told me it was lemonade "Mountain Dew". Since that day, I can not drink the "Dew" and if I pass the machine with the lemonade, I sweat. This I got from this shock. I almost did not do anything. I myself was the target of attacks.
. - At what point did you come up with these absurd zubyN
. - We did fake TV commercials for Saturday Night Live (the show, which Myers has long waged on TV), which was called "The British toothpaste made entirely without sugar"
. Everyone in advertising had bad teeth, and the slogan was: "You do not need to brush your teeth every day."
- How do you lured to his film MadonnuN
- Let's define the word "lured". We're just good friends. I always wanted to say it (chuckles) and I said it! I met Madonna on Saturday Night Live. We filmed episode of "Wayne's World", and my wife was informally acquainted with her, knew her friends. Then her company Maverick Record recorded the soundtrack to Warner Brothers, and there was a song that is very consistent with the 60 th year and was very psychedelic - Beautiful Stranger, and I thought that it would be perfect for my film. There is a bit from the 60's and 90's, and this is a very good song. So then I made a video.
- What is the reaction of this Bond, Sean Connery, in your film - better, perhaps, a parody of bondianuN you ever met egoN
- I met with Sean Connery. I heard, . that he liked the "Austin Powers", . than I can boast, . because it (shrugs, . widely prying apart his arms), Sean Connery! I was in Cannes, and there met Sean Connery, . and I am very shy man, . which at times can be sociable,
. And so I met him, and he said something like: "How do you like Cannes, starikN". I was so scared that he could only say "Hello". So. "So you're here for a couple of denkovN" - asked me on Connery. And I say: "Yes". I could have talked with him for several hours, and I looked like an idiot, a real idiot. And I went to popyatu
- I feel that your father - the reason that you are doing comedy. How does it impact on the va
- This is one hundred percent true. I think that all gay in Liverpool. In particular, I realized this when I went to my uncles and aunts. My parents were not poor, but they were of "Down Middle-Class" (literally "bottom of the middle class"). In Liverpool, the only thing that holds people - his own body. So people are either very sexy or very happy, or play the guitar. My cousins could all. My father valued the three things that are undervalued by society. The first: to know that everything will be fine. "All right, let's calm down". Second: to appreciate the stupidity. "Let's have fun". If someone would meet to write a book about my father, it would be folly praise. He thought that it underestimated the stupidity. He was very, very stupid. I'm a stupid grown up and I see the price of stupidity. The life itself confirms this. And finally, my father liked to say: "I - not my job," People in Canada, asked my father what he did for living, and he hated that question because it was selling encyclopedia. And he answered: "Not your business" (Mike imitates the strong British accent). So every time he invented a new occupation. This could be improvised for an hour or two: he was the Ambassador of Guatemala, then played the bongos in "Mission Impossible", then worked for gypsum mine. All the time something unfathomable. And this kind of nonsense to me greatly influenced.
- You grew up in Canada, but you probably strongly influenced by British traditsiiN
- Oh, yes. My parents moved to Canada in 1956 from Liverpool, but there is no such ardent Englishman, as one who no longer lives in England. Our house was a place of worship throughout the British. My dad would wake my two older brothers, Peter and Paul, and I was sleeping all together on one couch, and drink tea with infinitely many toasts. We watched British shows and movies with Peter Sellers, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore. Well, James Bond movies, of course. Therefore, the "Austin Powers 2" - a tribute to my father for introducing me at an early age with all the British comedies.
- What has changed in your career after the death ottsaN
- It was hard. The extent to which my father was getting worse because of illness, in proportion to how moved my career. That's why I took a breather. I'm very accustomed to come to visit my mom and dad, tell them what happened a week. When he died, I realized that to do things that tells you the heart. I do not make any plans. If I want to do something very commercial, I will not do it with an English guy with bad teeth and covered with hair, chest. In this you can be sure ...
- And how your mother influenced your zhiznN
- My father was doing and saying ridiculous things -. My mom Banny also very funny and eccentric. My mom does not keep internal monologues, she can say whatever comes into her head. She may go by car and suddenly say (female voice, imitating his mother's British accent): "You know, the ants do not like cucumbers". And to me that remains: "Termites do not like cinnamon". She told of strange and weird things. I said to her: "Mom, you like cheese, and she told me:" You know, Rembrandt, ruler of the world ". Here it is the influence of my mother. (At this time the phone rings his agent.) This is my mom calls. Tell her that the ants like cucumbers.
- It's true that you met his wife when she got hockey shaybaN
- No, it is somewhat more complicated story. First, I'm a big fan of hockey. I'm from Toronto and I specifically go somewhere, just to see the game "Toronto Maple Leafs". And so I went to Chicago to see the game "Toronto". That night, I got the puck. In mathematical terms the likelihood that you will get the puck, is practically zero. Hit me! That same evening I met my future wife, and because I was terribly shy, the only thing I thought of to say was: "As I hit the puck!". I do not think that I liked it. And three days later, during the same vacation, I again met her ... Well, blah blah blah (laughs). We immediately gathered that abnormal and surprising. Three years later, we went to Boston to see how the Leafs played against the "Bruins" and now the puck hit it. Shortly thereafter, in 1993, we were married. Here's how hockey puck affect my personal life
- You worked with your wife, Robin. How it to you vliyaetN
- My wife is really very, very clever and very funny. She has zero sensitivity to my eccentricities, which, I believe, paid off my tolerance for eccentricity of my mother. My wife knows people. I call it a human engineer. With it, people behave naturally, naturally. You meet Robin and ten minutes later confess all their crimes. I have seen this happen (laughs). We rode the bus, and suddenly someone shouted from behind my wife: "I once robbed a bank". She understands people. We will be somewhere, and I'll say about someone: "My God, she hates me, and Robin tells me:" She does not hate you, go and wish her happy birthday ". I chtoN I'll go and congratulate and hear in reply: "Oh, thank you, I thought I was no longer sent birthday greetings". Robin simply knows at some level, the path to the heart.
- You and Robin of different faiths. This meshaetN
- I am a Canadian Protestants of English descent. My wife - an American Jewish Russian-Polish origin. For us, it became clear that, despite the different roots, we must have identical values of life. Surprisingly, we are like. However, we are far from the policy ...
- What if you have ideas for the next proektaN
- Hello, what did you say "draft", because I always say, and all laughing at me. I say: "Sorry, I do not work on the project. I am working on a process ". (He laughs). ... I do not know. I want to take a vacation. I think Robin and I go to Canada to see the game "Toronto". I want to go, because for the first time since 1967 they have a real chance to win the Stanley Cup. Then again, life will score the key. All my ideas now on vacation. I think that is exactly what I'm going to do. My thoughts now, forgive me (smiles), the planes at the airport, and wait until some of them landed.
- What are your hopes for the new tysyacheletieN
- I wish that people were stupid. I think that stupidity is very important. People need to feel better. This is one big step that will solve all the remaining 100 steps, I think.
