Une histoire orale du meilleur film de tous les temps à lire sur The Ringer.
Morceaux choisis :
James Cameron: I could see John listening to this, even though he’s running around in a Public Enemy shirt.
Edward Furlong: When I was 13, I had no idea what I was fucking listening to. I liked rock, but then I’d listen to Slick Rick. I’ve come to appreciate Guns N’ Roses.
Arnold Schwarzenegger: [Stan Winston] subsequently directed the music video with Guns N’ Roses.
Cameron: Arnold and Stan Winston got to be really, really good friends on that film. And then the three of us became this midlife crisis motorcycle club after that. We’d go out and ride our Harleys every Sunday.
William Wisher: Linda Hamilton has a twin sister and she was used in one of the shots as Sarah; so they’re both in the same frame.
Linda Hamilton (to EW): They were going to use a process shot for the double, but they flew Leslie in and were delighted. We were shooting in freezing temperatures in a steel mill, and they had to wet us down. Leslie got a glimpse of how tough it can be to do this stuff.
Wisher: It’s a lot simpler than having ILM go create you a CG Sarah.
Schwarzenegger: He was just so opposite, right? I was big, he was lean. I was powerful, he was fast. I had basic technology that we had in the first movie. What this guy had was sophisticated abilities.
Cameron: I dallied briefly with Billy Idol in that role (of the T-1000) because I thought he had a really interesting look and presence. I can’t say, sitting here years out, that I would’ve actually followed through with that, but it was something we were discussing. It got taken off the table when Billy had a bad motorcycle crash.
Joe Morton (Cyberdyne Systems computer scientist Miles Dyson): One of the questions that James asked me was, “Why do you want this role?” And I said, “Because of a joke that Richard Pryor told.” And he said, “What’s that?” And I said, “Well, Richard Pryor said that the reason Hollywood either kills off the Black actors in sci-fi or they’re not in it at all is because Hollywood doesn’t think we’re gonna be here in the future.” He laughed, and I think I got a call that night.
