Vestea bună e că vine și la noi, pe 25 noiembrie.
Vestea și mai bună este textul scris de Depp pentru Newsweek, în care actorul ne împărtășește câteva din amintirile lui cu Hunter S. Thompson.
Cum l-a întâlnit:
He invited me back to his house that night at about 2 or 2:30 in the morning, and I noticed this beautiful nickel-plated 12-gauge shotgun on his wall. I was raised around weapons all my life, being from Kentucky, so I said, “Wow, that’s a really good-looking 12-gauge.” And he said, “Would you like to fire it?” And I said, “Yeah, sure, I’ll fire it.” And he said, “Shit, man, we must build a bomb!” So we built this bomb (…). I feel like that was my test, my rite of passage.
Despre ce însemna prietenia cu Hunter S. Thmpson:
You’d get a phone call at 3 a.m., and he used to call me “Colonel Depp,” because he made me a Kentucky colonel, and he’d say, “Colonel, what do you know of black-hairy-tongue disease?”
Sau despre cum era autorul american în intimitate:
The things people know and believe about Hunter—his savage approach to life and this irreverent, beautiful, poetic demeanor—is all true. But when I was with him at his house, just sitting in his kitchen bullshitting and watching sports, he was a very gentle guy.
Ori despre legătura lui cu Depp:
He knew I worshiped him, and I know that he loved me, so he may have been part father figure, part mentor, but I’d say the closest thing is brothers. We were like brothers.
Tot din categoria textelor despre Thompson care apar mulțumită campaniei de promovare a filmului este și acesta, în care autorul povestește despre cum ii place să-și micul dejun. Și ce mic dejun:
… four Bloody Marys, two grapefruits, a pot of coffee, Rangoon crêpes, a half-pound of either sausage, bacon, or corned-beef hash with diced chilies, a Spanish omelette or eggs Benedict, a quart of milk, a chopped lemon for random seasoning, and something like a slice of key lime pie, two margaritas and six lines of the best cocaine for dessert…
Fun. Pana ajunge filmul la noi, va lasam cu trailerul de la Breakfast with Hunter, documentarul din 2003 în care îl vedem pe Thompson gătindu-și o mică parte din uriașul mic dejun:
