“All the non-stop work got crazy,” he says. “About four years ago I was shooting the last scene for Point Break in Hawaii. Four days later I was in Portland to start My Own Priavate Idaho. My energy was lagging, my heart was sagging. Man, I was beat. Didn’t think I could get through it. But the spirit of Gus Van Sant, a brilliant director and River Phoenix, a brilliant actor, drew me back into the fire. The creative spontaneity on the set reminded me what this process should be about - invention and discovery. I was disappointed in my performance. It was Gus and River who were incredible. River was a remarkable artist and a rare human being. I miss him every day.”
