“I dunno how many movies I played, is it 250 or 200, I lost a count a long time ago”, says our very own actor Harry Dean Stanton.
In an interview with Favorwire, the actor reveals that he is not sure of the number of movies he has acted in. It may be that he is just too old to remember. Or perhaps he just doesn’t care about the count. According to IMDB, he has played 184 movies until now.
In the same interview he recalls the early days when he fell in love with Rebecca DeMornay back in 1980s. Among all the girls he dated, this one lasted for a comparatively long. “She left with Tom Cruise.” She’d made a film with him called Risky Business. “I was heartbroken,” he recalls with a gloom. He also adds that he misses her.
Harry, despite being 89 years of age, has never gotten married. Perhaps because the love of his life left him?? But we’ll get back to that in a while.
