Why is Chevy Chase such a dick?
He has really presented himself as an unlikeable douchebag over the past decade. And here in an interview with Huffington Post UK, he continues to:
On working on Community:
The hours are hideous, and it’s still a sitcom on television, which is probably the lowest form of television. That’s my feeling about it. I think the reason I have stuck around is because I love these kids, the cast - they are very good. It’s not like I am working with the great innovators of all time, but at the same time, they are my friends.
On the other hand… he was supposed to be FORREST GUMP? Holy crap.
That’s a hard thing to answer. I turned down Forrest Gump, I turned down American Gigolo, there are many films - like Ghostbusters - that I turned down… the first one I did was Foul Play with Goldie Hawn, but I turned down Animal House - I turned that down. So all those I regret only because they made huge amounts of money and I would be very wealthy, but I don’t regret working with Goldie, I don’t regret the projects that I did do. And at the time, I felt like I had lived Animal House, I had been to college and high school, and believe me, Animal House didn’t come close to some of the things I was doing! That’s the way I looked at it, rather than as an intelligent businessman. I’m not that way, I’m not very good about judging according to the pay.
