At the end of last month, an interview with classic Harold and Maude star Bud Cort popped up on the Austin American-Statesman. It's rather ... biting -- and not because it was a discussion over breakfast. From the get-go, you can tell that interviewer Chris Garcia wasn't happy with the whole experience, in a way that brings to mind Steve Buscemi's take on the matter in Interview. I get the feeling that Garcia never wanted this interview, and that Cort picked up on it right away.

The interview, as Wiley Wiggins pointed out in his blog, is definitely lacking in "meaningful content." Words used to describe Cort throughout the piece range from "picky and precise," to his clothing being "a snazzy shade of melancholy," to "A wounded ego is a big ego. Cort emanates an air of entitlement born of bad luck or bad choices or whatever it is that makes Hollywood such a torture chamber of heartache, anger and rejection." On the one hand, it seems like Garcia was shot down when he tried to navigate any path with the actor, but on the other, Cort doesn't seem to have been given much to work with -- unlike, say, this interview with DVDTalk.
