Interviewer: Make it not sarcastic John!
John: That’s so difficult!
Interviewer: I know!
John: Really, the message I’d like to give is “Of the seven sins, gluttony is the best to have.”
John Belushi interview with Norm Winer
I like film making if its just film making and not doing Saturday Night Live and being the night manager at Burger King at the same time. I was always doing three things at the same time.
Interviewer: Can you tell me about a past life that had the most impact on this last one?
John: Hmm. Seriously?
Jamie (to John): Yes, seriously. It’s a real question.
Interviewer: Oh no.
Jamie (laughing hard): John, we’re being serious.
John: Okay, I’m being serious. I was a monkey.
John: basically, I was a mischievous asshole monkey who would just get drunk and pass out. That was my life. I think that influenced my life the most.
