Bill Murray is a notoriously private and quiet kind of guy, so I was surprised to see how much he opened up to Esquire editor Scott Raab. It’s not a super long interview but enjoyable. Murray apparently had met Moonrise Kingdom co-star Bruce Willis once a while ago:
I met him at this Andy Garcia movie I did, The Lost City. Willis is there and he’d had a couple drinks. We’ve all had a few drinks. And he says, “I just want you to know …” I’m like, “Oh, fuck.” He says, “I used to work as a page at NBC, and my job was to refill the M&M bowls and the peanut bowls in the actors’ dressing room. And only you and Gilda ever treated me like a human being. You were nice to me.” And I thought, Whew, that’s good. I felt like, Shit, I did somethin’ right, you know?
