Things I've Said, but Probably Shouldn't Have
An Unrepentant MemoirBook - 2007
People love reading about red carpet regulars, and Dern doesn't disappoint. He writes candidly and unforgettably about working with Alfred Hitchcock, John Frankenheimer, Claude Chabrol, Jack Nicholson, Paul Newman, Bob Dylan, Matt Damon, Charlize Theron, Jane Fonda, John Wayne, and many more. Readers will discover why he turned down potentially career-making roles in The Godfather , Marathon Man , and Gandhi ; why his prestigious family disowned him over a typo in the New York Times ; and why, after he was already famous, he agreed to star in The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant , the second best two-headed transplant movie of 1971.
As Dern's career moves full steam ahead in the HBO series Big Love and Astronaut Farmer (his forthcoming film with Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton), Things I've Said, but Probably Shouldn't Have is the book not just Dern fans and Hollywood enthusiasts will be talking about this season.
