Freddy Got Fingered

Freddy Got Fingered

I got to interview my hero Tom Green about his masterpiece, which turns 20 today, for the Film Stage. We went in deep.

“I’m glad I was born when I was. Super happy to be the age that I am, you know? I’m 49 years old. I love being 49. I wouldn’t want to be 20 years old right now. No offense to anyone who’s 20. But I feel great. I’m doing what I love; I’m in control of my life. It’s nice. I was so stressed-out when I was growing up. You get a lot less stressed when you get older because there’s so much less of your life left to ruin. You know? I’m not terrified about the future—because there’s so very little of it left. You kind of got to enjoy every day for what it is now. Not get totally wrapped up in stuff. So that’s good.”
