Steven Spielberg | Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Interview
 


NICKELODEON MAGAZINE INTERVIEWS
STEVEN SPIELBERG
We interviewed Steven Spielberg, the director of all four Indiana Jones movies.

 
 

NICK MAGAZINE: What’s the funniest thing that happened on the set of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?
STEVEN SPIELBERG:
Watching my villains become really nice, regular people the moment I called “Cut.” I was always laughing when Cate Blanchett, who plays our übervillain Irina Spalko, would play with her kids or talk to friends on her phone—but still be in costume looking like a villain.

NICK MAGAZINE: When did you have your first cool idea for a movie?

 
  STEVEN SPIELBERG: Probably when I was about 12. I was a Boy Scout and I was trying to get a merit badge in photography. My dad’s still camera was broken, so I asked the scoutmaster if I could tell a story with my father’s movie camera. He said yes, and I got an idea to do a Western. I made it and got my merit badge. That was how it all started.

 

 
 


 

 

NICK MAGAZINE: What’s your favorite way to watch a movie?
STEVEN SPIELBERG: I love to go to a regular movie theater, especially when the movie is a big crowd-pleaser. It’s much better watching a movie with 500 people making noise than with just a dozen.
