He's basically telling people that he's not interested in talking about 30 year old news. What some people found out or heard about 5-10 years ago is 30 year old news to him. There are just as many people who would say "grow the F up" had he come out talking about arguments & little spats & old drama that happened 25-30 years ago?!
He has no interest in talking about something he either doesn't really remember or just stopped caring about or maybe just was not really too important to him to store it in his memory banks for years & years's but he's somehow wrong for that?
He doesn't owe anybody a thing. He made movies & people chose to go or not to go see them & not only did people choose to see them but they loved the movies they love as it's now apart of peoples daily lives almost....And he owes people something for that??
It's a pretty selfish way of thinking to be honest. The minute somebody doesn't do what the "fans" want him to do, it's "grow up" "embrace the fans who put you where you are" "he's saying he doesn't give two shits about his fans" Actually no, he's saying exactly what he's saying in that he has no interest in taking part.
It's the fans that need to say thank you, not him to us. It's the fans that need to grow up, desperately wanting more & more & the minute he doesn't feel like it, some are so quick to turn sour on an almost 70 year old man who's not only talked about it more than he cared for (for us) but is somehow wrong or unappreciative when he chooses not to do something that a very small % of people on planet earth want him to do..It's some of us who should grow up & appreciate what he has given us instead of crying about what he hasn't given us or think he owes us. We need to say thank you & let him live out life the way he wants to without some 20 something snotty little kid acting like he owes anyone anything.
you said it better than i did..
