QUOTES FROM THIS 'LARRY KING NOW' INTERVIEW WITH STEVE-O:
*Posted Online on Ora.TV on March 18th 2016:
“What I’m guilty of goes way beyond my animal rights activity. Um, i’m guilty of being an alcoholic, and a drug addict, an attention whore, many things for which I work pretty hard to avoid doing.”–Steve-O on why he called his comedy special ‘Guilty as Charged.’
“[‘Jackass’] started out as a skateboarding magazine which was largely devoted to being naughty. The people who started the MTV franchise started with a skateboarding magazine. The magazine was very irreverent, naughty and shocking. .” –Steve-O on how ‘Jackass’ started.
“The skateboarding was kind of a thin veil to serve as a form of filth. [The magazine] was famous enough and filthy enough that famous pornographer Larry Flynt bought it out. He was publishing 27 pornography magazines and one skateboarding magazine.” –Steve-O on how ‘Jackass’ magazine’s popularity grew.
“Ringling and Barnum Bailey Clown College in Sarasota, Florida, that’s where I was when my first coverage in the skateboarding magazine, which was called ‘Big Brother,’ came out.” –Steve-O on clown college and his first coverage in ‘Jackass.’
“Frankly, [I do these things] because I’m an attention whore. I suppose if I started out with a more natural skill set I would have looked for those ways.”–Steve-O on why he hurts himself doing stunts.
