Throughout it all, Murray has maintained a healthy contempt for the phoniness of the showbiz world around him and has always [...]
If you like Bill Murray then you'll love his recent interview with PBS's Charlie Rose, which is an hour long and spans subjects like Monuments Men, science, living in South Carolina, his inability to quit acting, Lost In Translation, his never-heard Oscars acceptance speech, and some very candid views on life, including the great piece of advice to, as Murray puts it, say yes to life and be alert and available: "We're living this life, we're in this life, and if you're not available, ordinary time goes past and you didn't live it — the day passes and you didn't live it.
