Matt Dillon Can't Stand Watching His Old Movies


Matt Dillon


The 45-year-old actor claims watching his breakthrough performance in his early movies is awkward because seeing himself as a kid feels like seeing a stranger.

Matt Dillon finds it strange watching his breakthrough performance in 1983 movie "The Outsiders", because he was barely even an adult when he filmed the scenes. Dillon was 18 when he shot his part as a young troublemaker in the film, which also launched the careers of Tom Cruise and Patrick Swayze.

And the 45 year old struggles to comprehend he ever starred in the movie, as it seems a lifetime ago. He tells Total Film magazine, "It's actually very weird for me to see those films now. And the further I get away from them the stranger it is because I was a f**king kid, man, a little kid."

"Although in my mind at the time I wasn't. When I made 'The Outsiders', I think I had just turned 18. C. Thomas Howell and I were the youngest guys on that movie."

But Dillon is grateful he was cast in the film, as it gave him the opportunity to work with some of Hollywood's greats. He adds, "Just working with Francis (Ford Coppola). When I found out I got the job, it was one of the greatest days of my life. Francis was a real legend."
