The Philosophy of Bob Evans


Above: Oily hustler, "John," veteran player, A-List studio head, kiss stealing bandit, pal of Kissinger, Californicator -- the glorious Robert Evans, Hollywood Survivor (via reel)

We huff on over to the Huffington Post to see a verbatim transcript of this year's Lowell Lecture (Averted Gaze), given by the notable cineaste, bon vivant, producer (We still don't know what the act of "Producing" actually entails, either) and philosophe, Robert Evans. We are almost positive he is talking here about thousand dollar a night "escorts":


"Try a thing you haven't done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And the third time, to figure out whether you like it or not."

But you will be charged extra for anything beyond that. And nothing kinky.

"Have they treated me a bit harshly at times? Oh, yes! But they've made my life one of wealth, wealth of discovery."

A "wealth" no doubt left on the bureau by the bed in the form of sweaty crumpled c-notes.

"Ain't that what life is all about?"

You ... do your thing Bob Evans, you (Enthusiasm wanes) .. do your thing.
