Joe Eszterhas interview

Legendary screenwriter Joe Eszterhas talks to Susan Dominus in The Telegraph about his new book, The Devil's Guide to Hollywood: The Screenwriter as God!.
'I think there are all these phonies out there who don't know what they're talking about giving screenwriters advice,' says Eszterhas, his hands on his knees as he sits on the couch facing the big-screen television where he and his sons like to watch basketball.

'I've learnt a lot over the course of 30 years, and I wanted to encourage screenwriters to really take seriously what they write, not just to sell out and take the money, but to put their hearts and guts behind it to write a book that would be funny and inspirational and tell the truth about what it's really like.'
