The Talks: Mr. Walken, has anybody told you lately that you have great hair?

Christopher Walken: You know, it’s funny you say that because the lady who sold me a movie ticket in New York recently said, “You’ve got great hair!” It’s funny to have a stranger say to you, “Here’s your ticket. Wow, you’ve got really good hair.”

TT: But you’ve always been into your hair, haven’t you?

CW: Yeah and I’ve always had good hair.

TT: What do you do to keep fit?

CW: I exercise everyday. I have a treadmill and I do that 7 days a week. I do 2 miles and I watch Charlie Rose.

TT: What’s the secret to maintaining a youthful attitude?

CW: Well, just trying. It comes and goes. Green tea. I mean, my wife, I have a wife of almost 50 years, and I have a feeling that she looks after me a little bit like I was 7 years old. I don’t have kids. Maybe that has kept me young.
