just when I thought I couldn't love tom waits any more

From the 1999 Mojo interview:

Tell me about the "perverted doctor" you play in the forthcoming film Mystery Men.

Perverted? I don't know. There's a scene with a woman in her nineties at a rest home where we watch television and I make advances, but I wouldn't necessarily call that perverted. Dr. Hiller likes older women, and I guess it's just so radically different from the Hollywood cycle of older men with younger women. What's really perverted is these old-timers going and picking up these young gals. I respect maturity and longevity.

Sigh. Flutter.
