John Cusack says Hollywood is obsessed with everything

John Cusack: 'Hollywood Is Obsessed With Everything'
Posted Wednesday 04 November 03:44 PM By: Jenna Busch
PopEater was able to catch John Cusack as he walked the red carpet at the '2012' premiere last night in downtown Los Angeles. Cusack plays Jackson Curtis, a novelist/limo driver who must save his family from the end of the world. He told us whether or not he believes in the 2012 prophecy, whether or not he got injured during filming and how he's taking a hint from the "green set" and reducing his carbon footprint.
So when did you first hear about the prophecy? "Oh, I heard about it a bunch of times."And do you believe it?"Uh, I think it's more like a shift in consciousness."Why do you think Hollywood is so obsessed with disaster movies?"Hollywood is obsessed with everything! It was a really fun movie to make. Sometimes, physically it gets a little hard."Was there a lot of training involved?"Sometimes when you're doing some of the physical things, you know, on a hundred day shoot, you have to take care of your hamstrings and stuff."Did you get injured during filming?"I got injured sometimes. You can't keep your body warm for twelve hours a day."We recently learned that this film set was actively trying to be carbon neutral and completely green. "Yeah!"Is there anything you do in your personal life to keep down the carbon emissions?"I do some stuff around the house. I haven't been able to...get off the grid yet. I recycle and I try to conserve energy at home and stuff. But I'm still only about 30-40 percent."
