– You crashed a plane,
and–and it was a– – The plane crashed.
I was aboard the plane… – I see.
– And it crashed. I didn’t–
– But you– but you were the only one
on the plane. – I was the only one
on the the plane. – Okay, so, somehow
the plane–what happened? – The plane had
a mechanical malfunction. – So when it starts
going down– and it–and you were on
a golf course which, you know,
lots of doctors. – Well, I wasn’t on
a golf course. – I was–
I was near a golf– I was near the airport,
and there happened to be a golf course there,
but there happened to be a lot of
other places that were not as attractive
landing sites– – Sure.
– As the golf course. I would have preferred
to land on the airport. – So you chose a golf course,
’cause doctors are there usually, so that would be
a good place to land. – That wasn’t–
I didn’t– I didn’t construct
such a complete understanding of the situation. I just landed
on the golf course, and there were doctors there.
– Yeah. Who probably should have been
at work. It was a Friday afternoon.
– Yeah. Thank God they weren’t.
They were there to help you. And then what happened?
What were the injuries? – Uh, they were, uh, uh–
a dislocated right ankle, and, uh,
a shattered pelvis, and a, uh, broken back, and a, uh,
serious bump on the head, with a major laceration.
– Wow. So–so, were you conscience? Other than that–nothing.
– Other than–okay. Other than that, you were good.
– Yeah. So, you flew me
in a helicopter, um– – Yes.
– And I saw that crash, and I was like, “Oh, boy.”
Um. [laughter] – ‘Cause you had flown–
and it was when you were shooting
“Six Days Seven Nights.” – That was like 12 years ago.
– I know. – So I had–12, yeah. – But you–we were so close
to the water, I remember when you were flying,
I was like, We’re so close
to the water. And then some body just told me
that you didn’t even have your license then. [laughter] – Actually, I told the guy
who I talked to, one of your producers
yesterday, I said, “I don’t know
what they were doing in the helicopter.
I didn’t even have a license.” [laughter] But I was a student.
Uh, I was– And uh, there was–
there was, you know, another pilot there. – Yeah, but you insisted
on flying. I reme–anyway, anyway. It was–it was, uh,
quite something. And when I saw the crash,
I was like, boy– ’cause I was–
I was nervous. But you are
a good pilot. And you do have your license,
and you are flying again. And I’m sure
Calista is thrilled about that. She must be so happy
you’re back in a plane. [laughter] – No.
– Yes, yes. – She fine–
she’s fine with it. Actually, she’s very supportive. She knows how much it–
it means to me. And she’s–
she’s, um–she’s okay. We–I fly her all the time
in our, you know, airplane. – In a new plane.
– In a newer plane. – Yeah, yeah, that would be–
that would be good.
