Los Angeles, Feb 21 (IANS) Hollywood veteran Al Pacino doesnt like to remember the 1970s because it was “a dark period” of his life.
Pacino forayed into the digital space with “Hunters”, a series about vigilantes seeking to bring justice to Nazis hiding in 1970s in the US.
Asked if doing the show took him back to the era, Pacino said: “Nothing takes me back to the ‘70s, no. I just can’t go back there. No. I’m, I’m in the ‘70s right now as I speak to you, and there’s no ‘70s costumes going on. It’s a dark period of my life. It was very fruitful for – you know, I was in very good movies at the time, and lots happened to me. But there’s something dark about where I was at, at that time. I was a little bit more, I think getting, you know, taking drugs and drinking and all that in the 1970s. It was a bit, a little over the top,” he added.
