Why Does Ron Howard Not Watch His Hit Films?

While speaking to People, Ron said, “Frankly, I don’t go back and watch my movies, so it’s been a long time since I’ve seen ‘Splash’.” Ron further spoke about his 1984 comedy Splash which starred Daryl Hannah as a mermaid discovered by Tom Hanks. He said, “Making the movie was so much fun. We just laughed every day. It was such a buoyant, romantic, funny combination of story values and situations.”

Ron Howard was in the news earlier when he spoke about Will Smith's altercation with comedian Chris Rock at Oscars. According to Deadline, Howard stated, "These are people I’m very friendly with and I was shocked. I wouldn’t have expected this kind of behaviour." He continued," I’m not on the Academy board and I can’t speak for their process but I do know them and they will be very, very thoughtful. I will be curious to see what sort of decisions they make.”


Howard's longtime collaborator Brian Grazer also shared his thoughts on the altercation, calling it an 'unfortunate' detraction from the main event. "I produced the Oscars one year and I think it’s a celebration to the artists… and it should only focus on that,” he mentioned and added, "It’s unfortunate it detracted from that."
