“I had become an actor because real life was hard for me.
Sometimes it was really rough. Acting was different from
real life, yet it gave me the chance to search for complex
stories that helped me understand and cope with what I
encountered away from the stage lights.”
Legendary actor Nick Nolte delivers his most revealing
performance yet. This intimate memoir is a tale of art,
passion, commitment, addiction, and the quest for personal
enlightenment as intense and hypnotic as the man himself.
In a career spanning five decades and hundreds of roles,
Nick Nolte has become a true Hollywood icon. Rising from a
difficult childhood in the rural Midwest to leading roles
and a trio of Oscar nominations in the golden West, he has
been both celebrated and vilified; survived marriages,
divorces, and a string of romances; was named the “Sexiest
Man Alive” by People magazine; and suffered public
humiliation over his addiction issues, including a
drug-fueled trip down the Pacific Coast Highway that
resulted in his infamous arrest.
Despite these ups and downs, Nolte has remained true to the
craft he loves, portraying a diverse range of characters
with his trademark physicality and indelible gravelly voice.
Already thirty-five when his performance in the 1976
miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man launched him to stardom, Nolte
never learned to play by Hollywood’s rules. A rebel who
defies expectations, a committed actor willing to go to
extremes for a role, Nolte is motivated by personal, edgy
projects, not box office success. Today, he has found peace
on his own terms, yet is still driven, juggling projects
while raising his young daughter.
Nick’s untold story, with never-before-seen photos, offers a
candid, unvarnished close-up look at the man, the career,
the loves, and the life.
