To follow up on the recent post about film critic Roger Ebert, he wrote this week about his reactions to the Esquire story and how shocked he was to see the portrait that has gotten so much attention. "I got a jolt from the full-page photograph of my jaw drooping. Not a lovely sight. But then I am not a lovely sight, and in a moment I thought, well, what the hell. It's just as well it's out there. That's how I look, after all." He didn't care much for the magazine framing his current life as dying in increments, but he liked the piece. Also, the article's writer, Chris Jones, talks here about his experience with Ebert.
