Dan Aykroyd on the City That Never Blinks

GhostbustersStillIf Dan Aykroyd had partied the night before his British GQ interview with a vodka brand other than the one he is responsible for, his answers would likely have been groggier. But as he explains to Aice Howarth, there’s no hangover from Crystal Head because he’s cut out the glyceride.

The actor also had a great answer when asked for some of his fondest memories from the Ghostbusters shoot:

“I always remember walking down Madison Avenue in the full Ghostbusters costumes and stealing shots with the crowds, in other words not filing a permit to shoot in New York but just going in and getting the shots but people’s reactions were so funny.”

“First they looked at us, you know, with the packs and everything, and were like “what?” and then there was this kind of acceptance “oh, that must be some new kind of exterminator or sanitation guy or something” [laughs], in the way that New Yorkers sort of accept everything and move on. It was really, really funny to see their reactions. I’ll never forget that.”

Tons more fun stuff here, including why Aykroyd can’t drive a Bentley Mulsanne and how he’d hilariously like to be remembered when he segues to the great SNL green room in the sky.
