I milked cows for eight years when I was a kid and I roofed for six or seven years when I was in college. It gave me a point of reference for all of the hard work that most people have to do. It keeps me humble.
[about his The Dukes of Hazzard (1979) days] From the time I rolled out of bed until I was in the truck with a coffee mug in my hand was seven minutes. All you had to do was get to the studio. They did everything for you; hair, make-up, costumes. On Broadway you have to do a little more for yourself.
As far as The Dukes of Hazzard (1979) goes, it was what it was. It was a huge phenomenon. If you have a success of that stature you should embrace it. And you shouldn't deny it. Some people who have a popular television show will tell you that they wanted to "be more artistic" and deny that that TV show was what they wanted to do, but to me it's all work.
