Kevin Durant Q&A: ‘I forgot my lines the first time.'

By Darnell Mayberry Published: October 9, 2011

Kevin Durant discusses his movie.

Q: What was your initial reaction to landing a movie?

KD: At first I didn't want to do it because it was kind of stepping out of the box for me. But after I thought about it, it was something that I said would be a good opportunity. I'm playing myself so I can't mess that up. It was easy for me to make that decision after that.

Q: Was it a matter of fear at first?

KD: Yeah. I'm a little camera shy. But just being me, man. I just want people to see how I am. It's going to be fun once it's all said and done. It's been cool so far. Everybody's been making it easy for me and making me comfortable so I'm having fun.

Q: What was your first lesson in acting after the director said action for the first time?

KD: I forgot my lines the first time. And it was simple. I had been practicing them for a couple of days.

I didn't think I'd be having this much fun.

Q: You're generally your toughest critic. How would you rate your performance so far?

KD: Actually, I think I'm doing pretty good. Of course, I didn't think I would be. But everything seems natural. It seems like we're moving through things quick.

Q: Best and worst part of making a movie?

KD: The best part is just seeing how a scene looks on the playback. It brings everything into perspective for you. It shows once this thing comes alive it's going to be really cool to see. I think the worse part is just doing things over and over again. The other day we did a scene that's probably going to be one minute in the movie. But we did it for about five or six hours. But that grind, you knew it was going to come with it.
