Dennis Hopper speaks candidly about his role as King Koopa

This is the funniest thing I have read all day.

On last night’s Late Night with Conan O'Brien, when asked if he regrets any of the 150 films he has acted in over the years, acclaimed actor Dennis Hopper had this to say:

I made a picture called Super Mario Bros., and my six-year-old son at the time -- he's now 18 -- he said, 'Dad, I think you're probably a pretty good actor, but why did you play that terrible guy King Koopa in Super Mario Bros.?' and I said, 'Well Henry, I did that so you could have shoes,' and he said, 'Dad, I don't need shoes that badly.'

Best story ever!

So, I guess Dennis Hopper made official what we all pretty much knew all along: he took the role of King Koopa for money. Man, where the heck did I put that surprise face?!

What do you think? Do you love Dennis Hopper even more now? How much do you love/hate Super Mario Bros. (the movie, of course)? And, can someone please explain to me ... WHY THE HECK IS KING KOOPA A HUMAN IN THAT MOVIE?!
