THE NEW AMERICAN HERO
STEVE-O TALKS ABOUT HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH
JOHNNY KNOXVILLE, THAT INFAMOUS GOLDFISH
AND THE MAKING OF JACKASS: NUMBER TWO
by Richard Livsey

Most people think that Steve-O is nothing more than an alligator taunting, wasabi snorting, goldfish
regurgitating wild man, but they are wrong.

Mr. O is a bona fide entertainer with a resume that includes clown school, writing credits, stunt work,
and leading roles. Now he's back on the big screen again in Jackass: Number Two.

Although it wasn't easy to catch up with him, I was able to get Steve-O to slow down for a few minutes and
give me the gory details about his quest for fame, fortune and pain.

Richard Livsey: What was it like working on Jackass Number Two? How was it different than the first one?

Steve-O: Jackass: The Movie had scary moments. Number Two was pretty much horrifying the whole time.

RL: Have you sustained many injuries doing stunts over the years?

SO: I broke my cheekbone, seven teeth, received ten stitches in my chin, and broke my wrist....all in one fall. That was in 1995. I was an idiot back then.

RL: Describe your relationship with Johnny Knoxville? Is it just professional or do you guys hang out? If so, what do you guys do for fun?

SO: Work can really wear us down, that's why you can always find us at the bar.
