Rutger Hauer is an international film star who has made more than one hundred movies, playing everything from romantic leads, to action heroes, to sinister villains. His films Blade Runner, The Hitcher and Ladyhawke have made him a cult legend. But the acclaimed actor is also a fascinating Renaissance man who has led a life extraordinary enough for the big screen.
In this compelling autobiography, Rutger recalls a life of grand adventure, from leaving his parents’ home at fifteen to sail the world as a crewman on a freighter, to a stint in a mental hospital to escape the Dutch military, to his long and prolific career as an actor on stage and screen. For the first time, this charismatic yet intensely private man offers a behind-the-scenes look at his life in the movie industry.
From rocketing to European stardom with the 1973 Dutch film Turkish Delight – a movie that shocked many audiences with its nudity and graphic sexuality – to the later triumphs that made him a star around the world, Rutger talks about the hard work behind the glitter. From the inner workings of cult classics and box offices smashes to the near tragedy that changed his life, he candidly shares his ups and downs. A must-have for fans of both Rutger Hauer and Blade Runner alike, ALL THOSE MOMENTS gives an intimate picture of the man behind the on-screen persona.
