Jack White on revealing details about his personal life on film
“It’s not easy. The idea that it wasn’t really scripted…made it a lot easier to do it. I don’t know if it’s always a smart move for an artist to give everything away. There’s a temptation to do that nowadays because there’s so much more media to give it away with. But at times, you just make a decision that it’s important to talk about certain things.
“[Davis] handed me a Son House record when we were filming, and we didn’t talk about that we were gonna do that necessarily. But we listened to it and talked about it. That could’ve been something where I said, ‘You know, that’s too close to me, let’s not put it in the film, if you don’t mind.’ But it felt right to me.”
