Turning Down 60 Minutes - Sheila Nevins MAKERS Moment
Sheila Nevins on her take being on live television and directing instead.
- I turned down 60 Minutes because Don Hewitt asked me to be on camera. And I thought that was the most horrible, frightening thing I'd ever heard in my whole life, that I would actually be visible and observed and self-conscious. I just didn't want to do it. And that's why I thought this directing job would be great, because I would be directing. So I remember going to a place called Energetics shoe store in the 30's and buying directing shoes. Ugly, like old lady shoes, so that I could direct. And then I learned it was directing, meaning I was gonna call old bosses and ask them to make films. And I thought, well, I'll try that for a while. So it's like 30 years later, I'm still doing the same thing.
