James Cameron is known to be very detail-oriented and strict when it comes to making his movies.
Cameron recently did an interview revealing a shocking detail on how he created “Terminator 2: Judgement Day”.
He said, “I remember sitting there once, high on E, writing notes for ‘Terminator’, and I was struck by Sting’s song, that ‘I hope the Russians love their children too’. And I thought,
‘You know what? The idea of a nuclear war is just so antithetical to life itself.’ That’s where the kid came from.”
James Cameron reveals he worked on the story for Terminator 2 while high on Ecstasy.
