The real reason you don't hear from Gene Hackman anymore
For nearly five decades, Eugene Allen Hackman was a staple of American cinema. During that time, the San Bernardino-born actor won four Golden Globes, two BAFTAs, and two Academy Awards while starring in such great films as The French Connection, The Conversation, Hoosiers, Mississippi Burning, Unforgiven, Get Shorty, The Royal Tenenbaums, and many others.
