Paul Hogan from ‘Crocodile Dundee’ is legit confused by new behaving honour

Nothing launched Australia onto a universe theatre utterly like 1986 film Crocodile Dundee.

The star of it all, Paul Hogan, has finally been recognized for his grant to a internal film attention by receiving a Longford Lyell Award from a Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA). 

But Hogan himself doesn’t consider he unequivocally deserves it. 

Discussing a endowment with reporters on Tuesday, Hogan pronounced a honour, presented by AACTA boss and associate actor Geoffrey Rush, was “mystifying” according to AAP.

“He’s (Rush) an actor. we usually play one character. I’m a outrageous one-hit wonder,” Hogan said. 

Your words, Dundee. Your words.


Crocodile Dundee started out as a blueprint it was going to be “Hoges in New York” and it only arrange of grew from there — a fluke.”

The seminal ’80s film became a strike in a U.S. and surfaced box bureau charts for weeks in places like Paris, Rome and Stockholm.

“I consider it went series one in each country, I’m not certain about Nicaragua, though it went series one everywhere else and it was a initial eccentric film to ever go series one right around a world,” Hogan said.

Despite a film’s play on an mostly wrong stereotypes about Aussies, a appreciation for a utilitarian, outback-dwelling Mick Dundee hasn’t seemed to die down. 

The film also came during a time in a ’80s when America seemed honestly obsessed with Australia, with stars like Olivia Newton-John and Yahoo Serious creation their symbol overseas.

Fun fact: That additional shrimp on a barbie is still there. Waiting. 

Please come to Australia. #tourism
