Herzog: 'Being Shot At Is Exhilarating'
Director WERNER HERZOG enjoys the buzz of being shot at, after dodging bullets on two occasions.
The German filmmaker was attacked by a mystery sniper in Los Angeles in 2006, while he was being interviewed on camera by a BBC movie journalist.
He was hit in abdomen by a metal pellet leaving him cut and bruised, but stunned viewers by reacting calmly.
During an appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brian on Wednesday (4Jun08), the Rescue Dawn director revealed that wasn't the first time he had been shot at - and confessed he found both experience invigorating.
He said, "I was shot more seriously with real bullets. But not hit. That's the great exhilarating feeling for a man, to be shot at without success."
