You ever pop Jaws into the DVD player and get that feeling like you just don t really want to go into the water anytime soon? Don t worry because Steven Spielberg has that feeling as well, every time he goes near glass of water. I know it s hard to believe that the kingpin of directors would feel like that but there is actual proof.
When talking about the story of Jaws in a special about the film, John Milius stated that Spielberg would not go into the water while on vacation in Hawaii. The reason why Spielberg is scared to go in the water, he feels the sharks are plotting revenge against him. It s a bit of a stretch but the fact is that when you think of the nature of the film, you have to assume that some sharks are probably waiting in the wings for a bite of the Steven.
