Watch: Terrence Malick Dances To Country Western Music Just Like Regular People

Press shy, mercurial and often leaving his actors a bit baffled (just ask Ben Affleck, Richard Gere or Christopher Plummer), it’s often hard to get a read on just who Terrence Malick is. Eccentric genius? Reclusive philosopher? Well, while that is open for speculation, the oddball facts about Malick are a bit more fun to toss around, such as his apparent love for “Zoolander.” What else does he like? Dancing.

Thanks to the wonder (ha!) of the interwebs, a brief video has surfaced of Malick doing some country western dancing just like regular people. That’s right, the Rhodes Scholar and Harvard philosophy major likes to unwind in your local country dive bar, getting down and dancing. We’ll buy you a pitcher any time, Terry. Watch below.

wow, the man just enjoys his privacy. Leave him alone and shame on the person who filmed this without him knowing.


He looks almost as embarassed as on the TMZ video with Benicio el Toro! It's like he lost a bet and had to dance… Or he's just forcing himself to do normal thing like everybody but it doesn't look very natural…


A few seconds after the video stopped Malick started doing the truffle shuffle.


Sorry, I was preoccupied with the girl in the black dress. Take my word for it, learn how to dance, and go to country western bars. My Lord.






some of these people need to lighten up. christ.


Was half expecting bigfoot to be on lead guitar.


Damn this is awesome ahhahahah love Malick!


Do regular people dance to country and western?


I'm creeped out and a little disappointed this was posted here.

At least it's good country music. Not that Taylor Swift, the Band Perry, Rascal Flatts bullshit.
