The longest Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert went without watching a movie was one month, and that was during his honeymoon in 1992, he says in a Q&A with the New York Times. He was 6 years old when he knew what wanted to do. When his best friend’s father, who was an editor for a local paper, set his name into type — "By Roger Ebert" — he knew he wanted to be a newspaper reporter. He still has the typewriter from his days as an editor at The Daily Illini, the University of Illinois paper, as well as all the portable computers he has ever owned. He says the worst thing about his job is doing interviews with someone for movies he didn’t like. A recent example is with Oliver Stone for "Alexander," which received a 2 star review from him.
