Small excerpt from a Petit interview with The Guardian
- The Guardian: Your memoir, To Reach the Clouds, is being made into a feature film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as you. Have you met him?
- Philippe Petit: Yes, we have met and more than that, I gave him a two-week private workshop, teaching him high-wire, magic and juggling.
- The Guardian: Was he any good?
- Philippe Petit: Yes, he actually was very good. After two weeks, we put a wire up 6ft high, 30ft long and he did a single crossing by himself.
