Mike Myers on Shrek Forever After

In three films, the Shrek series has taught kids some valuable lessons. Don’t judge a book by its cover, love others, don’t be selfish, or something. The fourth film, Shrek Forever After, teaches viewers to appreciate the good things in their lives.

Mike Myers is Shrek

“I think that Shrek is a little bit like Flintstones vitamins,” Mike Myers said. “You’re eating Barney and Dino and you don’t know it’s good for you. It has built in vitamins but the delivery system is very enjoyable.”

In Shrek Forever After, Shrek makes a drastic decision because he’s tired of all the attention he gets. Myers can relate to that.

“I do now live in the swamp,” he joked. “I like my privacy. When I do something like this, I love being a part of this. And when I'm not doing stuff, I like to go away. I enjoy being a person a great deal.”

Myers still appreciates all his success and the benefits it has afforded him. He wouldn’t sell his life to Rumplestiltskin. “It's hard to be super full of yourself in Canada. If there was a motto of Canada, it would be, ‘Who do you think you are, eh?’ I think very good training just to be a person is growing up in Canada. People say a lot of things about Canada, that it's boring and stuff, but if you look around the world, I think it's a very civilized place to grow up. When I was a kid in Toronto, you have your nose against the window, looking south to show business, Showbiznia, the United States. I feel like every day I get to do what I do, it’s a dream day. So it’s kind of an amazing thing.”

Even though Forever After is billed as the final Shrek, Myers is game to revisit the ogre any time, perhaps in another decade. “The final chapter reunion movie? Yeah, sure. I just play the voice. I don’t really know what goes on.”

Shrek Forever After is out in theaters now.
