Charlton Heston – Biografija

Charlton Heston (4. oktobar 1923. – 5. april 2008.), američki filmski, pozorišni i televizijski glumac, nagrađen Oscarom za glavnu ulogu u filmu Ben-Hur.

Biografija

Rodio se kao John Charles Carter u mjestu Evanston, savezna država Illinois. Roditelji su mu se razveli kada je imao 10 godina. Prezime “Heston” je dobio od očuha, Chestera Hestona. U srednjoj školi bio je aktivan u dramskoj grupi, pa je dobio stipendiju za Univerzitet Northwestern. Prvu je filmsku ulogu imao 1941., a sljedeću 1950. godine. U međuvremenu je bio u američkoj vojsci, oženio se Lydiom Clarke, s kojom je ostao do kraja života, a do kraja 1940-ih je nastupao u pozorištu. U filmskoj karijeri, koja je trajala preko 50 godina, najznačajnije su mu uloge u filmovima Deset zapovijesti, Ben-Hur, Planeta majmuna i Soylent Green. Ukupno je ostvario 126 filmskih i televizijskih uloga.

Bio je protivnik makartizma i rasne segregacije, kao i veliki aktivista za ljudska prava te je sudjelovao u Maršu na Washington 1963. godine. Vodio je i 45. dodjelu Oscara, 1973. godine.

Heston je bio zagovornik upotrebe oružja, te predsjednik “National Rifle Associationa” (NRA), udruženja koje se zalaže za korišćenje oružja u domaćinstvima u svrhu samodobrane. Ta je njegova uloga više puta bila ismijavana, primjerice u dokumentarnom filmu Bowling for Columbine, gdje je autor filma Michael Moore posjetio Hestona u njegovom domu i kritikovao njega i njegovo udruženje. Heston je ustao i napustio intervju, a scenu je Moore uključio u film. Heston se često pozivao na sporni Drugi amandman Ustava SAD-a, koji omogućava nošenje vatrenog oružja.

Predsjednik George W. Bush dodijelio mu je Predsjedničku medalju slobode, najviše američko civilno odličje.

U penziju je otišao 2003. godine, nakon što je javno objavio da mu je dijagnostifikovana Alzheimerova bolest. Posljednje godine života proveo je prikovan za krevet. Umro je u svom domu na Beverly Hillsu, 5. aprila 2008. godine.
