How Ron Howard's Midwest Ethics Helped Him Throughout His Career

We were thrilled to have director and actor Ron Howard on the show, who's just released his newest film, In The Heart Of The Sea. Ron has had an amazing career in television and film, as both an actor and as an Academy Award-winning director. Ron chats about what made him want to direct this movie, how he prepared his actors, and the real secret for of being married 40 years.

How Ron's midwest ethics helped him throughout his career
For someone living an entire life in front of and behind the Hollywood lens, Ron Howard can come off as almost unnaturally easygoing. In the above video, hear what Ron claims is the key to this balanced worldview, and how his father's midwestern "zen" helped him shed the need for glamour or celebrity that affects most of the movie industry.

Watch the rest of the interview with Ron here.

And check out the trailer for In The Heart Of The Sea below! It's out now in theaters everywhere.
