#Fact
1 Emotionally devastated by the August 9th, 1969 murder of his friend Sharon Tate, he suffered what he described as a "nervous breakdown" and abandoned his acting career.
2 Served six months in a military stockade on Governor's Island in New York, NY for going AWOL from the Army. After being discharged, he remained in New York City and fell in with the arts crowd, which lead to a love of painting and his career in acting.
3 Made his Broadway debut on December 28, 1961 in the premiere of Tennessee Williams The Night of the Iguana (1964) playing the Mexican beach-boy Pancho. The other beach-boy Pedro was played by James Farentino: Both became good friends with Shelley Winters, who played a key role in introducing Jones to his future wife, Susan Strasberg. They married in 1965, after living together, when Strasberg became pregnant.
4 Visited James Dean's family in Indiana, while traveling to New York, and ended up staying with them a few days; they'd hit it off well.
5 A relationship with Cathy Abernathy (1974-1980) produced a son, Christopher Jones, Jr., in 1975. He later fathered four children via a ten-year relationship with Paula McKenna (1984-1994).
6 Sideline: oil, watercolor and acrylic painter.
7 Discussed in three actresses' autobiographies: "Serves Me Right" (1994) by Sarah Miles; "Shelley II: The Middle of My Century" (1989) by Shelley Winters; and "Bittersweet" (1980) by Susan Strasberg.
8 Turned down the role of Zed in Pulp Fiction (1994)

#Quote
1 I am happy. Everyone has regrets, but I don't have many that I want to talk about. I did exactly as I pleased -- within my world. [Interview with Jim Mueller, 2000]
2 [1966 magazine interview] I adored movies. Everything was so clean and uncomplicated in the movies. All those important people in their big houses. That was my ideal. I wanted to be a movie star. The movies kept me going for a long time. They kept me going until I learned in New York three years ago that there is no ideal, that there are very few people who aren't hypocrites.
3 [on visiting James Dean's family while AWOL from the army] The Winslows were very nice people and made me feel right at home. Marcus [Dean's cousin] was not home, I suppose he may have been in school. They took me up to Jimmy's room where his Levis were lying on the bed waiting for him to jump into them and there were several pairs of boots on the floor just where he had left them. His uncle showed me his motorcycle and took me to the barn to see Jimmy's handprint they had put in the cement when he was nine years old. He also told me Jimmy fell while he was playing and his father made him a plate which he wore for the rest of his life.
4 I never took the resemblance and comparisons to Dean [James Dean] too seriously, I felt that I had talent in my own right.
5 But you know, I loved David [David Lean], and he liked me and we got along great most of the time. Just a few times it was head-to-head. But I totally respected him. A brilliant director. The best there was.
6 [in 1996, on why he left the film industry] I'd had a nervous breakdown over Sharon Tate's death. I had done three pictures in a row in Europe, and had so many love affairs I was exhausted. I was tired, man.
