In the last years of his life, the star of Soviet cinema led a reclusive lifestyle. Andrei Vasilyevich did not act in films, and also began to perform less in the theater.

Today programs are on air “Adrey Malakhov. Live” showed the last interview of Andrey Myagkov. The actor agreed to talk with Malakhov at the host’s house. The artist admitted that he is a big fan of the showman. In a conversation with the host, Myagkov spoke about his dislike of popularity, and also asked Malakhov not to ask questions about the film Eldara Ryazanova “Irony of Fate or Enjoy Your Bath!”… According to the actor, this film is shown on TV too often. “If you didn’t ask me anything about the painting“ Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath! ” I would be very grateful to you. It has been going on for more than 50 years, and every year many times I hear questions about this picture and have to answer. I hoped not to ask anything – it didn’t work, ”the actor shared.

However, it should be noted that Andrei Vasilyevich has developed especially warm friendly relations with the film crew of “The Irony of Fate”. That is why Myagkov was greatly outraged by the fact that many actresses, whom the director filmed in his films, did not come to parting with Eldar Ryazanov. Andrei Vasilyevich even stopped communicating with the artists who missed the mourning ceremony. “He adored them, all these girls. I can’t see them, nobody. This is bad, but true. I don’t want to see them. He adored them. He made a career for them, he took them off. And suddenly do not come to the requiem, goodbye. I don’t understand this, ”the actor admitted. Myagkov added that he did not seek to understand the behavior of his colleagues, although he suggested that the reason for such an attitude towards Ryazanov could have been a quarrel between the director and Nikita Mikhalkov…
Interestingly, despite his many achievements in cinema, Andrei Myagkov considered theater to be his main business. According to the artist, he took seriously only the roles in Ryazanov’s tapes. “For me, cinema, unfortunately, I now understand, I never took it seriously. Rarely, very rarely. Well, perhaps, Ryazanov’s only paintings, I invested. And everything else, unfortunately, is so; rather, so that the shift ends and goes home, to the theater, ”said Andrei Vasilyevich. In addition, the artist admitted that at the moment he does not want to act in films. The actor explained his position by the fact that there are no talented directors in the modern film industry.
