John Cusack would run up a mammoth credit card bill if he thought the world was about to end
John Cusack would run up a massive debt if he knew the world was to end.
The 43-year-old actor - who stars in the new film '2012' where he plays the hero in a world which is ending - believes the apocalypse would draw people closer together, but he would be more interested in going on a massive shopping spree.
When asked about how people would react to the news the world was to end, he said: "Maybe people will get less commercial, less interested in material things. Although if there was going to be an apocalypse we should just charge a lot of s**t on credit cards and not worry about the consequences. Which is sort of what we've done anyway."
The 'Being John Malkovich' star also admitted his career had made him become incredibly cynical.
He added to Elle magazine: "You can think that the world has so many problems that you can become pretty judgmental. And when you're in this business, there's certainly a type you become. I'm cynical about life, about people."
