SHORT TAKES : Movie's a Hit With Ex-Mobster

October 04, 1990| From Times Wire Services

NEW YORK — Mobster-turned-informant Henry Hill has seen "GoodFellas," the movie based on his life, and gives it two thumbs up for reality.

"That movie was 99% accurate. That's the way we lived, that's (the way) we treated our wives, always on the hustle," Hill said in an interview with the syndicated television program "Inside Edition."

Hill, who appears on the show wearing a beard and sunglasses because he is in the witness protection program, says life has changed dramatically since he turned government witness and slipped into anonymity. He is remarried and has a new baby.

"I can put my head on the pillow and not have to worry about a phone call in the middle of the night to 'come and meet me with a shovel,' " Hill said. "All that craziness, that insanity, is gone from my life."
