No other German journalist has interviewed such a high-grade choice of role models and people at issue from the world of art and entertainment in the last 20 years than STERN author Sven Michaelsen. In "Star Cuts" (Starschnitte) he lets numerous idols and consciousness producers of our time tell pointed, how they have become what they are – and what they have learned about the world and themselves.

Pop stars like Robbie Williams analyse their addictions and the depths of their soul ("Take away the applause, and I’ll be a physical wreck in no time."). Film icons like Woody Allen reveal their hidden motives ("My filming is like weaving in mental asylums: In the process the patient feels easier."). Brilliant actors like Gert Voss tell of the impertinences of their metier ("Peter Zadek was sitting opposite to me in his underpants."). And authors like Walter Kempowski talk about their state of mind ("Such an angry outburst has the same relieving effect as an orgasm.").

"Star Cuts" (Starschnitte) is an informative as well as highly entertaining collection of experiences and discoveries of people, who ought to know – and proves the glamour of thinking and clever consideration.

"Star Cuts" (Starschnitte) shows sights and insights of Roman Polanski, Helmut Newton, Peter Zadek, Robert De Niro, Elfriede Jelinek, Jeff Koons, Peter Handke, Jil Sander, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Peter Ustinov, Robert Wilson, Paulo Coelho, Harald Schmidt, Michael Caine, Bernhard Minetti, Hugh Hefner, George Tabori, Arthur Miller, Vivienne Westwood, Salman Rushdie, Franz Xaver Kroetz, Kirk Douglas, Einar Schleef, Martin Walser, Naomi Campbell, Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Karl Lagerfeld, Siegfried Unseld, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Heiner Müller, Jurek Becker, Johannes Mario Simmel, Joachim Fest, Stevie Wonder, Gunter Sachs, Wolf Wondratschek, Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many others.
