Evel Knievel’s Last Interview With Maxim

R.I.P. Evel Knievel. The legendary stuntman gave an interview to Maxim magazine shortly before his death last week.

Knievel suffered from the rare lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

“how much can a human body endure? My immune system’s shot. The doctors gave me three years four years ago. I got this disease that’s so rare there’s no cure. I don’t know of anybody else who had it except Marlon Brando.”

He also tells how he “found God” a few months ago in a hotel room:

“All my life I was an atheist,” he says. “I’d tell people I didn’t believe Jesus could walk on water. Then something happened in Daytona. God spoke to me. He said, ‘Robert, you got to stop tellin’ people you don’t believe in me. I been takin’ care of you for years, watchin’ over you. I done everything for you. And you go tell people you don’t believe in me. You gotta stop it.’ ”

Evel puts his hands over his face, then sobs,

“I told God I’d never insult him again.”
