The Academy Award-nominated A Beautiful Mind, based on the life story of mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr., has become a subject of controversy over omissions of his illegitimate child and alleged bisexuality and anti-Semitism. Nash himself will discuss his life in public for the first time when he appears on CBS's 60 Minutes on Sunday, March 27; he will be interviewed by Mike Wallace.
Ironically, Wallace fervently objected to what he felt were distortions of truth in The Insider, an Oscar-nominated film from 1999, which dealt with tobacco industry whistle-blower Jeffrey Wigand and his experiences with 60 Minutes. Both The Insider and A Beautiful Mind star Russell Crowe.
