1. The Inspiration
“Crocodile Dundee” star Paul Hogan has stated many times that there is no real-life Crocodile Dundee. He states that he came up with the idea after his own trip to New York City. As a native Australian, Hogan says he felt like an alien in the big city.
“I felt like an alien from another planet, some of the ‘Bushie’ guys I know would feel even more out of place. There’s a myth that there is a real Crocodile Dundee but there isn’t,” actor Paul Hogan told the BBC.
