Emile Hirsch - "Flaunt Magazine" Issue #93
The 23-year-old young, rising star (Lords of Dogtown, Alpha Dog, Into the Wild) was shot by the legendary photographer David LaChapelle. “It was an honor to work with David in such an exotic environment as Hanna, Maui, ” Emile said. “David is full of fresh and creative ideas, and has unlimited energy.”
Here are some interview snippets from Emile‘s Flaunt interview:
On being grateful for his genetic luck: “When you have parents who are encouraging of creative things, who give you a pen and paper and different-colored markers
and are excited about how you are creative visually, it’s good for your development and imagination.”
On doing what’s not expected of him: “I’m more interested in doing different films where I don’t know if I can go off or not. That was one of the exciting parts about doing Speed Racer. It was all green screen, craziness , comic-book superheroes, and That was part of the challenge, what was appealing about it. It wasn’t just some tiny independent film that was all dialogue and character. There were different components to it.”
In the full interview, Emile sounds off on Heath Ledger, his new movie Milk and the Classical Greek philosopher Socrates. Pick up the Flaunt issue, which is on newsstands TODAY! Emile‘s upcoming high-octane film Speed Racer opens in theaters everywhere on May 9.
