Anton Yelchin is Dazed and Confused

Anton Yelchin is Dazed and Confused

Termination Salvation (and Star Trek) star Anton Yelchin is a 20-year-old actor with “probing intellect of a man four times his age,” according to UK’s Dazed & Confused magazine.

“I was totally, immediately in love with acting,” he says. “There’s such potential for catharsis, for analyzing the human condition; for exploring yourself. I mean, I can’t work on myself for s—, but sometimes through the characters I find something deep inside myself that ends up really affecting me. It’s hard to be self-analytical, but with acting, you do find that you’re suddenly learning something about yourself.”

Anton philosophies, “There’s no emotional rest with acting. You’re always kind of in it. Which is how it should be, actually. I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

    yeah yeah this kid is going to blow up. i was reading a review (i think it was on the Time site Ent section) and they kept calling him chekov and poo poo’d the entire movie except for the graphics, sound effects, and the australian guy. lol.

  • hwooddood

  • marissa

    he is adorable!

  • Marie

    Love him!!

  • Helena

    Hottie! Also a talent. I’ve loved his acting ever since Hearts in Atlantis.

  • RobN

    How much catharsis, and analyzing of the human condition, went on in his portrayal of Chekov? lol. The entire role consisted of the computer not understanding his accent.

  • shellie

    Reminds me of Orlando Bloom.

  • Steph

    I just watched TS4 yesterday, it was good & I found him really adorable~ :)

  • angell cakes

    he was great in terminator! wow he sounds like a genius or soemthing lol. imagine having a conversation with him?

  • F0rrest3r

    It’s always nice to see a kid actor grow up well. I first noticed him in the “Taken” miniseries on the SciFi Channel.

  • Ale

    No offense but his acting wasn’t that great in Star Trek…

  • wank

    omg he SUCKED in ST of course the whole movie sucked….

  • mertz

    yeah i have to say i’ve seen the kid act, and i’m kinda in the middle with him. i think he has potential, but definately needs the right roles…even he knows this and has said that many times. he’s just taking roles now to get in the game (make money) and raise his profile…but really anton, don’t sell your soul. stay away from the big budget stuff, and the action movies.

  • silentsophi

  • naomi


  • @Steph: lol i did too. he’s a cutie and i’m looking forward to seeing his star rise =)

  • Bella


    He does NOT look like a Jonas Brother…Please don’t ever make that comparison again! He is a handsome, talented young actor. <345

  • Laura

    hes so cuteeee :-)

  • @mertz: there’s nothing wrong with action movies.

  • naomi

    @Bella: I can say whatever i want, and i will say it again little lady, HE DOES LOOK LIKE A JONAS, that’s my opinion ok?

  • sj

    He’s so cute, and only 20! ;-)

  • sj

    @Bella: he looks like a jonas brother if you squint a little, do a handstand and then put a picture of a jonas brother in front of the screen

  • IvyMades

    He was amazing in T4. He really brought Kyle to life — which was no easy task because the script was CRAP. Too much CGI, too little plot. Anton and Sam Worthington gave excellent performances and made the movie worth watching.

    I wasn’t really a fan on Chekov in Star Trek. I think Anton shined more in T4.

  • Camille

    He’s my age! :) I remember watching him in movies like “Delivering Milo” and “Hearts in Atlantis.” It’s great to see him transitioning to adult roles without doing teen movies.

  • Vestes de Cuisine

    He is so adorable! He reminds me of like a mini Adam Brody.
