Sam Worthington Covers 'Esquire' September 2009

Terminator Salvation stud Sam Worthington heats up the September 2009 issue of Esquire. Here’s what the 33-year-old Aussie actor had to say:

On bringing depth to the characters he plays: “Hopefully I’m bringing more complexity to it than Jean-Claude Van Damme does. No offense to the dude.”

On not being intimidated by producers and movie studios: But I don’t ever feel that there’s a pressure of a suit going, ‘If this f—s up, it’s because of you,’ because I’ll go, ‘You hired me, d—head!’”

On ripping on celebs who are in it for the fame: “Oh, isn’t it cool? It’s so cool being an actor! It’s so cool having my face on a bus. That’s bulls–. I hate people like that.”

On what he told Avatar director James Cameron: “I’ll do whatever you need me to do to sell your f—ing movie. I’ll call my first kid f—ing Avatar if you want me to, if that helps you sell it.”

Sam was most recently cast opposite Charlize Theron in Tourists.

    ok whatsup with all the F word being used? hey buddy, if your trying to sound like a tough guy, then use another tactic.

    Yeah seriously.. I don’t like this interview at all. Doesn’t make him sound great as a person. Isn’t he supposed to be all great and up and coming? It makes him sound like a male version of Megan Fox or Katherine Heigl, ugh.

    I guess he thinks he is such a macho man with all these curses.

    Sorry, not my type.

    He definitely does not come off well in this interview. He was OK in Terminator even though the movie itself sucked—so I dont understand all his bravado he’s got going.

    the real good guess is :single or not? or Gay or straight?

    LOL Says:

    LMAO! He is hot, but would be even hotter as a gay men…something about the “not being able to date” thing makes gay men even sexier…or it just makes you depressed. Oh, and this is coming from a straight woman….

    But I’m guessing, single, on the down low/ bi-sexual….ha

    you know what i hate more than actors that revel in the fact that they are famous? actors that take the business so seriously they can’t see that the basis for doing this is because you ENJOY it.

    carrie Says:

    @Alexandria: you work seriously?
    i dislike when people say “my job is a pleasure,not a work”. why could the actors work seriuosly? a movie is expensive(blockbuster or nor) and if the actor don’t know his lines,he kills the movie.How many movie are bad because of miscast?

    Concerning the F-word, GET OVER IT. If that bothers you so much, go read about the Jonas Brothers or Josh Hartnett. Stop critisizing someone who at least has the balls not to edit everything he says because of the delicate snowflakes who happen to be reading.

    marissa Says:


    it just a fact that he is obviously insecure. hey dont get on us, get him for putting on this “tough” guy front, knowing he needs hollywood. and the people that support hollywood, including sites like this and people like you commenting.

    i totally agree with you

    I worked with Sam Worthington on Avatar (which is why I had to post this as “anon”) and he is, without question a complete *******. He was SO obnoxious to my team and myself, and made everyone feel incredibly uncomfortable. Seriously, the stories I could tell! Unfortunately nearly all of them would identify me and get me fired, which is almost worth it to expose his bulls***). Although it appears that Sam is doing a pretty good job exposing his own pompous, highly aggressive, mentally unstable personality to the world.

    Jeff Says:

    He’s in probably one of the most (if not THE most) expensive and highly anticipated movies ever and he’s trashing on people that are in it for the fame?

    TROY Says:

    I can concur ANON ; he is from my experience recently working with him ,up and down like a yoyo. I read over the whole article and find he may be too brutally honest. I dont know if that was his intention or if he just slipped. I feel he was intense to work with, not friendly but did what was required of him in the job. Almost like he didnt set out to work to find friends, but just produce the work – - work that seemed to make him overtly nervous. As regards to his temper I only experienced it when thrown towards a director who needed to take control and though most or we, would never work like that, it seemed to bring together a cohesive set. I dont agree with his methods, may not be a fan of his style and work, but do believe he stands by his fortitude towards the job at hand and is out to produce film of merit. At what cost I echo you – - – but it is too soon to judge and I dont know the man personally to lay judgement without sounding like a bitter fool.

    he sounds like a fuking douche

    oh poor delicate flowers Says:

    Oh please, people need to stop being sooooo precious. Sam Worthington is REFRESHING with his non PC answers. I like the fact that he says what he thinks and has a no bullsh*t attitude about his work. Finally we have an actor with a bit of personality instead of the usual bland, boring and blah, if you don’t like his blunt Aussie style, don’t watch his films, simple.

    stellartes Says:

    i don’t care what he says…I just love him!

    kate Says:

    My god, you are all so touchy. So he tells it like it is, big deal. No one likes idiot producers and fame-hungry celebrities anyway.

    And the swearing isn’t a front – he does quite a few interviews where he slips the F word into general conversation. And he’s an Aussie, he used to be a bricklayer, its not a big deal.
