Sam Worthington Covers 'Esquire' September 2009
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.
