Johnny Whitworth: I Would've Been A Psychotherapist

Johnny Whitworth: I Would've Been A Psychotherapist

Check out Johnny Whitworth in this feature from Da Man‘s February/March 2012 issue, on sale now.

Here’s what the 36-year-old actor, who can next be seen in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, had to share with the mag:

On why he decided to act: “I have wanted to be an actor since I was 6 years old. I’m not sure what made me decide, I just knew. I can tell you when I saw Eddie Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop that I wanted to be a movie star. But it was when I watched The Good, the Bad and the Ugly with my dad and saw Eli Wallach in the bath scene (I felt how dirty he was and how good that bath was gonna be) that I knew that I wanted to be an actor.”

On what he’d be doing if he wasn’t in Hollywood: “I would have been a psychotherapist. I’m very interested in why and how we, as human beings, do things.”

On previously working with Christian Bale and Russell Crowe: “Well, I learn something on every set. But, indeed, everyone you listed off here are top notch professionals and excellent craftsmen, and have influenced me with both their work on the set and in their films.”

    Hi everybody,

    Does anyone know what the name of this large cotton bracelet he wears?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Loved by the Buffalo

    @Todd333: it’s called cut a piece off a white shirt and wrap it around your wrist. im not kidding, this is what my friends and i do.

  • torrance

    i only know him from one movie – Empire Records.

  • megan

    he’s pretty hot.

  • Alexis


    I was wondering what happened to him. I didn’t know he still acted!!

  • Todd333

    @Loved by the Buffalo: Oh, I hadn’t even thought about that! So, is it better to choose a tee or a shirt? Thank you mate.

  • Loved By the Buffalo

    @Todd333: it’s pretty easy. t-shirt cotton material will last longer than say a dress shirt material. plus, you probably wouldnt want to cut up a dress shirt. just wrap it around your wrist and tuck it in on the under side of the wrist so the nice part is on top.
    i honestly didnt take mine off for a long time, i just showered with it on so i wouldnt have to re-wrap it every day. only thing is it gets wet in the shower of course, but it dries pretty fast.

  • torrance

    @Alexis: girly he was too cute not to google lol so apparently he had a steady gig for many years as a detective on csi:miami. but i dont watch any of the CSIs. good for him tho :) he was also in 3:10 to yuma with bale & crowe, that’s why he was asked about them.

  • Hugo

    Johnny will also be in a new independent film called Valley of the Sun.

  • jessa

    bale & crowe sounds like a western law firm.

  • bella

    all the photos are cool as sh*t. only one critique – in #2 he did not have to have the tacky tooth pick! love the jacket tho!

  • Love by the Buffalo

    sorry, if u plan on keepingit on for a while, just knot it rather than tuck. more secure.
    when u want to take it off one day, just cut it off.
    easy to make another one cause u should have a lot of shirt left over.

    Johnny Whitworth: has the hair in the movie business ( and he is good looking ) . I watching ” Limitless ” and I couldn’t stop looking at his hair.

  • jt

    I meant Johnny has the best hair in the movie business.

  • Dan

    Strange choice for a backup career. A psychotherpist? Thot most people in hollywood need one…not want to become one..
    But really like the lifestyle shots….and @jt got to agree with you..his hair is a stand out…
