Taylor Kitsch Covers 'Los Angeles Confidential' Summer 2012

Taylor Kitsch and his Savages director, Oliver Stone, take the cover of Los Angeles Confidential‘s Summer issue.

Here’s what the 31-year-old actor had to share:

On finding success in Hollywood: “I struggled quite a bit in New York. I don’t know what it was, but there was something there that kept me from quitting. Maybe I’m stubborn. Maybe it’s the challenge. I just loved studying at the time. I loved the exploratory part of it. It was very therapeutic for me for what I was dealing with personally. I loved being surrounded by people [who] are going to make you better – you’re going to grow through that experience. That’s a real high for me.”

On staying connected to the person he used to be: “I don’t think that’ll ever be a problem for me. I think having a late start and a good sense of self before any of this crap, you see things a lot clearer. If I was 21, I could tell you that I’d get wrapped up in it. But I think just that struggle makes things a lot clearer. Right now – ironically – I feel like, you’re just going to get better and better, and keep on this track, hopefully, working with great people. I feel like I have so much more to keep offering.”

Savages, co-starring Aaron Johnson, Salma Hayek, Blake Lively, and John Travolta, hits theaters July 6!

    I don’t get why they keep pushing this guy and he keeps getting movies. He’s OK. Nothing special. But he is definitely small screen, not big screen.

  • ColinG

    He is hawt, all he needs is a good role and not such a deep voice in all his roles and he is fine, deep voice in the sack is ok ;P

  • Johnathon

    Success in Hollywood? Are you joking? So far all his movies this year have been the biggest flops of the year.

    Taylor’s growing his hair back? Yes!!

    Considering that “John Carter” and “Battleship” have not been big box-office hits, Taylor needs to look for better scripts. His nine lives of a cat in Hollywood are ticking away. Good Luck to him.

  • Dave Franco

    He will always be known as TIM RIGGINS. But I agree with dave from Canada.

  • Yummy

    That’s my man<3 He's fvckin' sexy

  • Elle

    I certainly wouldn’t say he’s found success in Hollywood. He seems to be box office poison.

  • Jodi

    The role that he needs is Christian from Fifty Shades of Grey
    So Hot !!

  • Just Sayin

    No one knows who he is except the FNL fans. Choosing meatier scripts, like Savages is a good way to get his name and face out there for the general public, not headlining these ridiculous sci-fi bombs that were doomed from the moment pen met paper.

  • Jennifer

    looks weird without his facial hair

  • Julie

    He should play Finnick in “Catching Fire” and he should do something that embodies both drama and comedy, like his character on FNL. That really showed his talents. His next movie is going to be GREAT though, it’s based on a Navy Seal’s life and it’s with Pete Berg. Sounds like it’s going to be more of drama, than some “action flick” with action IN it.
