Aaron Paul: 'GQ' August Feature!

Aaron Paul: 'GQ' August Feature!

Aaron Paul shows off some skin in this new feature from the August 2012 issue of GQ magazine, on newsstands July 24.

Here’s what the 32-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On the effect Breaking Bad has on him: “We’re only given one script at a time. I’m always dying to read the next episode. And I go to set even when I’m off, just to see the thing played out.”

On working with Bryan Cranston: “I’ll be honest: I was a decent actor before. I’m not going to beat myself up, but I—you can always learn. But after working on Breaking Bad, it’s like going to an extreme acting workshop every day. Working with Bryan, he’s just—he’s on such a different level than me.”

On his fiance, Lauren Parsekian: “That’s taking up a lot of my time, which is so fun. She’s the greatest woman that has ever existed—no offense to other women on this planet, but she is hands-down the best. Well, we’d met at Coachella, became friends. And then a year later, we fell in love at Coachella. We ran off together at Coachella. You know, first kiss on the ferris wheel sort of thing.”

On wanting to do comedy: “I would love to do that. But the tragedy of it all is that I’m not funny at all. I’m not. So if I try and be funny, it just comes off like—I look like an idiot.”

    lol. To be honest, I lost respect for him when I read “I’m a decent actor.” Everyone knows you don’t big yourself up! x

    Love him! He’s a great actor!

  • Bikey

    Is he kidding?? His character has delivered some of the best openly funny moments on Breaking Bad (along with comedy genius Bob Odenkirk)! Kudos to Aaron for being such a humble, GOOD actor!!:)

  • Zara

    I love Aaron-he’s hot, not full of himself and I can’t wait to see where his career takes him after BB! I agree with Bikey, Aaron has made me LOL countless times on BB, he plays the hapless buffoon to a tee:)

    Um, Larissa, you really need to read his comment in full, as JJ printed it, before saying something negative. It’s obvious you didn’t read it because you didn’t even quote it correctly.
