Ethan Hawke Covers 'Prestige Hong Kong' July 2012

Ethan Hawke suits up in Burberry on the cover of Prestige Hong Kong‘s July 2012 issue.

Here is what the 41-year-old Total Recall actor had to share with the mag:

On the types of roles he plays in films: “For me, I’ve never really been that confident in my abilities as a shape-changer. There are some actors who can really transform themselves and it can be really breathtaking. For me, I have never really had that ability, and one of the things that I try to do is to be in lots of different kinds of films.”

On his four children: “I try not to be desperate at all with anything with the kids. Having four of them you see how little control you have. When I had my first [with ex-wife Uma Thurman], I thought my parenting was so important but when you have four of them you realize human beings are so completely themselves, they are so unique unto themselves, that it doesn’t have that much to do with you. I mean obviously you want to create a situation where they’re healthy and have a good education. But apart from that you don’t have any control really about whether they’re literary or whether they’re interested in sports.”

On fame: “I’m mostly left alone. Mostly it’s a positive. But I’m not Elvis Presley, I’m not Tom Cruise. There’s another level people aspire to but I think it’s a giant trick. I don’t think its worth aspiring for. I’m very happy with what I have.”
