Jim Sturgess: 'Nylon Guys' Magazine Feature

Jim Sturgess looks dapper for his feature in the October/November 2012 issue of Nylon Guys magazine.

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

On reading the script for the film Cloud Atlas: “I read it in the evening and went to bed thinking about it, and then I woke up and instantly had to reread it again. It was totally baffling, but I knew it was something amazing.”

On make-up tests for Cloud Atlas: “Ben [Whishaw] and I came over to Berlin, and I remember we both walked into separate rooms dressed pretty identically, in jeans and T-shirts. Then I reappeared a few hours later as a Korean man, and he appeared as a woman.”

On having music as a priority: I know a lot of actors who just sort of sit around and drink a lot of coffee and get married. I never feel like I’m desperate for the next job, which I think helps. Acting is weird. You have to be given a reason to do it. You can’t just prance around in your bedroom and do it…well, you can! And I’m sure people do. But music is totally separate from that. You can sit in your room and play guitar or the keyboard or whatever.”

    How nice for him that he has the luxury to not feel desperate for his next job. Not everyone is as privileged to be able to just sit around and live off all the money you make from just doing one movie a year.
