Douglas Booth Covers 'VMan' Next Gen Issue (Exclusive)
Here is what the 20-year-old Romeo & Juliet actor had to share with the mag:
On his good looks: “It very quickly isn’t flattering to be known only for the way you look. It’s just uninteresting if that’s all people want to talk about. I don’t necessarily want to hear about my talent or my greatness as an actor. You can say I’m sh-t, if you think so. But make it about something I do. The grittier, the dirtier, the worse I can look, the happier I am. It takes the pressure off.”
Noah co-star Emma Watson on his looks: “We met when he was 15 and I remember looking at him and thinking he was offensively attractive. And it’s just gotten worse from there.”
On overcoming nerves about playing Romeo: “[I thought] f-ck it, they’re choosing me because I can bring something fresh to it. Something in-the-moment and real, which is the spirit of Romeo, isn’t it?”
