Ben Barnes Covers Fault's Summer 2013 Issue - Exclusive!

Ben Barnes is smoldering in Diesel Black Gold on the cover of Fault magazine’s Summer 2013 Issue 15, on newsstands July 15, which has been provided exclusively to

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

On feeling pressure playing beloved fictional roles:
“Absolutely I feel that pressure, not least because I have usually been a fan myself of the source material that these characters have featured in. I have learned that you certainly can’t please everyone as the beauty of a great novel is that everyone will picture their heroes or anti-heroes differently….I have definitely been guilty of accusing the director on set saying, ‘but that’s not how it is in the book!’ That rarely goes down well”

On playing a gangster in God Only Knows: “This was maybe my favorite role I’ve played. I have rarely been afforded the opportunity to play the tough guy so it was very rewarding. I was very involved with the script and definitely got an opportunity to re-work scenes with the writer and director [James Mottern]… I had tattoos and a goatee (of sorts) and it was interesting to walk around Providence, Rhode Island and see the reaction i would get from people I met. People definitely look at you differently or more suspiciously based on image.”

    Nice to see this beautiful man on this site again.

    Simply ugly. Would have been nice to see the beautiful man he used to be, but unfortunately the cigarette spoils everything and you can’t even see his face. I don’t understand why fashion and movie businesses admire smoking so much. Smoking kills!

  • Tanya

    I’m so excited to buy this magazine. I love Ben so much. I even went down to Providence when he was filming God only knows. Kay90, don’t be hateful. Ben has always smoked. So does my husband. People know it’s unhealthy but what can you do??

  • JimJamJames

    @Tanya: Agreed Tanya! Some people choose to smoke – even if it is bad for them – and it’s their right to do so! Why the hateful comments??

    Already pre-ordered my copy! :)

    My boy!

  • Kay_90

    Wow, Just Jared apparently doesn’t allow anti-smoking comments because my reply (a polite one) to Tanya was not published. So sad.

  • Sam

    omg I LOVE him!! *_*

  • Jiselle

    @Kay90 yeah smoking kills but you’re overreacting. relax.

    @ Tanya
    I’m not saying he hasn’t smoked before. Of course he has. We know that, and his skin reveals that too. I’m just so odd I prefer seeing his face to a cigarette/hand covering most of his face. I prefer not seeing tobacco ads. I hate the way fashion and movie industries admire smoking and by doing so encourage young people to smoke. Photos like this and stories suggesting that someone is smouldering and cool when he smokes give a wrong impression to young people. I used to think Ben – who is said to be intelligent – had made a conscious decision not to “advertise” smoking to young people. But obviously there was no such decision or he changed his mind last year when he started to smoke in photoshoots. Sadly. I hope you can keep your husband for many, many years. I truly do. I have lost a loved one very young because of smoking. If critizising smoking and tobacco advertising is hateful, then I’m hateful, and proudly so.

    @Jiselle I hope you’ll never need to find out how relaxing it is to lose a loved one.

    I don’t smoke, dont like people who smoke but man he looks hot when he does! :)

  • Aviana

    Its weird to see a magazine showing someone smoking. Not hating or anything just been conditioned to it been edited out. Brave choice.

  • Tanya

    Yes he does LiLi

    Smoking? Yeah… that just turned me off.
