Walking Dead's Norman Reedus Refused to Play Jennifer Love Hewitt's Boyfriend in 'Heartbreakers' - Find Out Why!
Here’s what the 45-year-old The Walking Dead star had to share with the mag:
On being offered a role in Heartbreakers alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt: “When that came around at the time, my agents at the time were, “They like you for this part, and it’s a Jennifer Love Hewitt movie.” And I’m like, “Well, what do I do?” And they’re, “You’re her boyfriend,” And I go, “Well, do I rape her? Do I kill her? What do I do?” And they go, “You’re her sweet boyfriend.” And I was like, “No! Absolutely not!” But yeah, I just assumed I had to rape and kill her.”
On rooting for the bad guy: “I mean, even today, if I watch Spider-man or something, I root for the bad guy. I like the Joker better than I like Batman, you know what I mean? I’m still like that.”
On not fitting in: “I like feeling like I don’t fit in, and I’ve always liked feeling like I don’t fit in, and I’m perfectly cool with it.”
On dating models: “I’ve been with several. Not any to the extent that… Helena [Christensen] and I were pretty serious.”
