James Marsden Looks So Handsome For 'Los Angeles Confidential' Men Issue

James Marsden is handsome in a tuxedo while taking the cover of Los Angeles Confidential‘s Men’s Issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 41-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On having the itch for acting: “I always did goofy accents or characters from Saturday Night Live- that was the ultimate for me. I never had the mind for going into finance or selling insurance- it was all about doing goofy cartoon voices or little bits and skits. I felt like an outcast, because being an actor in Oklahoma- you can’t really make a living off that, I decided when I was 19, after three semesters of college, to just pack up and move to LA and give it a shot.”

On his breakthrough role as Cyclops in X-Men and beyond: “That was something that definitely took me to another level, but I never felt like I was doing what I was best at. Beyond X-Men, my choices were more about showing people that I could do comedy. That was like, ‘Whoa-not only can he make fun of himself, but he can sing!’ [Referencing Enchanted] Then Hairspray followed right after it, another one that [showed people], ‘Oh, he can be funny!’”

On always being cast as the pretty boy: “When I was younger, I was always going to be cast as the preppy, good-looking guy at school. It was a good thing when I was 19. That helped me get work, and within those opportunities, I tried to show that there was more ability…more talent. My main struggle was I never thought myself as the cool guy because I wasn’t that guy in high school…I see myself more as James Bond’s goofy younger brother, as opposed to James Bond.”
