Michael Keaton Didn't Expect Such Positive Reactions to 'Birdman'

Michael Keaton rocks a maroon suit on the cover of Prestige Hong Kong‘s January 2015 cover, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 63-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On his new film Birdman: “I knew it would get a reaction. But the amount, the quantity and the quality of the reaction is unbelievable. Not just the people in the entertainment business, but just people.”

On growing up in Western Pennsylvania: “Being funny was fun. But when I was a kid I used to play. Like really play. I took my play very seriously. Just playing out in the woods, or playing cowboys or playing army. Everything I did, I was intense about it.”

On what he wants to do in the future: “I did Shakespeare once and there’s part of me that wants to do a little bit of that again because it was so challenging. Not to say I’m this great Shakespearean actor, because I’m not – but it was so fun to try. I’d like some minor part. I’m too lazy to take on a major role. And something with music in it. I’ve been thinking about this for a long time. I have this idea that it would be fun to do a musical, but I don’t know what it is yet.”
