Ben Barnes' Strict Parents Didn't Allow Him to Watch Mob Movies During Teenage Years

Ben Barnes' Strict Parents Didn't Allow Him to Watch Mob Movies During Teenage Years

Ben Barnes is handsome in a suit on the cover of Bello magazine’s January issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 30-year-old English actor had to share with the mag:

On growing up without watching mob films: “I came to them a bit later. My parents were always really strict about what I could watch when I was a kid, so when I was thirteen and everybody else was watching The Godfather, I wasn’t allowed to.”

On life: “If you’ve earned a lot of money and a lot of people know who you are, maybe to some people that’s making it. To me, that’s not what it’s about; it’s about having things out there that I’m proud of.”

On his mini-series Sons Of Liberty: “This is the action-packed physical visceral exciting spirit of the era version. I for one certainly didn’t realize that Sam Adams, George Washington, John Adams, [and] Thomas Jefferson were all contemporaries- I’m sure most Americans maybe know that, but the idea of seeing how they all banned together in an Oceans Eleven kind of way in this gunpowder heist was incredible.”
