Theo James Vows to Never Have a Social Media Account

Theo James is sexy in black and white for the new cover of Flaunt magazine.

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

On not using social media: “I don’t have it and I never will. Other actors I know are really good at it and they rock and roll it, but it’s not for me. If I post a picture of us having a drink now and get loads of views or comments and stuff, then suddenly you’re quite exposed and you’re in a world of work. I just like being present.”

On being present: “I think people struggle with that now, being present in a time and place. There’s a lot of talk about mindfulness now and that’s about the ability to be present and not constantly affected by erroneous sources around you-that stimulus through a computer or through worries. It’s about being fully present.”

On his role as Father Gaunt in The Secret Scripture: “It’s about a priest, about his faith, and obviously all the history of Irish Catholicism with all the abuse of priest power. But also it’s about his sense of self and what it means to deny things. He basically considers himself a good man throughout the whole book but then he realizes he is culpable for the abuse because he hasn’t really faced it.”

    Very good looking and I still remember him from Downton, Season 1. Too bad about the name change from the “ethnic” to the bland, whiter-sounding name. Hey, we have little problem with Keanu and Schwarzenegger, right?
