Taylor Kitsch on Sacrificing Love for Career: 'It's My Choice'

Taylor Kitsch sports a clean cut and denim jacket while riding a motorcycle in this photo for his feature in the July 2015 issue of Elle magazine, on newsstands June 23.

Here’s what the 34-year-old True Detective actor had to share with the mag:

On getting his start as a model: “It’s not like I was this mainstream f-ckin’ runway model. I wasn’t working. I lived in an apartment in Spanish Harlem with no electricity, and then I lost that, so I’d just catch the blue train. It skips a lot of stops at night, and then it stays up at 181st Street, I think. So I’d sleep there. And the security guy would come on and be like, ‘Get out.’ And I’d get out.”

On True Detective: “I didn’t know True was going to be near as emotional. This season β€” f-ck. I could feel Paul [his character] seeping into me. I’d be doing something or acting a certain way and think, Oh, this isn’t me.”

On being single: “You sacrifice so f-ckin’ much [as an actor]. How do you build a relationship with a gal and then tell her, ‘Hey, I gotta do press all over the world. I expect you to have the same feelings you have now in eight weeks.’ And that’s not me playing the violin. It’s my choice. But it better be worth sacrificing for.”
