James Marsden Regrets Not Signing On for 'Magic Mike'

James Marsden is dubbed the “World’s Handsomest Man” for his cover shot on GQ‘s October 2016 issue, on newsstands everywhere on September 27.

Here is what the 43-year-old Westworld actor had to share with the mag:

On the actor who he admires the most: “Matt Damon has been one of my favorites forever. He always elevates every bit of material, and then you don’t hear a thing about him. It’s like, ‘No, I pretty much wear a T-shirt every day of my life, and I don’t really have any dirt.’ I love that. If you were to ask me what career I would choose, I’d be like, ‘That. One hundred percent.’”

On why he regrets turning down Magic Mike: “Soderbergh is one of my favorites, but I didn’t know if I trusted myself to be good enough in this to not have my two dozen lines end up on the editing-room floor. I’d look like a naked extra in this movie. It’s perfect the way it worked out, but that’s one of the only ones I’m like, Hmm. I didn’t know it was gonna be the massive success that it was.”

On his thoughts on his career: “If it wasn’t me, I’d look at my stuff and go, ‘He’s been in everything. Turn on the cable, and he’s on there. Good movie, bad movie, good movie, bad movie.’ We all want to be great. Of course. Everybody wants that. I’d be lying out of my ass if I told you that I didn’t want to be. When I was younger, I used to feel like, ‘Yeah, there are certain roles out there that may go to other actors who are bigger than me and have more pull.’ And that can be frustrating.”
