Luke Grimes Talks Career With Bradley Cooper For 'Interview' Mag
Here’s what the 32-year-old Magnificent Seven actor had to share with the mag:
On choosing the right movie roles: “I realized that these are big experiences and you go off for long periods of time. And if you’re doing things that you don’t want to be doing or you’re working with people who aren’t making you better and you’re not learning, if things aren’t challenging you, you could be wasting your time. You might be making some money, but you might not be improving as an actor.”
On Liam Neeson helping him quit smoking: “He’s such a nice, lovely guy. The gentle giant…he helped me quit smoking. He was walking around with a toothpick in his mouth one day and I was like, ‘Did you quit?’ And he told me about this book to read, which helped me quit smoking. So, thanks, Liam Neeson. ”
On what he does in his downtime: “Every year it’s different, and I try to do things that are more fulfilling. And, not to sound cliché or anything, but with the downtime that I have and the possible platform that my work could give me, I’d like to figure out a way to give back and make a difference, you know? But right now, this moment, I’m working on my house and playing with my fire pit and kind of just hanging around and making my home feel homey.”
