Aaron Taylor-Johnson: I'm 'Constantly' Wanting to Give Up Acting for Fatherhood

Aaron Taylor-Johnson: I'm 'Constantly' Wanting to Give Up Acting for Fatherhood

Aaron Taylor-Johnson is looking dapper in this new photo shoot for Mr Porter!

Here’s what the 26-year-old actor had to share:

On his relationship with wife Sam, 50: “I don’t really analyse our relationship. I just know that it works. I just feel secure and loved and safe. We have this very deep connection. We’re just in synch.”

On feminism: “I’m happy to say I’m a feminist. Being a feminist is just believing in equal rights. Man, woman, gay, straight, black, white – we’re all in it together. When [my daughters] are young women, they’re going to be ready. I mean, their mum is one of the strongest, most independent women I know. A role model.”

On acting vs. fatherhood: “I get more fulfillment from being a father than I do from being an actor. I’m still constantly wanting to give it up.”

    i love his relationship with sam, i always used to think he was far too young to make a decision like that, but theyre still together after all these years. husband goals.

  • Shell

    I totally agree. No matter how ppl try and change facts, he was an adult capable of using his own mind when they got together so why she is constantly painted as this desperate woman who’s kidnapped him againt his will is something I can’t understand. You only have to see him talking about her in interviews or see their photos on instagram etc to see they are genuinly happy they are.

  • tom

    by his mid thirties he’l dump his wife and find a young woman

  • Do Tell

    Actually, that probably won’t happen. He’s young and he may not have ever been a run-around type. That’s a huge plus in a marriage. Also, he said they have a deep connection, so their relationship is likely based on things other than just the physical–although their physical connection is also powerful, I’m sure. All that together makes it all stronger.

    Finally, they have 2 children together. So, that is out of the way for him, fulfilling his fatherhood desires.

    “I get more fulfillment from being a father than I do from being an actor. I’m still constantly wanting to give it up.” So fucking quit then, moron. You’re not doing us any favors by being in movies. And what a stupid thing to even ask someone; “excuse me, sir, how do you feel about your job vs. your children?” Really?

    Funny, women get asked this all the time..

  • tom

    He’ll dump her for sure, happens all the time.

  • Do Tell

    True, it happens often. But we’ll have to wait and see.

    Handsome Maxwell Caulfield stayed with his “old lady” all these years. They had no kids together. I thought it not possible, but they are still going strong.

  • Squeegee

    Aaron Taylor Johnson can be good in a good movie like Nocturnal Animals he was horrible in Godzilla

  • Cassie Molly

    He was only 18 and barely legal when they started dating.

  • dee

    Yes therefore *still* a legal adult capable of making his own decisions. And the way he speaks in his interviews, the choices hes made as an actor and his views on feminism and the world is clearly a huge influence from sam taylor johnson, things have literally only gotten better for him. i mean he even won a golden globe recently. this was clearly the best decision he couldve made for himself.
