Sam Rockwell Opens Up About Growing Up in Hollywood

Sam Rockwell is on the cover of CR Men‘s Issue 8, out on March 5.

Here’s what the Vice actor had to say…

On being a good actor: “A good actor is usually pretty neurotic.”

On George Bush: “I saw him as someone who was just in over his head.”

On playing Bush: “It’s daunting playing someone that famous, because everyone has an opinion on how he talks…But Bush has an Elvis Presley thing with his lips, and that was key for me.”

On growing up in Hollywood: “I’m probably a little eccentric in that I grew up not unlike Chris Walken and Bob Fosse in the entertainment business a little bit. I grew up around theater and showbiz people, and when you’re brought up in a circus life, it makes you a little off-center. But if you talk to my girlfriend, I’m probably pretty predictable.”
