Boyd Holbrook poses for the cover of Man of the World magazine’s issue No. 14, on sale now.
The 34-year-old actor opened up to the mag about his split from ex-fiancee Elizabeth Olsen, a break up that he refers to as a “divorce.” Here is what he said:
On how Elizabeth broke up with him: “On the same day that my best friend died, I got a call from my girl to tell me it was over.”
On the death of his best friend, photographer David Armstrong: “David was the first person in my life to encourage me. He told me to do everything I wanted to do. No one had ever told me that before. He was a very important figure in my life. Important figure is not even close to what he was.”
On the motorcycle trip up the Chilean coast that saved him: “I was consumed with my own personal depression, my own personal scenario at the time. What happened over the course of the journey was that I started noticing the different types of trees. I started noticing beauty, the details.”
On the roles he’s attracted to: “I like something that’s completely alien to me. I want to escape from my own skin so bad you have no idea. It crawls.”
