Here is what the 31-year-old Blackhat actor had to share with the mag:
On being protective of younger brother Liam: “I’ve watched Liam do things I did at his age, like being in relationships he shouldn’t be in, or being reckless just to prove a point. And I had no empathy. My mom had to remind me I was the same way.”
On how older brother Luke helped save his career: “Back when I was still on the soap, I became incredibly insecure and full of anxiety because I didn’t know if I was any good. I spent years being angsty, constantly telling people I wasn’t just part of a soap opera, that I was a real artist. And I remember Luke sort of snapping, telling me to shut up, that he was sick of hearing it.”
On getting partying out of his system before getting to Hollywood: “The fame, the parties, the women—I did that stuff back home. I got away with a lot more over there. Then I came here and sort of started over.”
