The 42-year-old actor, who is starring in the Off-Broadway play Clive through this weekend, chatted with the mag about his opinion on Oscar winners.
“People want to turn everything in this country into a competition…it’s clear who the winner is and who the loser is,” Ethan said. “It’s why they like to announce the grosses of movies because it’s a way of saying this one is number one. It’s so asinine even if you look at how many forgettable, stupid, movies have won Oscars and how many mediocre performers have Oscars above their fireplace. Making a priority of chasing these fake carrots and money and dubious accolades, I think it’s really destructive.”
