Joel Edgerton Isn't Interested In Being a Movie Star

Joel Edgerton shows off his scruffy beard in a feature in Wild magazine’s Winter Radiant issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 40-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On being an actor: “Some people are really good at playing the movie star, they are really good at cultivating that mystique, but I’m not really into that. Actors are excused from a lot of things, and we get away with a lot. We are allowed to do what we want and people are so nice to us, like we are sailors in port just for a night. They let you to the front of the line and it’s weird! And I find it equally interesting and exciting as it is disgusting and bizarre. The more and more I do it the stranger it is. It’s great, but it’s weird.”

On getting into character for his roles: “I take it very seriously. There is a great empathetic connection you need to have to the people you play. I think that once the camera is rolling, anything is possible, there is a great freedom in it. The more I work the more I’m interested in things that require a great challenge. If you can have those opportunities then they are going to be much richer, and terrifying. I am always terrified before a job starts.”

On what he likes to do when he isn’t working: “I’m getting older, I travel around a lot. I spend a good half of my year in cities that I didn’t know I was going to be in until a month earlier. It’s lovely, but they aren’t my home. I’m hardly in Sydney and I’m really hardly ever in L.A. I go home and I feel like it’s all too rushed. I think I want to take some more time out, and that’s not to say I’ll be lazy because I’ll write and all that, but I want to take the opportunity to enjoy things more. I want to sit down in one space for longer. The last couple of times I’ve been in Sydney I’ve had to race around and touch all my friends and I haven’t been able to sit
down and have a proper conversation…”

Christian Bale 'Meant No Disrespect' to George Clooney When He Told Him to 'Stop Whining' About Fame!

Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton get buddy-buddy for an official Academy Members Screening of Exodus: Gods and Kings hosted by The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences on Monday (December 8) in New York City.

The 40-year-old actor appeared on Good Morning America earlier in the day to promote the movie.

Christian recently made headlines for telling George Clooney to “stop whining” about fame.

“I was scratching my head when I heard that,” Christian explained to E! News after the quote was published. “I said, ‘When on earth would I had said that?’ I’ve got immense respect for him and I can’t even begin to imagine the invasion of his privacy. Our lives don’t even begin to compare. He’s a true movie star. I’m just somebody who was lucky to get a job.

“So, yeah, it was possibly just a well-intentioned edit,” Christian added. “But certainly, I never meant any disrespect whatsoever.”
