Joel Kinnaman Regrets Letting Will Smith Give Him a Tattoo

Joel Kinnaman sits down for an interview on Watch What Happens Live in New York City, which aired on Thursday (February 1).

The 38-year-old Altered Carbon actor opened up about letting his Suicide Squad co-star Will Smith give him a tattoo after that film wrapped.

When asked if he regretted letting Will tattoo him, Joel quickly said, “The answer is yes.”

“Absolutely. That was a horrible idea,” Joel continued. “You know, don’t let a 47-year-old man without his reading glasses tattoo you. That is the life lesson. Especially when you have a very talented [tattoo artist] wife. It’s supposed to be a sh-tty tattoo, so that’s what it is.”

Joel Kinnaman Poses for Military-Inspired 'Men's Health' Cover

Joel Kinnaman puts military-inspired fashion on display for the cover of Men’s Health‘s “Guide to Style” issue for March 2018, on newsstands February 6.

Here is what the 38-year-old Altered Carbon actor had to share with the mag:

On his wild past: “I was a wild kid and had a lot of friends who were going in the wrong direction really fast. I didn’t graduate from high school because I was there only 40 percent of the time. So I didn’t have that many things that were pointing any good direction, and acting was the first thing I felt I might actually be good at.”

On the celeb he would like to trade bodies with: “I’d take The Rock‘s sleeve (body) any day. That would be fun—to be the biggest guy in the room.”

On the Swedish military tests he took, although he ultimately skipped service: “…when we got out there, we had all these tests – conditioning tests, strength tests, leadership tests. My competitive spirit kicked in and completely removed any pacifistic tendencies.”

Make sure to see Joel go shirtless and bare his ripped body in the Altered Carbon trailer.

Joel Kinnaman On 'House of Cards' Co-Star Kevin Spacey's Sexual Misconduct Allegations: 'It Wasn't A Shock'

Joel Kinnaman has broken his silence on the many reports of sexual misconduct by his former House of Cards co-star Kevin Spacey.

“It wasn’t a big shock,” the 38-year-old Swedish actor revealed while speaking to host Fredrik Skavlan on Scandinavian talk show Skavlan. “I have five or six friends I know who have told stories about Kevin about when they were young and had just arrived in Hollywood. He tried to… he gave me a very warm welcome in Baltimore.”

“But later, when you learnt that he had supposedly behaved this way with 14-year-olds then it’s like thank you and goodbye,” Joel added.

Joel also addresses his ex-girlfriend’s encounter with Harvey Weinstein: “My ex was going to a meeting with [him] and we had met him the night before – he was very friendly with me – and the two of them had arranged a meeting. She messaged me a little later and said, ‘He’s relocated our meeting to a hotel room.’ And I said, ‘Ok let’s go home. You’re going home now.’”

Pictured: Joel spotted promoting his Netflix series Altered Carbon on Good Morning America on Tuesday (January 30), as well as on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday evening (January 29) in New York City.
