Here’s what the 41-year-old actor had to share with the publication:
On the tabloids: “I no longer let that stuff in. I honestly don’t know and don’t care what’s being written about me. If people want to buy into it, then they can. I just try to live a normal life now. Being free to go out – to a restaurant, to the theatre, or even just to a gardening centre – is my right. That’s what living is. So that’s what I do.
On choosing roles: “I tend to think of it in terms of Shakespeare. You can’t play Prospero in your twenties. And you can’t play Lear. In your twenties, you play Romeo, you play Hamlet. And maybe you progress to Coriolanus, to Henry V. They’re like hoops you have to jump through. Keep going, and you’ll get to Prospero, you’ll get to Lear. But you can’t rush it.”
On women in Hollywood: “The plight of women over a certain age is a bit of a running gag in the movie industry. Not a very funny one, admittedly.”
