Here’s what the 29-year-old The Riot Club star had to share with the mag:
On his father Jeremy Irons‘ 2013 HuffPost Live statement that the legalization of same-sex marriage might open the door for interfamilial unions: “I remember thinking, You don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re thinking through a problem out loud. I know my father, and his views are similar to mine: As long as you don’t harm anyone else, what you do and who you love are nobody’s business. He has since clarified as far as I understand, and truth be told, if you pushed him to explain what he was talking about, I don’t think he’d actually know.”
On his rolemodels: “Philip Seymour Hoffman was always a genius, but no one gave a sh*t about him in the beginning. He laid a foundation of work that went up and up until he could get a movie made. De Niro won’t even have his first two films on his resume, because he’s ashamed of them. I understand that kind of trajectory, and it takes time. And learning.”
On what he hopes audiences take away from The Riot Club: “I think if The Riot Club does anything, it’ll make people google the Bullingdon Club and ask questions like, ‘Do these men truly, honestly represent the values of the people?’ I’m not so sure. Our film has made certain people angry, and it’s also generated applause. And I think that’s exactly what we wanted and expected.”
