Viggo Mortensen Says It's A 'Particularly Good Time' for His Film 'Green Book'

Viggo Mortensen is dapper in a suit as he hits the red carpet at the SFFILM Presents: A Tribute To Viggo Mortensen in Green Book held at the Castro Theatre on Tuesday (November 20) in San Francisco, Calif.

The 60-year-old actor sat down for a Q&A panel to talk about Green Book, which also stars Mahershala Ali and hits theaters today (November 21).

“Audiences will go see it and something will permeate,” Viggo expressed (via Screen Daily). “Any time would be a good time for a movie like this to come out, but this is a particularly good time. It’s the thing that’s so hard to do — socially relevant and profound but it goes down smoothly and percolates into you.”

“‘Don’t go looking for medals, always accept them, never wear them.’ It’s cool. It’s a nice honour,” Viggo added about the award buzz for the film. “I think that the positive reactions to Green Book, and to what Pete [Farrelly] has accomplished, are deserved and correct. That’s my opinion. I think it’s a special movie.”
