On the internet: “I lost my mind because of the internet. I’d read 30 positive things and one bad thing, then I’d harbor that bad thing. It drove me crazy.”
On his dating life: “Dating is something I’ll never be able to do, as in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I’ve impacted that person’s life and they’ll soon realize it. A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think of me.” He also admitted to signing up on Tinder but nobody thought that it was him, so nobody swiped right.
Opening up about his struggles: “I don’t want to sound high and mighty, and I only know my story. There’s a theory that actors should live like monks. You stay private, you make a great movie, then that’s all people see and you’re not a product of your struggle. But if you’re comfortable sharing your story, celebrate it. Most days I wake up excited now. Fifty push-ups, it’s a tradition I got from Batman. Once you’ve done 50 push-ups, you’re not thinking about anything else.”
About always being shirtless in films: “Take your shirt off. Know you’re a douchebag. Make an idiot of yourself. Then reap the benefits. What you get by doing this is street cred, then you get to work with great directors.I need to meet somebody face to face, then I can earn that dramatic cool role, that good role.”
Like I said this interview is really a great piece about Zac and shows that he isn’t some idiot actor. He is putting thought into his roles and what he is doing with his career.
Back to his Tinder moment though? I mean I can’t blame those people but I feel like I would have to swipe right if I ever saw Zac pop up on Tinder. Might as well give it a shot!
I really hope that Zac eventually gets the more dramatic roles that he craves because he does deserve them.
