The smoking hot Aaron Taylor-Johnson is finally getting the recognition he deserves thanks to his Golden Globe-winning role in Nocturnal Animals, and in his new spread for New York magazine he reminds us that he has a ripped bod that will not quit! In the accompanying interview Aaron, 26, talks career success, marrying a woman who remembers taking the trolley to the five-and-dime store, his Academy Award snub, and MOAR!
Aaron Taylor-Johnson's wife, Sam Taylor-Johnson, is almost double his age and is most famous for dropping the Heart of the Ocean necklace into the sea in Titanic. I'm just kidding. Making fun of women's ages in Hollywood is just getting old at this point. Like, Sam. I feel like being married to an older woman means that Aaron is down to clown below the belt, and I wouldn't be surprised if he's into some kinky shit. Which reminds me (sorry).
In his spread for New York Magazine, the stunner sports some scruff that you just want to get all up in, a little bit of chest fuzz, a Costco-sized pack of abs, and those EYES. Wowza. Here's the jizz-st of the interview: Via Vulture
On how he's GLAD that he wasn't nominated for an Oscar after winning the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in Nocturnal Animals:
There was relief when my wife told me that I hadn’t been nominated. Coming home from the Globes with an award was brilliant, but I’ve been promoting Nocturnal for six months. As an actor, you prefer to put that kind of energy into something creative. It was good to finally step off the train. You do kind of go, I’m losing my mind.
On the media coverage of his marriage to Sam in 2013 and how he's not interested in being leading man material:
The attention was intrusive. But having to deal with that early in my career probably got me to a place where I can more quickly just go, ‘Oh, fuck it’ instead of wanting to rip someone’s head off for asking questions I don’t like…I’ll never be Jennifer Lawrence or Tom Cruise…someone who can hold a movie and then be charming and charismatic doing promotion. I haven’t got what they’ve got. But at least I’m now comfortable just being myself.
On still not thinking he's worthy of good roles and saying that Mark Rylance is almost as old as his wife:
Whenever I read a script, I start recasting the role that I might play. I’m like, ‘God, this should be played by Domhnall Gleeson, not me.’ I was reading something recently and thought Mark Rylance should be in it instead of me. Then someone was like, ‘The part is a bit younger than Mark Rylance.’
