Here’s what the 38-year-old Annihilation star had to share with the mag:
On if he’s committed to another Star Wars movie: “This is my understanding. I don’t really read what I sign. [laughs] But from what I’ve been told…”
On why he lives in New York and not Los Angeles: “I just feel anxious when I’m there. And I just get annoyed with myself more. It’s not L.A., it’s me. There are definitely a lot of tempting things about it. It’s like the ring in Lord of the Rings—you put it on and you’re like, ‘Whaooo, no!’”
On his decision to marry Elvira Lind: “Tons of reasons. She’s Danish—she’s not a citizen, and she was very pregnant, and there was an element of figuring out “Well, where are we going to be?” And us wanting to be a family unit a bit more. Also, the Danes, they don’t really believe in marriage. I think it has a lot to do with the equality of the sexes over there. Marriage doesn’t mean anything financially, because the state takes care of people. So the marriage itself becomes less important. But, you know, at the time, right before it happened, my mom was ill, and so I saw her carrying my child, bathing my sick mom—seeing her do that, I just thought: I want to be with this person forever and ever. And I just wanted to take that extra step as well. And so my mom passed in February and we got married in March and our son was born in April.”
