Say it ain’t so!
No one said being a celebrity was an easy thing but on Wednesday Bryan Cranston compared his Hollywood experience to… being pregnant?! LOLz!
“Being [famous] is almost like being a pregnant woman. People think they can just put their hand on your belly and tell you, ‘Oh, you’re going to have a boy!’ It’s like having a complete stranger fondling you. And they have this sensibility where they feel comfortable coming up to you and saying, ‘You know that thing you did? I didn’t like that movie.'”
Well that’s a tad dramatic. HA!
We totally get where the Breaking Bad actor is coming from but we doubt he REALLY comprehends what’s like to carry a child for nine months.
However, the 4 time Emmy winner may be commenting on his famous fate he’s still open to fan interaction.
“They’ll go, ‘I didn’t like your character’s arc.’ But I’m open to all of it. The only failure in art is when you move someone to no emotion whatsoever. I’d rather have people fiercely angry with me so long as they’re moved to some emotion. Even if the emotion was off-target ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ even if I was trying to move the audience one place and they go another. You missed, but at least they felt something.”
Aww! That’s what we love to hear.
Being one of the most successful actors in El Lay, we’re not surprised that the Malcolm in the Middle alum is upfront about the perks of fame too.
In regards to his paycheck in Hollywood, he explained:
“I tell my agency [UTA], ‘Do the best you can.’ They say, ‘We want to tell you about the deal.’ I say, ‘Are you happy?’ ‘I think we could get a little more.’ ‘All right, try.’ I don’t want to appear smug, but I don’t need a job. I’ve been really poor, foreclose-on-your-house poor. And I’ve been rich. Rich is better. But I’m just now starting to get used to the hour of fame. I haven’t been able to let the dust settle yet.”
Where does Walter White end and Bryan begin?? WE KID.
We’re so impressed with the Trumbo star’s candid responses for this interview. Bravo, sir!
Keep doing you.
