Crave Online chatted to Armie about Mirror Mirror, The Lone Ranger and even the Justice League movie. Here’s a snippet from the interview.
Have you enjoyed learning the daring do, the fencing for Mirror Mirror and the shooting for Lone Ranger?Yeah. That’s one of the perks of this job, like, not only do you get to go to amazing places all over the world, but I was learning to sword fight and now I’m learning to throw lassos and shoot pistols and ride horses. Who knows, on the next one maybe I’ll learn something new. It’s fun. You get to be a jack of all trades, master of none, but you get to still jack around a bit.
You’ve really blown up in the last year but this could’ve happened even earlier. You were working on Justice League with George Miller. Did you get a taste of this back then if that movie had gone?
I hate to say it, but thankfully it didn’t because I probably wouldn’t have been ready for anything then. I didn’t have the head on my shoulders that I feel I do now. Hopefully I’ll say the same thing five years from now. Hopefully I’m always learning more and stuff like that, but had it happened then, like looking back and knowing what I knew then I wouldn’t have been ready for it. I wouldn’t have been able to handle it. It’s a lot at twenty five years old to be playing the title character of a movie where the budget is humongous and it has to work. That’s a lot of pressure to handle at twenty five, but at the same time you don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. I’m really excited about it, like I get to do things that other twenty five years olds might not get to do. So, I’m having fun and am appreciative as much as possible.
