Cannes 2012: Best Actor Winner Mads Mikkelsen Talks Vinterberg's "The Hunt," T-Mobile Film "Move On," Playing a Psycho Husband

BY MATT MUELLER | MAI 27, 2012 4:29 PM

Mads Mikkelsen was in Cannes to promote two projects. The first, Competition entry, "The Hunt," marks a strong return to form for ex-Dogme practitioner Thomas Vinterberg and features a potent performance from the Danish actor as a mild-mannered kindergarten teacher whose life is turned upside down by an arbitrary accusation that he’s sexually abusing children. As you can see from the Q & A below, the last thing Mikkelson expected was to take home the Best Actor prize for "The Hunt."

The second is "Move On," a road movie with a difference that will be shot across eight European countries in 30 days this summer. The difference is that the production is being funded by mobile phone company T-Mobile and that user interaction will be encouraged to steer and shape the narrative during the production, with participants in each country able to offer up suggestions about locations, casting and music and the best incorporated into the shoot.

Directed by another Dane, Asger Leth ("Man On A Ledge"), "Move On" will go out in eight six-to-10 minute webisodes before being cut together into a feature. Mikkelsen has been cast as the lead, an “international man of mystery” attempting to deliver the mysterious contents of a silver suitcase to a shadowy Mr. Big and encountering thrills, danger and women along the way. Leth has mentioned the vibe of Drive as an inspiration.

After we finish chatting, Mikkelsen was supposed to head straight to Bucharest to start shooting "The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman" opposite Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood, taking on another villainous role of the sort that keep coming his way in the wake of "Casino Royale." And it’s just been announced that he’s in discussions too for the key baddie role in "Thor 2." But obviously, Mikkelson turned up Sunday night for the closing night award ceremony.

"The Hunt" is getting a great reception but were you worried before you came how it would be received?

I think Thomas made a fantastic film and he deserves every good response that he’s getting. We’ve been over the moon but not super surprised because we knew it was good. But we’re happy that people saw it the way we did. So far it’s been a journey of joy.

Your performance, too, is deservedly being singled out.

Thank you, that means a lot. There have been a lot of compliments. It’s a tough theme. The theme is an unbearable one so the fact that there’s a lot of talk about it means hopefully we can sell it and people can eventually see it.

Thomas had to leave Cannes early because his wife’s about to deliver and you’re leaving too. Will anyone be here on Sunday if there’s an award in the offing?

The buzz is good but there are 21 films in Competition and they’re all good so if we come in 2nd, 3rd or 21st, we don’t care because we’re in the group of tremendous directors and tremendous films. We know we’re up against some big boys. If we get something, we will be really happy; if not, we’re still really happy.

So why did you get involved in "Move On"?

I like Asger, we’ve known each other for many years. And there’s a rock ‘n’ roll feeling to this. People out there will be part of it which is going to be new to all of us. They’re not going to take us in a direction that is totally fucked up but they might come with some inputs I like: ‘That’s not bad, let’s try that.’ It’s hard to have that kind of openness in a film but we will try it and I’m sure something will come out of that will be surprising for us.

Do you think it can be something more than a corporate branding extension?

Well, that’s our mission. I don’t think any of us have the ambition of just standing there and become spokespeople. We will find something that we enjoy; whether it’s going to be a solid film narrative or just something that’s cool to watch, I don’t know yet.

Who are you playing in "The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman"? (Spoiler alert)

Shia and Evan play a young couple who find each other, and I turn up fairly late in the story and am the husband of the young girl. She has not seen me for two years and to put it mildly, my character is a bit on the jealous side.

Is he the kind of guy who would give your character in "The Hunt" a hard time?

Oh, my character in Jagten ("The Hunt") would not be alive if this guy showed up. He’s a real psycho.

I’ve spotted your photo in a few Cannes party shots… having a good time here?

I’ve been working! I’ve been selling myself – in certain ways – and the film. I went to one party yesterday, but the other times I’ve been here with no film in the Competition have been much more unhealthy for my liver than this time.

A brief news item regarding Cannes:
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/cannes-film-festival-michael-haneke-amour-nanni-moretti-mads-mikkelsen-329985

Just after Michael Haneke's "Amour" won the Palme d'Or, the winners and jury ended the fest in style with a cocktail.

CANNES -- The Cannes Film Festival ended its 12-day 65th birthday celebration on Sunday night with a dinner and party following the fest's traditional closing ceremonies. Palme d'Or winner, Amour director Michael Haneke joined the world's film industry to fete his second Cannes win.
our editor recommends


"What can I say? I'm happy. It's always a surprise - a nice surprise," Haneke told THR of his second Palme d'Or win after 2009's The White Ribbon.

"I'm very happy with my jury," Nanni Moretti told THR after the ceremony. After jury duty, the Italian director will work on a new script, but he is keeping its subject under wraps. "I won't even tell my own son what it's about!" he said in his native Italian. "It's been one big hurricane of interviews and text messages," Best Actor prize winner Mads Mikkelsen told THR, adding: "I'm very very proud and I'm very emotional. I felt very humbled."

Mikkelsen was all smiles at the cocktail party despite having to board a plane to Bucharest just a few hours later, where he'll start shooting The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. "The film is awesome, so I can't wait to start shooting it," he said.

So how does his Best Actor nod compare to other awards? "It's the Oscars for 14 days," he said of the Cannes festival.


Cinefondation and short films Jury president Jean-Pierre Dardenne arrived early and was courteous enough to warn friends to avoid a large puddle just outside the entrance.

Juror Diane Kruger stole a kiss from beau Joshua Jackson before heading to a seated VIP section with fellow jurors Emmanuelle Devos and Jean Paul Gaultier. Gaultier joked with actress Virginie Elfira and friends, "I was trying to pull an Angelina Jolie!" as he lifted up the long black skirt he was wearing as everyone laughed.

Gaultier also chatted with Kylie Minogue, complete with mid-conversation musical interlude. Minogue was in town after presenting Leos Carax' Holy Motors in Competition and also working the stage at amfAR's gala dinner and auction.

Champagne wasn't lacking at the soiree where guests also enjoyed gourmet fare like mini lobster-filled tarts, stuffed zucchini flowers, tomato gaspacho and very French foie-gras stuffed macarons.

Despite the rainy night, guests enjoyed the relaxed evening.

Plus, said Mikkelsen, "I love the rain. It makes people go inside and watch films, so it's great."



Really, how insulting for him to say it's like the Oscars, Cannes is so much better than the Oscars..... Rolling Eyes
And he made it quite clear he doesn't watch films, but prefers the pubs!

Translated article:
Mads gets a blowjob at Cannes

During his stay in Cannes was the delicious actress close to a male colleague
By Ria Pedersen and Lisa Bondesen Sunday 27th May 2012 17:31
SEOGHØR.DK Tonight is mildly interesting for an actor-hewn Mads Mikkelsen and his colleagues have played in Thomas Vinterberg's "Raiders".
It is tonight, deciding on the Danish film wins the coveted golden palm in Cannes.

46-year-old Mads Mikkelsen is also in play as the recipient of the Year Award Actor - for his performance in that film.

Mads Mikkelsen was with Thomas Vinterberg and the team of actors from "Raiders" on a visit to the French film studios. And although it was at work, Mads had time to fool around - especially with actor Thomas Bo Larsen, who also has a role in the film.

At a café celebrated Thomas Vinterberg's 43-year birthday in high spirits. Thomas Bo "compulsion" even Mads Mikkelsen to deliver a blowjob at the table. Fortunately, kept the two gentlemen both all my clothes on ...







Ah, well, they both look like they enjoyed it.... Laughing

BIF Shocked

I thought that that was your job at Cannes, but the unusually chilly weather just now caused you to skip it this time! HEHE! Laughing
Why a minder? Probably because he really doesn't know very much French...

Well, I would've gone, but we were experiencing temperatures of 29C whilst Cannes definitely wasn't! Laughing My friend in Grasse said it rained more in May than all winter, which we in the UK could say for April this year. We were suffering a drought before April. But we had scorching weather here during Cannes, unusual for Cannes to be so wet and windy in May.

Anyway, I felt the comment implied he had a minder to take care of him incase he got so inebriated or to prevent him from getting so inebriated...? Not sure. Or to keep an eye out for secret film cameras (remember video from last year that made it to youtube)???
I don't think you need French there, it is a tourist area, and most people in bars, hotels, etc, will speak some English, plus he has been practicing some French whilst there. Also, I doubt whether he'd bother with a minder when he was surrounded by friends and work colleagues, as well as the wife for a while....Seems pointless, and I certainly didn't see anyone in any photos or videos lurking, but I suppose their job is to stay out of the way....So, I really don't know about this...But yes, it definitely should've been my job. I'd have got him merry, got the wife lost somewhere, and well, leave the rest to your imagination...

Mads Mikkelsen: the blockbuster villain with leading-man ambitions

Henry Barnes, The Guardian, Tue 5 Jun 2012 19.31 BST

From Bond villain to mythical monster bait, Mads Mikkelsen knows his place on the Hollywood roll call. But with his arthouse career booming, he's ready for the big time Mads Mikkelsen is battleworn.

He has just been chasing the moonlight across a Romanian set, filming the climactic gunfight of a new mob thriller, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. It's a US production starring Shia LaBeouf, so naturally the Danish actor plays the baddie.

This, broadly, is how it goes for Mikkelsen in Hollywood: he's one of a roll call of European actors (Vincent Cassel, Mathieu Almaric, Alexander Skarsgård) recruited to add spice to popcorn. For Mikkelsen, that means being ready to shoulder the status of morally ambiguous sex symbol, whether as Bond villain (Le Chiffre, Casino Royale's blood-weeping banker), enforcer (the baneful Rochefort of last year's The Three Musketeers), or mythical monster bait (Clash of the Titans' Draco).

"It's just another part of being an actor," he says, the lisp in his English rasping a little after the nightshoot. "It's not only doing arthouse films, but going in there and really, really believing there's a giant scorpion and you're going to kill it."

Yet behind the blockbusters, his arthouse career is booming. Last week, he won Cannes' best actor prize for his role in The Hunt, the new film from Festen director Thomas Vinterberg, in which a nursery school teacher is accused of paedophilia. Next week sees the release of A Royal Affair – a classy Danish drama based on the true story of the political maneuvering of Johann Friedrich Struensee, the German doctor who became personal physician to the mentally unstable King Christian VII.
Struensee used his influence over the regent to move from right-hand man to puppetmaster, making time to embark on an affair with the queen, father their illegitimate child and become the de facto ruler of Denmark for 10 months in 1771, before a conspiracy instigated by the king's mother led to his arrest and execution.

"Before we made films about gangsters, everything was about the royal families," says Mikkelsen. "They contain so much drama. This is really about the love affair between three people – Struensee, Christian and Queen Caroline. And how painful it is when Christian discovers the whole thing. He seems more jealous for Struensee than for his wife, because he really, really loves him."

The film may be a little stilted, but Mikkelsen's portrayal of Struensee is deft and nuanced. The doctor achieves the power to help society's weakest by exploiting a mentally weak king, and every twist of that compromise is played out in Mikkelsen's performance.

And if Struensee's skill was in seizing a moment, it's hard to resist casting Mikkelsen in a similar role. He's one of Danish cinema's talented opportunists, an actor who developed his style across genres as the country's film scene matured from the flash-bang adolescence of Dogme 95 into something more conservative and commercial.

"The big bang happened in the mid-90s," says Mikkelsen. "At that time – how can I compare it? – Danish cinema was like a country today that doesn't have the iPad. We were doing stuff that was really old school. And now I think we use that base to be brave enough to go out and make genre films."

Denmark's current genre king is Nicolas Winding Refn, who gave Mikkelsen his first film role as lovable drug dealer Tonny in the 1996 crime drama Pusher.

"He always had the touch of something stylised," says Mikkelsen of the Drive director, "even when he was making really hardcore, almost documentary-feel films in the beginning."

The pair, who last worked together on Viking action flick Valhalla Rising, are set to reunite with an as-yet-unnamed Hollywood heist movie that should bump Mikkelsen up to leading-man status. "If no one else will give him the lead in a Hollywood movie, I will," said Refn of the project in 2010.

Until then it's art and business as usual for Mikkelsen, with a starring role in Arnaud des Pallières's Michael Kohlhaas (a revenge story about a horse merchant-turned-vigilante, based on Heinrich von Kleist's novella) balanced out by his rumoured casting as the anvil to Chris Hemsworth's hammer in Thor 2. That's another Hollywood bad-guy role, but it will get his face on the billboard, some money in the bank, and – let's not forget – should be a lot of fun, too.

"If I was doing The Hunt constantly," Mikkelsen says, "I would get very old, very fast."

Finally someone mentioned 'Michael Kohlhaas', I was starting to think this project doesn't exist! Zero media coverage!

I have to admit I'm really starting to like Thomas Bo Larsen Razz SEOGHØR.DK is the same magazine that published last year's Cannes 'scandalous' video- actually it is still on their website!- and the same mag that published Mads' butt claiming he did a porn movie Neutral
I can't access the mag because it is blocked so I use an alternative proxy. When I saw the materials published I knew why it is blocked Laughing I guess he's not very fond of them, I didn't find interviews there but they have good photos of him.

I have two recordings of the birthday, one I published already and the other one, from the documentary which I didn't trim & upload because Mads only appear at the very first seconds. In neither of those videos we get to see this blowjob Rolling Eyes

But there's a certain bit I like: Vinterberg goes to Thomas' table and sort of punches him on the shoulder. I guess this is how guys say 'thank you for showing up to my birthday party' Laughing Though it is in Danish, I believe Vinterberg asked Thomas Bo about the song or something-he was with his lovely IPod- and the latter answered 'The boys are out of town', rabbit Seems to be his favorite song!

Mads, best actor and sex symbol of Cannes: "When I was a dancer '
It is from the Italian Vanity Fair. I couldn't copy the text at all, only the title. Hope you girls can do so. Because of the title, I'm not sure if it belongs here or the Cannes thread Question
There are more pictures but I liked these two:

Mads, miglior attore e sex symbol di Cannes: «Quando facevo il ballerino»

L'intervista esclusiva a Mikkelsen, protagonista di The Hunt di Thomas Vinterberg: «Alla recitazione sono arrivato tardi. E mi scambiano per Viggo Mortensen»

di Simona Siri · 28 maggio 2012


Mads, best actor and sex symbol of Cannes: "When I was a dancer '

The exclusive interview with Mikkelsen, star of The Hunt of Thomas Vinterberg's "The drama is too late. And they mistake me for Viggo Mortensen "

Chiamalo, se vuoi, effetto Fassbender. È quel fenomeno grazie al quale un attore non giovanissimo e con una solida carriera alle spalle arriva a un Festival, vince un premio e grazie a quello si trasforma in sex symbol mondiale, nella faccia nuova di Hollywood. È successo l’anno scorso a Michael Fassbender, appunto: la Coppa Volpi per la migliore interpretazione maschile in Shame ha finalmente fatto conoscere al grande pubblico un attore già abbondantemente apprezzato dai cinefili e, di fatto, ha cambiato il corso di una carriera che rischiava di rimanere un po’ sospesa. Probabile che la stessa identica cosa succeda a Mads Mikkelsen, attore danese vincitore domenica della Palma per la miglior interpretazione maschile per The Hunt del regista Thoma Vinterberger (quello di Festen). Esattamente come Fassbender, Mikkelsen non è l’ultimo arrivato: ha già recitato in almeno una quarantina di film, tra cui il super culto Valhalla Rising di Nicolas Winding Refn, Dopo il matrimonio (candidato dell’Oscar come miglior film straniero nel 2007), CasinoRoyale, dove prestava il volto al cattivo di turno, Le Chiffre.

Ecco, la faccia: squadrato come solo i nordici possono essere, Mikkelsen ha uno di quei volti che non si dimenticano facilmente e che, a dispetto della freddezza, sembra particolarmente a suo agio nelle parti drammatiche. In The hunt è Lucas, un maestro d’asilo ingiustamente accusato di aver molestato la figlia del suo migliore amico.


Call it, if you want, Fassbender effect. It is the phenomenon whereby a young actor with a solid career behind him comes to a festival, he won an award and thanks to the changes in global sex symbol, the new face of Hollywood. It happened last year in Michael Fassbender, in fact: the Coppa Volpi for Best Actor in Shame has finally made ​​known to the general public an actor already thoroughly appreciated by film buffs and, in fact, changed the course of a career that threatened to stay a while 'suspended. Likely that the same thing happen to Mads Mikkelsen, Danish actor winner of the Palme Sunday for Best Actor for The Hunt directed Vinterberger Thoma (that of Festen). Just like Fassbender, Mikkelsen is the newest member: has already starred in at least forty films, including the super cult Valhalla Rising by Nicolas Winding Refn, After the Wedding (nominated for an Oscar as best foreign film in 2007), CasinoRoyale, where he lent his face to the villain, Le Chiffre.

Here, the face: square as only Nordic can be, Mikkelsen has one of those faces that are not easily forgotten and that, in spite of the coldness, seems particularly at home in dramatic roles. In The hunt is Lucas, a kindergarten teacher falsely accused of molesting the daughter of his best friend.

Un'accusa totalmente infondata, che però non viene mai messa i dubbio dalla piccola comunità in cui Lucas vive e lavora e che, da quel momento, lo tratterà come un reietto, togliendogli non solo la possibilità di lavorare, ma anche di vivere, sottoposto a una violenza fisica e psicologica che lo porta all’isolamento e quasi alla pazzia. Incapace di difendersi, paralizzato dall’assurdità delle accuse e sconcertato dal comportamento di quelli che prima erano i suoi amici, quelli con cui andava a caccia e si ubriacava la sera, Lucas vive la sua tragedia più che con le azioni con le espressioni del volto, ormai deformato dal dolore.

Birra in mano («la prima della giornata, lo scriva») e giubbotto di pelle, il Mikkelsen che si presenta all’appuntamento per l’intervista è invece un uomo rilassato e dai modi molto terreni, dotato di buone maniere e di un senso dell’umorismo un po’ dark che lo rende sicuramente affascinante e che, dice, fa parte del dna danese.

Sono sincera: ad un certo punto del film ero quasi irritata dal comportamento di Lucas. Volevo che reagisse, che facesse qualcosa.

«Non è la prima a dirmelo. È un punto su cui io e il regista Thomas Vinterberger abbiamo discusso parecchio. Io stesso, leggendo il copione per la prima volta, mi sono sentito frustrato quanto lei. Ma vede, Lucas è un uomo buono, è una persona civile ed educata. A suo modo, è uno che lotta, sempre, dall’inizio. Cerca di ribellarsi come può alla situazione kafkiana in cui si trova».


An accusation totally unfounded, but never put the question by the small community where Lucas lives and works and, from that moment, treat it as an outcast, not only taking away the ability to work, but also to live, subjected a physical and psychological violence that leads to isolation and almost to madness. Unable to defend himself, paralyzed from the absurdity of the accusations and appalled by the behavior of those who were his first friends, those with whom he went hunting and got drunk in the evening, Lucas lives with his tragedy rather than the action with facial expressions, now distorted with pain.

Beer in hand ("the first of the day, write it") and a leather jacket, the Mikkelsen and he introduces himself to interview a man is very relaxed and the ways land, with good manners and a sense humor a bit 'dark which makes it fascinating and certainly, he says, is part of the Danish DNA.

They are sincere: at some point in the film I was almost irritated by the behavior of Lucas. I was reacting, it does something.

"It is the first to tell me. It is a point on which I and the director Thomas Vinterberger we discussed a lot. I myself, reading the script for the first time, I felt frustrated as he is. But you see, Lucas is a good man, is a civilized and polite. In its way, is a struggling, increasingly, from the beginning. Tries to rebel as a Kafkaesque situation in which the can is. "

Sarebbe potuto scappare, no?

«Ma se fosse scappato sa che cosa avrebbero pensato tutti? Che era colpevole, che qualcosa di brutto aveva comunque fatto. No, Lucas rimane perché quella è la sua chiesa, la sua scuola, il suo supermercato: dimostrare la sua innocenza, essere creduto dalla sua gente è per lui la cosa più importante. Sono cresciuto in un posto simile, capisco le dinamiche di una comunità ristretta come quella».

Le accuse di pedofilia – giuste o ingiuste - sono un tema purtroppo molto attuale. Lei che idea si è fatto in proposito?

«Penso che ci sia parecchia paranoia in giro. In Danimarca, ad esempio, ci sono regole assurde, come quella che vieta di fotografare i bambini nelle piscine. Detto questo, penso che per quanto eccessive certe leggi siano fatte per proteggere i bambini, e quindi alla fine va bene così. Purtroppo il mondo è pieno di gente malata e là fuori ci sono molti bambini che non mentono quando dicono di essere stati molestati».

Freddo, razionale, controllato: Lucas è il tipico uomo danese?

«Sì e no, nel senso che la storia potrebbe essere ambientata ovunque e certe reazioni sarebbero comuni. Però è vero che io ho almeno tre, quattro amici d’infanzia che sono esattamente così e che cercano di risolvere i problemi usando prima di tutto la razionalità».


Could escape, right?

"But if he knows what would have escaped all thought? That he was guilty, that something bad had nevertheless made. No, Lucas is because that is his church, his school, his supermarket to prove his innocence, be believed by his people is the most important thing for him. I grew up in a place like this, I understand the dynamics of a small community like that."

Allegations of pedophilia - right or wrong - are a very topical issue unfortunately. Idea that she has done about it?

"I think there's a lot of paranoia around. In Denmark, for example, there are rules absurd, like the one that prohibits photographing children in swimming pools. That said, I think as excessive certain laws are made ​​to protect children, and then the end is good. Unfortunately the world is full of sick people out there and there are many children who do not lie when they say they were molested. "

Cold, rational, controlled: Lucas is the typical man of Danish?

"Yes and no, in the sense that the story could be set anywhere and certain reactions are common. But it's true that I have at least three, four childhood friends who are exactly like that and trying to solve problems by first rationality."

Anche lei è cresciuto in quel tipo di ambiente tutto maschile tra bevute al pub e battute di caccia?

«No, la caccia non ha mai fatto parte della mia vita. Lo sport sì, soprattutto calcio e ginnastica. E poi danza».

Nel senso di danza classica?

«Anche. Sono stato un ballerino professionista fino ai 30 anni, quando ho iniziato a recitare. In quegli anni studiato di tutto, dal repertorio classico alla danza contemporanea. Nel balletto però non mi sono mai esibito».

E alla danza come ci era arrivato?

«Grazie al mio allenatore di ginnastica: notò che ero portato per le coreografie e mi chiese se volevo iniziare a studiare danza. Dissi di sì subito, anche perché la classe di danza era piena di ragazze e io ero l’unico maschio».

I ballerini sono abituati a una disciplina che spesso manca agli attori. Lei a riguardo come è messo?

«Guardi che anche gli attori sono persone molto dedicate al loro mestiere. Però ha ragione, c’è una cosa che mi porto dietro dalla danza e che spesso i miei colleghi attori non hanno: la puntualità. Io sono sempre perfettamente in orario e quando qualcuno arriva alle prove in ritardo mi innervosisco, lo ammetto».


You also grew up in that kind of all-male environment of the pub drinking and hunting?

"No, hunting has never been part of my life. Sport yes, especially football and gymnastics. And then dance. "

In the sense of classical dance?

"Even. I've been a professional dancer until age 30 when I started acting. In those years studied everything from classical to contemporary dance. In the ballet, but I've never performed. "

And as we had come to the dance?

"Thanks to my gymnastics coach: he noticed that I was brought to the choreography and asked me if I wanted to get up to dance. I said yes right away, because the class was full of dancing girls and I was the only boy."

The dancers are accustomed to a discipline that is often missing actors. Is it about how to put it?

"Look at that actors are people very dedicated to their craft. But he's right, there is one thing that I carry around from dancing and my fellow actors who often do not have: punctuality. I am always perfectly on time and when someone arrives late to the tests I get nervous, I admit."

Lei per molto tempo è stato l’attore preferito di un altro regista danese di culto, Nicolas Winding Refn. Non è geloso adesso che lui lavora solo con Ryan Gosling con cui ha girato Drive e sta girando Only God forgives?

«Dovrebbe chiedere a Nicolas se non è geloso che io lavoro con Thomas Vinterberger. A parte gli scherzi, è come far parte di club diversi ma contigui: cambiare, ogni tanto, fa bene. E in futuro chissà, vedremo».

Il suo prossimo film sa già quando e quale sarà?

«Inizio a girarlo domani a Bucarest. Nel cast ci sono Shia Labeouf e Evan Rachel Wood. Loro sono una coppia: diciamo che io gli rovino la festa».

Sa che in sala, durante a proiezione, ho sentito dire riferito a lei: “Uh come assomiglia a Viggo Mortensen”.

«Non ci credo, non me l’hanno mai detto».

Mi sta prendendo in giro?

«C’è cascata! Sì, scherzavo. Una vola a Toronto stavo rientrando in albergo e dei fotografi mi hanno scambiato per lui, solo che quando hanno iniziato a urlare “Viggo! Viggo!” era troppo tardi per spiegargli che ero io e così ho lasciato fare. Credo di aver firmato anche qualche autografo col suo nome. Vabbè, tanto Viggo mica se la prende. Anzi, lo saluto: ciao Viggo!».


You long have been the favorite actor of another Danish cult director, Nicolas Winding Refn. Are you not jealous now that he works only with Ryan Gosling, with whom he shot and Drive is running Only God forgives?

"You should ask if Nicolas is not jealous that I work with Thomas Vinterberger. Seriously, it's like to be part of different clubs, but contiguous to change every now and does it well. And who knows in the future, we will see."

When Is your next film shooting and what will be?

"I start to shoot it tomorrow in Bucharest. In the cast are Shia Labeouf and Evan Rachel Wood. They are a couple: let's say that I spoil the party."

You know that in the hall during a screening, I heard told her: "Uh looks like Viggo Mortensen."

"I can not believe I did not ever tell."

You're kidding?

"There's a waterfall! Yes, I was joking. One was in Toronto I was returning to the hotel and the photographers I have traded for him, just that when they started yelling "Viggo! Viggo!" It was too late to explain that I was and so I let him. I think I even signed some autographs with his name. Okay, so he gets Viggo mica. Indeed, the greeting: Hello Viggo."

The blond lady who was mistaken for being Mads' wife Rolling Eyes and looked so eager to hug after announcing his win Rolling Eyes and clung to him like she'll never let go Rolling Eyes and looked so drastically happy during his speech Rolling Eyes is 'Sisse Graum Jørgensen'. She's one of Danish film’s most productive producers ..more here
