Here’s some clips from the movie that have surfaced on various media outlets!
The Magic Mike protégé and Endless Love star (in theaters February 14) talks tattoos and why he doesn’t give a damn about his bad reputation.
Your Endless Love character is a good guy with a shady past. Any similarities?
We both love love. I love love. He works in a garage and I work in movies, so that’s a bit different. But I worked in a garage when I was 15. I also raced cars. Not professionally, but that’s what I always wanted to do. If I were in Formula 1, I’d quit acting…or make it my B job.
You’re pretty tatted up — any girlfriends’ names?
No! That’s relationship suicide. I would get my mom’s name though. My favorite one is “What goes around comes around” on my shoulder. I’m a big believer in karma, but 90 percent of people say, “Isn’t that a Justin Timberlake song?” I did a movie with Justin and told him, “You’re a fucking pain in my ass, mate!”
You’re known for being a bad boy — thoughts?
People will write what they want to write, and it’s a lot easier to flow the pen negatively than positively. But I’m a boring motherfucker. I don’t drink alcohol. I’ve never taken drugs — ever. So I don’t go out to nightclubs or anything. I go to Disneyland, or I’ll rent a go-kart track and go racing.
Diana Ross and Lionel Richie’s Endless Love is a karaoke classic. What’s your go-to jam?
Toto’s Africa or I’ll do the Spice Girls. “I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want.” Do you know they had a West End show? I saw it when I was back in England. That’s me — true bad boy and lover of the Spice Girls.
Do you believe in soul mates?
I do. Maybe not just one. But I believe that there are people out there who are made for you. It’s hard to come by nowadays, but when you do, it’s something special.
