61-year-old actor Bryan Cranston is featured on the November cover of Esquire US photographed by Marc Hom.
– How Cranston connects with his dark side: “In many ways, I think I have used my career as a therapy session in life. It has been, I think, tremendously beneficial for me to get into roles that are sometimes disturbing, and to be able to purge my darker side into the character and have a cathartic release.”
– On Trump: “There’s no moral foundation to the man.”
– On politics and his new movie Last Flag Flying out next month: “If I lose fans for my political stance, or because people don’t like the movie, so be it. I’d rather be someone who stands up for something.”
– What prevented him from falling prey to many temptations when he attained global fame with Breaking Bad: “I mean, I was fifty. So I was already formed. Like, the clay was dry.” (source)
