Mads Mikkelsen says acting method is ‘Bulls**t’ and ‘pretentious’

All serious comedians close their ears because the Danish actor fools Mikkelsen slammed the method acting like ‘bull s**t’.

In an interview with QGthe Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets the star called out other actors who go to great lengths for their roles; even calling it “pretentious”.

“I would have the time of my life, just constantly breaking down the character,” he said.

“I smoke a cigarette. It’s 2020, it’s not 1870 – can you live with that? It’s just pretentious. Daniel Day-Lewis is a great actor. But that has nothing to do with that. »

The Danish star, who replaced Johnny Depp as the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the future Harry Potter spin off flick, also talked about the dangers of the acting method and the “madness” of immersing yourself in characters offscreen.

“Preparation, you can take the madness,” he said.

“What if it was a movie like a**t — what do you think you’ve accomplished?” Am I impressed that you didn’t drop the character? You should have dropped it from the start! How do you prepare for a serial killer? You gonna spend two years checking it out? »

Let’s just hope that Daniel Day-Lewis never have to play Jeffrey Dahmer.

the Casino royal star also condemned the media for praising the method acting and creating ‘Othe scars are buzzing’ for those who display such a commitment to their character.

“The media says, ‘Oh my god, he took it so seriously, so he must be fantastic; let’s give it a price,'” he said.

“So it’s the talk, and everyone knows it, and it becomes a thing. »

Mikkelsen’s comments come after Jared Leto made headlines earlier this month for the method acting so hard in his film Morbius that this caused production delays.

Morbius‘ director, Daniel Espinosasaid the actor was very keen on accurately portraying the physical limitations of his character, Dr. Michael Morbius.

According to Uproxxhe confirmed Leto even used crutches when the cameras weren’t rolling, pushing back the production schedule as it would take him 45 minutes to go to the bathroom.

Eventually, the crew decided to transport the 50-years via a wheelchair to help secure bathroom breaks to avoid filming delays.

While his approach to the role caused production hiatuses, Espinosa said he fully “supported” Letothe choice.

“Even if he is alive and strong, it must make a difference. Hey, man, it’s people’s processes,” he said.

“All actors believe in processes. And you, as a director, support whatever makes it as good as possible. »
