Bryan Cranston: Being a Celeb Is Like Being Pregnant
Being famous is much like expecting a little bundle of joy, or that’s at least how Bryan Cranston sees it!
“To be famous is almost like being pregnant. Everyone thinks they can just put their hands on your belly and tell you, ‘Oh you’re going to have a boy!’ It is like having a stranger groping you,” the Breaking Bad star told Hollywood Reporter.
Cranston also added “They have this sensibility where they feel comfortable coming up to you and saying, ‘You know that thing you did? I really didn’t like that movie.’”
However, he understands that this is something that comes with the territory and he is just trying to enjoy his hour of fame. According to the 59-year old actor, the most important part of his job is to spark an emotion in the audience, be it negative or positive:
“I’m open to everything. The only failure in art is when you move someone to no emotion whatsoever. I’d rather have people fiercely angry with me as long as they are moved to some extent. Even if the emotion was completely off target – like if I was trying to move the audience one place and they go another. You missed it, but at least they felt something.”
The Malcolm In The Middle star is going to portray Lyndon Johnson in HBO’s movie adaptation of Robert Schenkkan’s play – All the Way. This time Cranston is going to star in a completely different role than in his previous endeavors, but he is ready to tackle the part and be brilliant as always. This is what he had to say about it:
“Oh my God, such a bigger than life character. Tremendous ambition, frailty, a giant of a man and huge stakes – and then he declined with the failures of Vietnam. I think All the Way introduces another generation and reminds the generations that were alive then just how deep his accomplishments were.”
All the Way still doesn’t have an official release date, but we can’t wait to see Cranston in the role of the 36th President of the U.S.A.
