The 62-year-old Florida Project star was in attendance to accept the Honorary Golden Bear Award for lifetime achievement at the Berlin Film Festival. During the press conference, Willem was asked if he would ever migrate to television. “I’m not attracted naturally to television. I really think there’s a difference between television and cinema,” Willem expressed (via Deadline). “Lately, a lot of energy and resources are going to television. It sits in the culture in a more popular way than film. But I still find many opportunities in film and I think film has a special power TV almost never has to create a mystery and poetry. I’m more narrative obsessed.”.....»»

Jason Momoa Responds to "Justice League" Critics: "I Loved It"

Jason Momoa isn’t letting critics of Justice League bother him! The 38-year-old actor, who plays Aquaman in the film, says he loves the film, despite what other people may think. “I try to stay the f**k away from what people say.

The 38-year-old actor, who plays Aquaman in the film, says he loves the film, despite what other people may think. “I try to stay the f**k away from what people say. Some of my friends said, ‘Justice League isn’t doing well’ and it kind of bummed me out. But I didn’t want to look it up. I don’t want to look up the bad and the negativity. I don’t think that’s useful; it doesn’t help,” Jason explained to EW. He added, “I’ve seen it twice. I loved it the second time even more. I’m actually going to watch it again with my kids and my godchild…So I’m excited. You can’t get into the whole ‘why this, why that.’ I went to [Wizard World Austin fan convention] this weekend and got great praise. Now obviously, that’s a positive place, and I’m not only interested in the positive. But if people love what we did with Aquaman, it’s all [director Zack Snyder] — it’s his brainchild. He came in with, ‘I’m going to make Aquaman a badass and I’m going to change stuff, and change the myths about this guy.’ And I busted my ass.” Click inside to see what Jason said about critics of his character… “The challenging part is [the Justice League story] is only about a weekend in Author Curry’s life. [Fans] might be like, ‘Why is he that grumpy? Why’s he hiding up there?’ We had it all planned out. A lot of things got cut. But it’s not my movie. It’s a huge movie introducing three new characters, and for myself and The Flash and Cyborg, there was a lot that was there we just couldn’t get in. It could have been two movies. We had some stuff with William Dafoe. The whole Atlantean part, about me being this reluctant king. There was no need for it because you’re going to see it in Aquaman. It’s not an Aquaman movie, it’s a Justice League movie.”.....»»
