What is your relationship with the fashion world?
I like fashion and I feel good about what I wear. Honestly not too serious about it, I am more than feel like I’m wearing a cool thing. That shirt (he points to the model is wearing), have been around for a long time. I’m not the kind of person who leafs magazines to see what people are using, but I have my favorites, parts where I feel comfortable. That’s as far as you go! I have a few designers that I love and consider cool, like Rogan, Rag & Bone, Matcheless (they’re amazing, is my newest favorite brand), Zadig & Voltaire and John Varvatos.
You usually get involved in the costume of your characters? Gives opinions?
Certainly. I talk a lot with the costume designers and the director. I think the clothes in a movie are a mixture of view of different professionals. There are long in which I got already getting almost 30 hours in the costume room – or because the film has many looks involved, or because the clothes are very specific. In Phantom of the Opera, for example, it took a lot to get the right shade at the right expression, the ideal material, the perfect outfit, the more makeup that matched the shade … Sometimes you feel that spends more time with the costume designers than own film set!
It usually takes something of costumes from the films to life?
They [the costume designers] know many interesting ways to dress a person, especially those that add personality to the characters. When you play, you’re always saying something through the clothes. Sometimes they can give you a play any, but add a scarf or make a tear here and there and suddenly it becomes more alive, more colorful and richer.
