Max Irons is currently busy promoting his upcoming film 'The Host', and he has a new interview with the Daily Mail discussing his role in the film, getting famous, and whether he'll ever get as big as Robert Pattinson.
Max has always come off extremely grounded, despite growing up with two massively famous parents, so it's not a shock to see him say that he refuses to move to LA or indulge in the typical LA actor behavior. He explains that you can never consider yourself as a celebrity, saying, "I’ve learnt that from my parents. It’s the reason I won’t move to LA, and why I stay away from the party scene. The actors I respect are the ones who see it as a career and manage to live reasonably normal lives, like Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman."
Does that mean that the Twilight comparisons bother him? Well, Twilight's success has offered its actors financial stability and creative freedom, something Irons probably won't say no to. However, he admits that he can't see himself as famous as the Twilight crew, saying, "The Host is very much in the same vein as Twilight, and there’s clearly a huge fan base out there. But I can’t imagine myself being as huge as Robert Pattinson. I’m not sure I could handle that level of fame."
The Host comes out on March 29th, and stars Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, William Hurt, and Diane Kruger. Max is also currently filming 'The White Queen', a period television show that will be airing on BBC.
