Max Irons was recently interviewed by Refinery 29 for his second I.N.C. campaign. In the interview, Irons opens up about Fifty Shades of Grey, the Host, and comparisons to Twilight.
When asked about the chances of the Host blowing up to a Twilight-sized phenomenon and comparisons to Robert Pattinson, Irons replies, “Look, its great for him and he’s doing great Kronenberg projects which come of the back of doing something like Twilight, but you also have to sacrifice a part of your life, and that I don’t particularly want to sacrifice."
He also talks about his upcoming role as King Edward IV, saying, “Yes, it’s going to be awesome. I play King Edward IV for six months, filming in Belgium. I’ve seen the film In Bruges so I think I have a very romanticised view on it. Hopefully I bump in to Clemence Posey… because that would be the best thing that could ever happen to me."
Finally, when the interviewer mentions that he is on their ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ wish list and asks whether he would consider the role of Christian Grey, Irons blushes and replies, "Whatever brings people out of their shells. Whatever makes people embrace the nasty shit that goes on in that book, I guess." He also mentions that he would choose Clemence Poesy for Ana, if given the opportunity.
