Taylor Kitsch in the July issue of Elle Magazine



On filming True Detective, which premieres Sunday, June 21st: “I didn’t know True was going to be near as emotional. This season – fuck. I could feel Paul seeping into me. I’d be doing something or acting a certain way and think, 'Oh, this isn’t me.'”

Nic Pizzolatto on casting Taylor Kitsch as motorcycle cop, Paul Woodrugh: "“Woodrugh is very internalized and required a performer capable of conveying difficult and contradictory emotions within an outwardly stoic façade. Kitsch is believably tough and resourceful and hard while remaining vulnerable, sensitive, and empathetic. It’s that mixture of hardness and softness and native authenticity that really captivated me.”

On shunning the Hollywood life and living in Austin, Texas and the lack of dirt about his personal life in the media: “It’s great, isn’t it?” Still, the job does a number on his personal life. Says Kitsch, who’s currently single, “You sacrifice so fuckin’ much [as an actor]. How do you build a relationship with a gal and then tell her, ‘Hey, I gotta do press all over the world. I expect you to have the same feelings you have now in eight weeks.’ And that’s not me playing the violin. It’s my choice. But it better be worth sacrificing for.”
