Man Crush Monday: Theo James

"We’re in a world where masculinity, especially with these big spectacle movies,
is often pushed by rippling six packs and forcing an image down someone’s throat
trying to prove masculinity. Whereas I think true masculinity comes from having
a strong sense of self."

"In Britain, you do your job. When you do an American TV show, there is a sense
of being one with the crew, and there is a leadership element, which was a learning
curve for me because it is very different culturally. In Britain, you just do it, leave
and say, 'Thanks."

"Today there are great shows like Looking, poignant pieces of work that revolve
around a central cast of characters that happen to be gay. But I remember when
Queer as Folk came out and thinking, Things are changing. Maybe there will be
more [shows like this].
And then suddenly there was a drought.
Hopefully the day [we have a gay action hero] isn’t far away."
