One day, when we’re older, we’re probably going to refer to Max Irons as an actor’s actor. The 26-year-old Brit (who just happens to be the son of Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons) told us this week that he has so much fun in front of the camera that he doesn’t he barely considers it work. Still, that won’t stop him from taking the odd modeling job, and his campaign with Macy’s INC men’s will go public Monday.
Irons has modeled before, of course — you may remember him from his campaigns with Mango and Burberry, where he stood and smoldered alongside Kate Moss, whom he says is lovely to work with. And as talented a model he is (you’ll see him doing is best Blue Steel in the slideshow below), he says acting is where his heart is.
“It’s an experience,” he said of his modeling work. “I enjoy being an actor. From what I understand being a model is a hard business, whereas acting is so much fun for me. It’s creative, you’re working with people who have a similar mindset.”
Irons will work with people who share his mindset, director Andrew Niccol and actors William Hurt and Saoirse Ronan among them, while he films Stephanie Meyer‘s The Host. It won’t be in theaters until next year, but until then you can get an eyeful of him at your local Macy’s. Or below.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
