Logan Lerman is showing off his sexy side in his photoshoot for Interview Magazine.
In the spread, the Noah star shows off his shirtless body while posing with models in a hotel room. He’s definitely not the little boy from “Jack & Bobby” any more! In the issue, Logan chatted with fellow actor Michael Shannon about maturing with his roles, filming his first sex scenes and more.
On being more comfortable in front of movie cameras than still cameras: I’ve had photographers who tried to direct me like that and I just can’t do it. Still photos are so uncomfortable. There’s something about 24 frames per second that’s more freeing. I mean, when it’s just one frame at a time … not to mention they threw this beautiful, naked model in the middle of this shoot. You take an awkward guy and you make it more awkward.
On doing his first steamy love scene: I just did my first one. It really wasn’t that bad. I had built it up to be so much more than it was. I kept psyching myself out. But then, you stick to the script, and it’s a character, so it’s a lot easier.
On training for Fury: Well, some of the stuff I can’t talk about. But, some of the cool stuff was, like, meeting with World War II veterans and with guys who were about to be deployed. We met with a bunch of military advisors—just constantly talking to people and picking their brains on war and their experiences. I’ve never been through a prep experience like that. That was so intense and so long.
On Brad Pitt “bossing” him around: Oh, a ton. He tortured me. All the guys did. I play the new guy that gets his ass beat in every scene. And these guys tortured me every day on set.
On his viewpoint on acting now versus when he started as a child: No, I was kind of guided into acting by my mom, and as a kid, I did it for fun. It was just a way to get out of school. But then I grew this great passion for film and really appreciated the position that I was in, and I was like, “I’m going to start acting.” I started doing roles and working with people that I really respected and became passionate about the art form of acting. And I’m still trying to figure it out. Still learning, you know?
On the project where he had the realization that his connection to acting was going to another level: 3:10 to Yuma. It kind of opened my eyes to what it’s all about, what a character is, how to approach a character.
