Anna Karenina: Aaron Taylor Johnson Talks Tolstoy & Kick-Ass 2

by at . Comments

British actor Aaron Taylor Johnson has shown his range in the last half-year between his roles as a peacenik medical marijuana dealer in Savages to his madly in love with Keira Knightley Russian aristocrat in Anna Karenina.

Movie Fanatic met Johnson for an exclusive video interview to explore how a character goes from a womanizing man of power to a hopeless romantic when he meets the muse that is Knightley as Anna Karenina. The Joe Wright-directed film pushes the boundaries of filmmaking and meets its literary iconography (don't miss our review going live November 16).

Plus, Johnson also shares his excitement, echoed in our exclusive Christopher Mintz-Plasse interview, for the upcoming Kick-Ass 2! “I can’t believe we’re doing it,” Johnson said. “I think Matthew (Vaughn, director) is adamant that he can try to top the first one. It’s quite overwhelming.”
