In The Mix interviewed Garrett for the upcoming Australia release on 16th December, Tron Legacy.

I don’t know if you’ve seen it yet, but your face is on a lot of posters and stuff. That must be crazy?

“[Laughs] Yeah, it is. But I don’t know, I think if it was somebody else’s film that I would see on billboards when I was just walking around then I’d be really excited for them and think ‘wow, this must be a really cool position to be in, man” but being here and seeing this stuff…I just don’t know how to react to it…so I don’t. I’m not the kind of person who’s like ‘hey, check this out! It’s a poster of me! Right? Eat it!’…for me, it’s cool, but I just try to think about the whole film.”

I guess there would be a lot of that here in L.A., that kind of ‘look at me’ attitude.

“Yeah, there are a lot of people in it for different reasons. I’ve always been very effected by film…I never got to watch much television growing up, we had three channels on the farm so I think all I got to watch was a lot of Roseanne, but film really started to effect me and take me out of my world and put me into another. It was like I got to go on vacation and I would completely dive into it. If it moved me emotionally or cheered me up out of a bad mood it made me realise that it was something I wanted to do for other people. I love sadness; I love sad songs and I love sad films and if there is a film that can effect me that way then, man, I am so satisfied, y’know? I bought a ticket to the right film. I always like playing different characters ‘cause I get bored of myself real quick.”

It must be a real honour to work with someone like Jeff Bridges then, who says he doesn’t even need to make movies anymore.

“Yeah, absolutely.”

When you look at his career, he’s been working consistently for a few decades now. Do you look at him and aspire to have that same longevity?

“That’s exactly what it is, to have that endurance. But it’s also to have the passion and the drive and the inspiration towards doing this the whole way through like he does. With Jeff, even at this point where he’s done so many films, I can see that he works harder than he has before when he does a movie. That’s something I take away from working with him, never ceasing to work harder on what I’m doing than on the project before…always pushing the torch a little bit further. Jeff is so genuine and so full of life and he’s inspired at so many other things whether it’s music or art or spirituality or just good old fashioned jokes. He’s just a great person to be around. It was such an honour.”
