My Obsession at home
UK premiere of Godzilla in London last night. My Obsession. My Obsession is …getting hotter and hotter and hotter, right?
Both of them.
She’s amazing in leather McQueen. He, at 23 now, almost 24 (in June), is just coming into his Man. Christ, it hurts me. In the place between my legs, that’s where it’s hurting me how f-cking CRAZY sexy he is.
Anyway, My Obsession went home, only that’s not home anymore. Los Angeles is home. And he addressed their move in his new interview with the London Evening Standard.
“I love Britain for being so grounded. But it’s too miserable. There’s that British mentality to attack LA: ‘Oh, those f-ckers just moved to Hollywood. F*cking pricks.’ I know that because I used to be one of those people. I used to come to LA and think, ‘I’m never f*cking living here.’ I couldn’t stand the place. But that’s because I was young, I only had myself to look after. Now I have a family, I see the outdoorsy lifestyle that this city can offer my kids. So if we do two years in London, or a year here... The way I see it is that as long as we are all together, wherever we are, that’s home.”
Because he was young…when he was young…
It’s an interesting word where he’s concerned. Because to many, he is STILL young. You know what I’m getting at. But he talks about his teen years like it’s a lifetime already lived.
“Yeah. I had a self-destructive moment. Luckily, it all went under the radar. I started drinking really early. I grew up in a remote little village, what else are you going to do? By the time I was 15, I was going to clubs in London. Then I just went a bit f*cking mad. I blew a sh-tload of money, and had two years that I cannot even remember... I was f*cking up all my work and my life. It was a sh-tty, dark moment. I was having a bit of trouble, transitioning, understanding why I was so... the one that was so... successful maybe. It was just before Nowhere Boy. I mean, you have to get everything off your chest before you can move on, right? Because if I didn’t do that then, I’d be breaking down now. I wouldn’t be able to raise a family, or be in control, or feel responsible enough to do what I do.”
Which is to be a father of 4 before the age of 24 and married to “the best woman I know”:
“I was raised by women. Now I’m raising women. I was always better around girls. I live in an all-female household. I even have two female dogs... It’s funny how that turned out. My girls have the best woman to look up to. She’s the strongest woman I know. As role models go, she’s the best. She’s so inspiring and smart. My girls are all going to be strong women, too.”
And so he took her name:
“I’m not the kind of male who has to put my imprint on everything. That dickhead kind of thing...It didn’t feel right to me that the woman has to take the man’s name. We wanted to give our family unity. I wanted to embrace her name. I’d rather wear her name on everything than mine.”
Oh my God, it just sounds so good. It just sounds so… reassuring, convincing. It sounds so much like I should shut the f-ck up and stop asking about what 30 will look like. And 35. That the 3 years between 15 and 18 (when he met her) were enough for him to figure it all out, to have grown as much as he would need to grow. Is it? Could it possibly be?
