Amy Wallace, in the March '06 Esquire Mag article trying shift the conversation to Viggo's love life.

The closest I can get to the subject is this:

Me: We have to talk about women, because you are the sexiest man alive.

Him: So there are a lot of dead men who are sexier?

Me: Yes, you are surpassed many times over by dead men.

forgive me if I've used this but... well... you understand...

He has that incurable, unbearable, enigmatic eroticism of a three in the morning dream you've just awakened from.

Unfortunately most of the really funny jokes were associated with gruesome bloodletting of some kind or another. There was a lot of funny shit that was going on."

Many accomplished artists tell their students to always follow their dreams

Well how can I tell someone to follow their dreams when I can’t even come up with a good one for you. [both laugh]

In Portrait, while John Malkovich and other characters joust with words and shatter each other with glances, Mortensen gets to wield the ultimate weapon : the raw, raging physicality of a simple kiss. Does he like kissing ?

"I guess the simple answer is yes...kissing and the lack of kissing are crucial in illustrating the theme of the movie."

Why ? He smiles like the devil he once was. His reply is cryptic.

"Sometimes it's just nice to wait."

I have a picture I wanted to post with this, but can't put my finger on it at the moment... Viggo with crutches and Exene? It's hiding in Photobucket somewhere!

"We're not married now," Cervenka says, " but we are part of the same family," Adds Mortensen, "We do a lot of things together, the three of us: go to movies, travel...And it's not that we're thinking, well, we should do this for Henry. That's certainly a good enough reason, but we do it because we want to."

I didn't envy [Mortensen] when he arrived. Viggo walked into a very tense situation, threw himself into his role amazingly and quickly won the respect of everyone on the crew.

Recalling Viggo's first day on set: The filming was going on at the far end of the [Prancing Pony] set when I noticed this figure in a dark hood, smoking a pipe, sitting in another corner of the set altogether. Then I realized: it was Viggo. He wasn't required in the scene, he was just sitting there, observing the vibe, he was actually being Strider, being the outsider, the lonely man in the corner that no one spoke to.
