“Westworld” star James Marsden covers the June 2018 issue of Men’s Health magazine photographed by Art Streiber.



On “Westworld”: “It makes us look at behavior, and we see some very dark behavior on this show. I have to wash it off afterward, and then physically I have to wash it off to get the blood out of my ears and body orifices. You just have to learn to roll with the craziness.”

On confidence and Kanye: “The people who are like, ‘Oh, that was great. I’m the best,’ are usually the ones who aren’t. Unless you’re Kanye West. I wish I could be that confident about myself. I wish I could think like him, telling myself I’m awesome all-day long. I wasn’t raised that way, or to speak that way. But it’s impressive.”

On white male privilege and his divorce: “Being a white male, you’re born with certain unearned privileges. My life hasn’t been filled with sorrow and deep struggle. When the divorce happened, it was the first time I felt I lost my equilibrium. It was scary and sad and made me pull everything into focus. I know regrets can be a catalyst for good things. Not to talk like a Hallmark card, but it’s true.”

On acting: “My happiness isn’t dependent upon being a success within Hollywood. There is so much more to life like giving love and being decent. I want to lead with my heart.”


The June issue of Men’s Health hits newsstands on May 22nd.
