The bottom line is this... Ethan Hawke was chosen, and would be nothing without a huge team of highly creative people behind him and he knows that about himself, so he's not really pretentious within the realm of his craft. Give him credit, he capitalized on the opportunity of his big break when it was presented to him. I knew so many exceptionally talented people in NYC who had so much to offer in the realm of film, theater, music etc... But for whatever reason they decided not to take their art forms to the next level of commercialized success. Many chose to remain true to themselves by staying somewhat anonymous. They were the ones who didn't sell their souls to the Devil so to speak. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of those artists who were intelligent enough to know the downfall of what it means to be controlled and famous while losing all sense of privacy and personal space.

Damn. I dont know much about Mr. Hawk, but i dont know if he speaks like an adoptee or a thespian. It's beautiful either way. Thank goodness for your words.

Imagine someone like Chris Pratt saying those things....Ethan Hawke sound very clear and knows what he’s talking about.

People rarely reflect on their lives in public, they don't talk about themselves the way that Ethan does here because the media obviously promotes celebrities for economic reasons; thus actors appear more ego centric because people watch these interviews of them talking about themselves which is so foreign. Celebrities are ego driven because they need to be and after awhile they start believing that they are important and people want to hear about them. If he stopped getting roles and doing interviews, his vanity would turn to despair.

Such a pretentious title, it actually doesn't have much to do with pretense at all.

Most of Hollywood is pretentious. Matter of fact it's what is built upon. Hollywood loves to create new young hot actors who take the entertainment world by storm. Then a number of them burn out. Ethan is so wise. He's learned a great deal from the aging process about himself. He's a wealth of knowledge about living a meaningful life.

One of the most underrated actor and screenplay writer .. he should've won an Oscar for the "Before series" and Boyhood.

Sometimes, when I'm alone, I like to cover my chest in baked beans, pretend that my wife has taken the kids and left me, and scream at myself in a Liverpudlian accent.

I used to read long books that I didn't really enjoy, and I hated myself for being pretentious, but lately, I've realized that I was trying to get a better grasp on the English language. Linguistics is the only thing I ever had any talent for, so of course I wanted to enhance it as much as possible.

hes not pretentious, hes a philosopher. its rare to see a handsome good actor like Ethan who is also smart, articulate, passionate, philosophical about things. people seem don't like that. they cant accept how he is and so they just say hes pretentious. Ethan speaks honestly, deeply and genuinely everytime he talks. always right from his core. i love him a lot hes soo underrated

Yes, he's pretentious, but in today's dumbed-down society, his snobbery is refreshing.

In short- "you have to hopefully create a little bit of balance of maintaining that "youthful hubris" or else you won't get anything done." Pretentiousness, if you are open to laughing at yourself, is a necessary ingredient to creating and achieving any kind of personal aspiration.

D. Crp how Oh how very pretentious of you.

People tend to make some activities more important or special than it actually is and can also think themselves unimportant or less valid than they actually are.
thelonious monk (2 года назад)
theres so much to get from this and from most people speaking openly out of something other than their bum. mostly though is how valuable being honest is, how generous it can be. Whether its to strangers on youtube who listen because your an artist or your famous or whether its to people you know or people you want to know or even people you just met. Maybe its all he knows havin been open with his emotions to be good at what he does, being comfortable with yourself while people are watching knowing enough of yourself to do so. im grateful though for that thing that actors have whether it was once bravery or whether its just their nature its really liberating to learn from someone whose got nothing to sell you and nothing to gain except whatever you get from introspection and sharing that lil part of yourself in that moment.

Soooo what qualifies someone as pretentious??
Khuel the Succubus Kisser (1 месяц назад)
Speaking without knowing what the hell you are talking about. Speaking in a unpleasant, narcissistic way. And just being an all round piece of shit

When you're not true to yourself. Joaquin Phoenix rapping = pretentious. But maybe if he practiced and became great = not pretentious?

He's talking Cassius Clay pretentious. From an essay by Ali in '09- "In high school, I boasted weekly — if not daily — that one day I was going to be the heavyweight champion of the world. As part of my boxing training, I would run down Fourth Street in downtown Louisville, darting in and out of local shops, taking just enough time to tell them I was training for the Olympics and I was going to win a gold medal. And when I came back home, I was going to turn pro and become the world heavyweight champion in boxing. I never thought of the possibility of failing — only of the fame and glory I was going to get when I won. I could see it. I could almost feel it. When I proclaimed that I was the "Greatest of All Time," I believed in myself. And I still do." I would bet that most people laughed at him and that he laughed too, but he knew something.

Andreas M (3 года назад)
his concept of pretentiousness and how it pertained to the acting thing, i feel so related to knowledge in the same scenario..... people 100% treating an educated knowledgable person who actually enjoys learning about a certain few large fields and as a result has a significant accurate knowledge pool, people dont like to hear true facts about things that are bizarre and unexpected as much as me i guess, forever will be Kurt, that guy whos sort've pretentious
thelonious monk (2 года назад)
yeh and not to make assumptions because people are either incredibly transparent or absolutely unperceivable.
Danielle Fish (3 года назад)
+Kurt M People are different. The thing is to treat everyone with respect and eventually you'll find someone else who sees things the way you do.
Caitlin Rix (3 года назад)
Mmmmmmmmh... no. It's not. I've always associated pretention with a lack of humour, so if you're pretentious with a sense of humour, then you're not really being pretentious IMO.
