‘Happy Sad Confused,’ With Young Romantic Aaron Taylor-Johnson

The ‘Nocturnal Animals’ star talks marrying young in Hollywood

A lot of assumptions have been made about Aaron Taylor-Johnson. He became tabloid fodder at the age of 19 simply because of his engagement to noted filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood. This wasn’t in the career playbook for an actor on the rise thanks to diverse works like Nowhere Boy and Kick-Ass.

During his podcast debut on “Happy Sad Confused,” Taylor-Johnson opens up about what it’s been like to be scrutinized and judged simply for falling in love and wanting to be a young father.

Currently starring in the critically hailed Tom Ford thriller Nocturnal Animals, the 26-year-old reveals that he never harbored a wish to play a superhero — despite playing two already. Plus, he pulls the curtain back on what it’s like to be “media-trained,” and why his big moment with Bruce Springsteen was ruined.
