Divergent’ Star Theo James Hates Reading About Himself Online; Calls It ‘Fucking Mind Fuck’ Perception

Theo James made his television debut with “A Passionate Woman,” starring Billie Piper but his most promising role has been in “Divergent” film series where he played the role of Tobias ‘Four’ Eaton. In a recent interview, Theo James talked about his personal life apart from acting.

In an interview with Flaunt Magazine, James was asked what he does when he reads about himself online? The philosophical graduate promptly said that when he started his career, his colleagues, friends told him that if one actor is looking at internet to read about himself then he or she is doing a cardinal sin, but even Theo accepts the fact that one accidentally do it on internet or in any newsstand.

“You end up forming a perception of yourself based on other people’s opinions; a perception outside your own self, which is a fucking mind fuck because you start perceiving yourself as something that you aren’t.”

The 30-years-old James also accepted that it is not being easy an actor. In an interview with Flickering Myth, James said that the tricking part is how one actor is connected to a global audience. There’s always a blurring line between an actor as your job and a celebrity.

Most of the time it happens that one forget the line and then it creates a lot of problem. “You never want to perceive yourself through anyone else’s eyes and whether that’s the media of a social thing, or someone coming up to you in a bar. You want to maintain the fact that it’s a job, that’s what it is.”
