ETHAN HAWKE Why The Actor Thinks Derek Jeter Knows What He’s Doing

Ethan Hawke Arriving On A Flight At LAX

Ethan Hawke has a new movie coming out called ‘The Getaway’ so he’s been doing a bit of press for it.  He sat down with Elle Magazine and the interview focused a lot on Ethan’s love life and whether he’s as romantic as the characters he’s played on the big screen.  It’s a really great interview and if you have a few minutes you should read the whole thing, but I loved the part where he was asked about his marriage to Uma Thurman and whether he was really ready to get married or not.  Ethan said;

EH: Success when you’re young is really overwhelming. The world felt out of control. And I wanted to stop it from spinning so fast. I thought marriage would decrease my variables or something. I was absolutely wrong. [Pause] There was this discovery that the male brain isn’t done until 28. I definitely think my frontal lobe was not finished. I had no business taking vows that would last more than two weeks. My personal opinion? The guy who’s got it right is Derek Jeter. He lives his life like, “Hey man, I play shortstop for the New York Yankees. And I’m not going to get married until I’m no longer a shortstop for the New York Yankees.” Which is incredibly smart.

Well, sounds like someone wishes they’d sowed their wild oats for a little bit longer! What do you think?
