We loved Edward Norton in ‘The Incredible Hulk,’ ‘The Bourne Legacy,’ and ‘The Illusionist.’ His outstanding acting skills have always won him awards and our hearts. During an interview with The Talks, Norton goes in depth about his acting career and how much he enjoys it. He stated that ever since he was a young boy, he knew right off the bat that acting gave him enough exhilaration and spontaneity for him to pursue. He goes through hardships, like any other normal person does. He can feel as if he’s faking and he gets lost, at times. It’s impossible to believe, but he does. Despite his struggles, he still enjoys acting. He believes there should be a balance between the cerebral part of the brain and the impulsive creativity that can come from chaos. Matching acting with perfectionism is exhausting, but the spontaneity is what keeps him going. Before filming, though, the actor prepares by looking at many things from clothes to music to voice. The voice is most important, so once he tried to replicate a prison inmate’s voice that sounded like sandpaper and glass. It helped him inhabit a character. Even with his hard work, he doesn’t feel disappointed if his films don’t become popular. He’s had enough experiences to know that every film doesn’t make it. However, he has more faith in a film’s longevity. It might not make it right away, but it can build their own relationship with people over time. Fortunately, with Edward Norton, it’s impossible not to admire him from the start. He can definitely rely on that.
