Ethan Hawke ‘loves’ when his wife gets jeal­ous

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The ‘Mag­nif­i­cent Seven’ star tied the knot with his spouse Ryan in 2008 and likes it when she gets jeal­ous of other women. He said: “Yeah, that’s true. I love it when my wife gets jeal­ous. I have this weird re­ac­tion: ‘She thinks I can! She thinks I’m a hot man!” How­ever, on the most part, Ethan doesn’t think there are any pos­i­tives to jeal­ousy. He added: “But jeal­ousy? I think jeal­ousy’s one of the few emo­tions that ac­tu­ally has no pos­i­tive.” And the 46-year-old ac­tor has con­fessed he used to “envy” other ac­tors who he thought were bet­ter than him. He ex­plained to The Times mag­a­zine: “I used to envy peo­ple who were bet­ter than me. But then I re­al­ized I was mis­taken if I thought they were tak­ing any­thing away from me. They were in­spir­ing. That’s why I miss Phil [Sey­mour Hoff­man] so much. “Phil was one of a few peo­ple that gen­uinely made me ner­vous. I mean, for ex­am­ple, when I did a play, and I felt tired, and it’s a Wed­nes­day matinee, I’d play a game with my­self. ‘Oh s**t,’ I would say, ‘I think Phil’s com­ing to­day! Is he com­ing to­day?’” Mean­while, Ethan pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted he found it “im­pos­si­ble” to cope with his mar­riage to Uma Thur­man. He said: “[The prob­lem with] Uma was a math­e­mat­i­cal one. I was look­ing for a home, a sense of se­cu­rity, a foun­da­tion and a fam­ily in the con­cept of mar­riage. I was look­ing for the op­po­site of what I had in my life, al­ways ex­posed to the flashes - but I fell in love with some­one that just added more flashes to my pri­vate life. “Our mar­riage be­came the an­tithe­sis of what I wanted and we found it very dif­fi­cult to feel grounded. I know there are peo­ple who can han­dle it, I have friends who do. For me it was im­pos­si­ble. As I say, it was a mat­ter of math­e­mat­ics.” — Bang Show­biz
