Ben Schnetzer Talks 'The Book Thief' in Bello Mag

Ben Schnetzer gets thoughtful in this new shot from the November issue of Bello mag.

The 23-year-old actor opened up about his role as Max in The Book Thief. Check it:

On taking on the role of Max: “I tried to use the book’s legacy as motivation to tell the story as honestly as I could. There’s a sense of responsibility that comes with taking on a role, especially one that is adapted from another medium, so I tried to do my best to carry that responsibility with the integrity I think it deserves.”

On filming in the German winter: “It was piercing! It’s a different kind of cold in Germany. One night, we had to get one shot of a scene when I first show up at the Hubermanns’, and it was like one in the morning, and I figured, Right, I’m supposed to be freezing in the scene; let’s do it. So I didn’t put on any thermals under my wardrobe. In my naïveté, I also thought, surely one shot will only take a few minutes! Cut to an hour later…it was the coldest I’ve ever been in my life! I almost passed out when we wrapped that night; our on-set medic was pouring supplements for me to take.”

The Book Thief is out NOW.??

WHY they are trying to make him looks like something typical and standart image?? Like C. Farrell or B. Pitt. He has his own face and style. I am worried about him, because of this..
