Asa Butterfield Jokes That He Wants To Change His Name

Asa Butterfield definitely pulled everyone’s legs in a recent interview while promoting his latest flick, The Space Between Us.

“People don’t believe me when I say my name is Asa Bopp,” he shared, which is also his Instagram handle name. “It sounds like beatboxing.”

Asa added, “There was a comet in the sky when I was born (Hale–Bopp) and my mom thought it would be nice to give me that as my middle name. It’s strange.”

If you look around the internet, you’ll find out that he was born with the middle names of “Maxwell Thornton”, however, he uses “Bopp” on all his documents.

“I wish I could change my name, but it’s not my choice,” he joked later.

Asa is also pictured below at Showcase Cinema de Lux launch event in Southampton, England earlier this week.

VIDEO: Watch Asa Butterfield Totally Freak Britt Robertson Out in New 'Space Between Us' Clip (Exclusive)

Asa Butterfield is blurting out all his feelings for Britt Robertson all at once in this exclusive clip from The Space Between Us.

While on their road trip to find his father, Gardner (Asa) just can’t stop telling Tulsa (Britt) that she’s beautiful. We don’t get why she’d want that to stop at all, but you know, to each their own.

The flick centers on Gardner, the first child to be born on Mars and who is eager to travel to Earth, after beginning an online friendship with a street smart girl in Colorado.

When he finally gets to the blue planet, scientists discover that Gardner’s organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere.

The Space Between Us will now hit theaters on February 3rd.

Asa Butterfield Learned To Walk Like A Martian With Ankle Weights for 'Space Between Us'

Asa Butterfield Learned To Walk Like A Martian With Ankle Weights for 'Space Between Us'

Asa Butterfield did something we probably never would’ve thought off for his new movie, The Space Between Us.

In the flick, also starring Britt Robertson, Asa stars as Gardner Elliott, a human born on Mars who’s never set foot on Earth. So, because he’s going to Earth for the first time, he had to at least walk like a Martian — and he used ankle weights to help him do it.

Asa actually wore ankle weights for 20 minutes a day while rehearsing and then watched the footage to determine what it looks like to carry around that much weight.

“We wanted it to be noticeable but not over-the-top,” he shared. “So it was a key balance.”

Asa, who’s pictured with co-star Carla Gugino and Spencer List at the New York City premiere last night below, loved the draw of the movie as a whole.

“I think it’s a very human story even though [my character is] a Martian,” he shared. “It really highlights how lucky we are to be on such an incredible planet, how we can’t carry on taking it for granted.”

Britt Robertson twirls around in her glittery gold dress at the premiere of The Space Between Us in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (January 17).

The former Life, Unexpected actress met up with Asa Butterfield on the black carpet to premiere their new flick, which hits theaters on February 3rd.

“[Tulsa] humanizes him,” Asa told reporters on the set while filming the movie. “Through her, he learns to understand what it means to be human. There are emotions that he figures out that he’s never experienced before.”

Britt adds about their characters’ relationship: “They meet for the first time — he’s bizarre, and he’s weird, and he’s everything she’s looking for in a way, because it’s not everything she knows.”

FYI: Britt is wearing a Miu Miu dress with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Asa Butterfield Compares His British Accent to His American Accent

Asa Butterfield Compares His British Accent to His American Accent

Asa Butterfield gets his close up on the latest cover Da Man magazine’s brand new issue!

The 19-year-old The Space Between Us star chatted about having to do an American accent for films, and the possibility of doing a TV show. Here’s what he shared…

On if he would sign on for a TV show: “Yeah, I think I would do some more TV. Merlin and Ashes to Ashes are the only things I’ve done so far, and I think there are some incredible TV shows on at the moment. If something great came on, I would love to get back into it.

On his biggest challenge working in America (he’s an English actor): “The biggest challenge is the accent. As an English actor here, to be successful means you really have to be able to do an American accent, and thankfully, I can, and a lot of English actors can as well. I tend to think that English actors are better at American than American actors are at English. Don’t know why. Maybe our accents are a bit harder. No, I think that’s right actually. The American accent is really kind of relaxed and easy. Once I started doing an American accent in a movie, I actually prefer to talk like that because it takes much less effort and it takes me a while to get back into my normal voice.”

Asa Butterfield Relates A Lot To His 'Miss Peregrine' Character Jacob

Asa Butterfield Relates A Lot To His 'Miss Peregrine' Character Jacob

Asa Butterfield turns into a real live bat in this inside shot from the new issue of Schon magazine.

The 19-year-old actor, who stars in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, opens up about the film, connecting with characters and more. Check it:

On making connections with his movie characters: “I find the characters which are the most interesting, or most relatable are the ones that have their own kind of issue or problem that they are dealing with. Whether they are the same ones that you are dealing with or not, it allows you to kind of empathise with the character.”

On relating to Jacob in Miss Peregrine: “[He's] taken out of his comfort zone. He’s kicked out of his home and is taken to a children’s home. He’s totally out of place; in the deep end. Me, growing up in this industry, thrown into this world which, when I started, I knew very little about… I’m still trying to grasp it all. I think actors are some of the most empathetic people because they have to put themselves in positions where they feel uncomfortable or they’ve got to deal with something terrible. That really allows you to feel for people in the real world who are going through struggles and are having a tough time.”

On working with Tim Burton: “There were a lot of moments where we would do a take, get the scene right, and then he would come up to me and say, ‘Now just do whatever you want; forget everything I’ve said and do your own thing.’ Firstly, that makes you, as an actor, feel like he trusts your take on it which, when you’re working with a director like Tim, means a lot. It also kind of gets rid of the pressure and gives the ability to take a deep breath, to start again, and to do something different.”

Asa is also pictured below during his appearance at the Build Series in New York City on Thursday (September 29).

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is out NOW in theaters. 20+ pics inside…
