  • Mark Ruffalo spent his twenties drifting through what he estimates as 600 failed auditions, and later quit Hollywood twice – but these days, he seems to have it all figured out. Especially since he was belted by gamma rays. “As an actor, you can do everything,” says Ruffalo, 48, who’s following Avengers: Age of Ultron with a role as a bipolar dad in the indie drama Infinitely Polar Bear,opening in theaters today. “I grew up in the theater, and you could do a musical, a comedy, a tragedy. Those kind of boundaries don’t really exist – and so I put on the Hulk mask for a little while, or I put on the Begin Again mask for a little while.”

    Hanging out in a West Village coffee house and in Central Park in his interview for our Hulk cover story, Ruffalo had plenty to say: Here’s more from the conversation.

    Playing the Hulk changed everything
    “I’m like a Depression-era person, as far as acting goes,” he says. “It’s sort of like, grab it while you can and make the most of what’s in front of you. The first Avengers opened up a host of things that I’ve been struggling to get made for a long period of time. It created this whole, sort of, avalanche of work. And then I was kinda like, “You know what, you’re 45, this is the pocket, now. So I was also like, I want to really get a nice body of work out there to really open up the margins of how I’m perceived, you know?” [more at source]

  • Mark was once again on Reddit earlier today to discuss water usage and we had a great time reading his advocacy on the correct use of this resource – I am from Brazil and we’re experiencing a hard time on potable water. So a lot of his experience during all the time working on it worth reading.

    But, of course, he was asked about the backlash against the film’s director, Joss Whedon – which deleted his twitter account this week after a huge backlash about the creative decisions he made regarding Black Widow.

    I think it’s sad. Because I know how Joss feels about women, and I know that he’s made it a point to create strong female characters. I think part of the problem is that people are frustrated that they want to see more women, doing more things, in superhero movies, and because we don’t have as many women as we should yet, they’re very, very sensitive to every single storyline that comes up right now. But I think what’s beautiful about what Joss did with Black Widow – I don’t think he makes her any weaker, he just brings this idea of love to a superhero, and I think that’s beautiful.

    If anything, Black Widow is much stronger than Banner. She protects him. She does her job, and basically they begin to have a relationship as friends, and I think it’s a misplaced anger. I think that what people might really be upset about is the fact that we need more superhuman women. The guys can do anything, they can have love affairs, they can be weak or strong and nobody raises an eyebrow. But when we do that with a woman, because there are so few storylines for women, we become hyper-critical of every single move that we make because there’s not much else to compare it to.

    So I know Joss really well. I know what his values are. And I think it’s sad, because in a lot of ways, there haven’t been as many champions in this universe as Joss is and will continue to be. And I know it hurts him. I know it’s heavy on him. And the guy’s one of the sweetest, best guys, and I know him – as far as any man can be a champion for women, he is that.

    So it’s been a little disheartening.

    But I also see how much people love that aspect of it. There’s an equal amount of people who find the love interest between Banner and Black Widow to be a big standout. And it’s very satisfying to people. So it’s a movie. People are going to have their opinions. And that’s actually a great thing. The fact that this is a debate that’s coming out of this movie is probably a positive thing.

    I just don’t think that people should get personal with Joss, because he really is – of anyone – an advocate for women. He’s a deeply committed feminist.

    IGN: “Would you like to see that?”
    Ruffalo: “I’d be completely interested in entertaining that.”
