Once in a while people hear news of actors and actresses crying over their own movies or getting embarrassed every time they see their faces on screen. Apparently the new recruit of the group is star Aaron Taylor-Johnson who happens to admit the same things as his new movie "Godzilla" hit theatres on May 15, 2014.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, whose name recently graced the headlines after his wife Sam Taylor Wood confirmed that he is appearing in the upcoming Valentine's Day movie "Fifty Shades of Grey," is reported to have cried while watching the new "Godzilla" movie.
The List reported that the 23-year-old actor has opened up and admitted that seeing the performances of his co-actors Bryan Cranston, playing the role of Joe Brody, and Juliette Binoche, playing the role of Sandra Brody, has made him cry.
"The first 10-15 minutes, the performance from Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche, I was trying to suppress and hold back tears," Aaron Taylor Johnson admits in the report.
According to the Taylor-Johnson, he didn't know if crying was the right move as it appears "Godzilla" is a "monster" movie, but the actor has to cry since according to his explanation he has no way of stopping it.
But aside from crying, the new "Fifty Shades of Grey" actor also admitted that he gets "embarrassed" every time he watch himself act on screen that he preferred to watch "Godzilla" by himself.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson is playing the role of Lieutenant Ford Brody in the movie. A little digging around the Web shows that the new "Godzilla" movie is a reboot of the famous monster movie that was first introduced to the public in 1954. It appears that it is a science fiction that originated in Japan, which after its first release attracted several "Godzilla" movie remakes.
"This mythical monster has been kind of watered down all this time, and we've tried to bring it back to its roots and embrace that message of nature's beast responding to radioactive pollution," Gareth Edwards, director of the new "Godzilla" movie told Los Angeles Daily News.
The director also added that the idea of the movie is to treat the giant monster like a real animal.
In an interview with Collider.com, Aaron Taylor-Johnson revealed that he is proud of how the new "Godzilla" movie turns out.
