Peter Dinklage Covers Rolling Stone
The 42-year-old actress saddled up for the Mark Seliger shot spread while talking to the publication about overcoming his lack of height to wear his different appearance proudly - like armor.
Highlights from Mr Dinklage's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Rolling Stone!
On dealing with his lack of height:
"When you're reminded so much of who you are by people - not a fame thing, but with my size - you either curl up in a corner or you wear it proudly, like armor."
On finding serious acting jobs:
“It was hard. I was wondering, ‘How am I going to pay the rent?’ You need the work, that’s how you make your living. But I’m going to play roles that are appropriate to my size – it’s all about how real it is.”
On getting better when it comes to women:
"I was socially a little bit of a mess, in terms of confidence with the other half. You get a little older, you get comfortable. Women respond to comfort, and a sense of humor. I was always able to make them laugh, so that helps a lot. Woman on the whole are often not as shallow as men are. They can be, but they cut through things a little more easily than men do in terms of that superficial stuff."
