There’s a “Velvet Goldmine” article in the latest Select Magazine basically blasting the film’s bad buzz. Bad buzz? Winning an award at Cannes and the Edinburgh Film Festival does not sound like bad buzz now does it? Also has an interview with Todd Haynes.
Jonathan is featured in the October/November 1998 Jump Magazine as one of 5 future famous faces to watch for. They spell his last name wrong but it’s still pretty cool. You can email a thank you to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, September’s British Esquire has a “Velvet Goldmine” article with interviews with Jonathan and Ewan McGregor plus some new images. Jonny was also on a recent weekend edition of Entertainment Tonight where clips from VG were shown.
Due to a delayed plane, Jonathan was late to the premiere of “Velvet Goldmine” at the Edinburgh Film Festival. Jonny recently did a lot of press in New York and London, so be on the look-out for interviews and features in the coming months. Right now, he is vacationing in Africa before he is off to Rome to film “Titus Andronicus”, which has been confirmed.
Recently learned that Jonny was in a film that was completed last April – “The Loss of Sexual Innocence”, starring Julian Sands and Saffron Burrows. Directed by the acclaimed Mike Figgis (“Leaving Las Vegas”, “One Night Stand”), the film is a non-linear collection of short stories about the phases and complexities of sexual activity. Jonny sure likes making films that deal with sex eh? The film was recently picked up by Sony Pictures Classics, who will release it here in the US. It will premiere at the upcoming Venice...
There is a great article and picture of Jonathan in the new Rolling Stone hot issue – picked as a hot actor. Very cool.
