Joel Edgerton Interview – Loving – “I’ve taken a lot of risks. More than sense should allow”



Growing up outside Sydney, Joel Edgerton never encountered any form of bigotry. “I’ve never experienced injustice, I’ve coasted through life in that way you know, an upper mid class white guy living in Australia, it was never part of my existence or thought process. It’s always been smooth sailing.”


Q: Ruth mentioned that she worried Loving would go away, did you have the same worries?

EDGERTON: I really was convinced it would never happen. It’s that normal reaction of believing if you talk about something you want, or thinking about it too much, it won’t happen, and I was convinced. That it’s cursed and jinxed [laughs]…
