But he just doesn't scream "I'm famous." Plus, he's dressed like everyone around him, in a plaid flannel shirt, generic jeans (they're not even Levi's), and old black sneakers he got in Denmark a couple decades ago. Then he did something truly bizarre by Hollywood standards.
I ask Robin what Mortensen was like in high school. "He was a blond, beautiful, that's what he was."Mortensen has never been like the other boys and girls.
He has established himself as a painter and photographer.
He is popular for portraying his role in the movies 28 Days and A Walk on the Moon. He was from the middle-class family born as Viggo Peter Mortensen Jr.
Mortensen plays Ben, a father who has raised his six children in the Pacific Northwest but must integrate his kids into society after his wife's death.
Here are some new photos of Viggo Mortensen and his girlfriend Ariadna Gil in Madrid, Spain yesterday.
"I try."Clooney, I tell him, probably never picks anyone up at airports. "He's probably a lot busier than I am." here, in upstate New York, because Mortensen has taken some time off from his life in Madrid to care for his dying father. For the next eight hours, for about 250 miles, up to and around Watertown, through the Adirondacks and not quite to Canada—though he does ask if I brought my passport—with periodic stops at diners and waterfalls, lakes and trout ponds, his mother's grave and finally his father's farmhouse. Sometimes he drives cross-country, just for the hell of it. "They always do this thing where they try to upgrade me to some fancy fucking car." But he doesn't want a fancy fucking car. He is not in leaving Starbucks with his hand over his face. When he must go on the red carpet, you will not find him in a Dior tuxedo. Once, when asked whom he was wearing, Mortensen provided a name—Bambino Veira—and watched in bemusement as members of the Hollywood press dutifully wrote it down.
This is a remarkable feat for someone who looks like he does. Box-office smashes, all three of them, and they made him hugely famous (for a time) and rich.
He’s too much of a poet, I suppose, to get married again.
The actor of American nationality Viggo Mortensen and his Spanish girlfriend Ariadna Gil are still dating as far as the news of the tabloids is to be taken into consideration.
