Multi-talented Viggo Mortensen is not just famous towards his career path as an actor, author, musician, photographer, poet, and painter but he is also famous for his relationship affairs.
Mortensen has double American-Danish citizenship and talks familiar English, Danish, and Spanish.
“It’s not a message movie, but it does speak to the value of communication, especially of listening to people and engaging with people you normally wouldn’t want to engage with.”Mortensen plans to ask his 28-year-old son, Henry, to accompany him to the ceremony.
Born in New York City, on October 20, 1958, to an American mother and a Danish father, Mortensen spent his first years in Manhattan and the rest of his youth living in Argentina, Venezuela, and Denmark.
Returning to Manhattan in the early '80s, he studied acting at Warren Robertson's Theatre Workshop and then embarked upon a stage career before moving to Los Angeles.
He then made another strong impression as Demi Moore's rough, tough, and buff training instructor in G. Jane (1997) and, the following year, he was one of the few redeeming features of A Perfect Murder, in which he supplied sexy menace (as well as his own art work) as Gwyneth Paltrow's murderous artist lover.
He allowed his softer side to come through in Tony Goldwyn's acclaimed A Walk on the Moon (1999), which cast him as the hippie lover of a dissatisfied housewife (Diane Lane) in Woodstock-era upstate New York.
There, he earned a Dramalogue Critics Award for his performance in a Coast Playhouse production of Bent and became a familiar figure on the L. punk scene (something that was aided by his brief marriage to Exene Cervenka, lead singer of the punk band X).
Following his debut in Witness, Mortensen began working steadily in a number of diverse films, becoming a familiar but not instantly recognizable face to filmgoers.
The only complication is that he’s also planning “a Hobbit reunion,” bringing together Elijah Wood, Sean Astin__, and other Middle Earth dwellers.“Maybe we can make them a combined event, I’m hoping,” he says.
Despite its underdog status, as Hooli boss Gavin Belson), Mortensen plays a hippie-anarchist dad who raises his kids in the woods, home-schooling them in everything from phys ed to anarcho-syndicalism.
After the death of his like-minded wife, he is forced to re-enter society and square off with his disapproving father-in-law (Frank Langella).
