March cover guy and RoboCop star Joel Kinnaman grew up in Sweden, went to high school in the States, and returned briefly to his birth country before working construction in Norway to fund a solo-trip to Southeast Asia. This is a guy who doesn’t stay comfortable. This is a guy who thinks on his feet—a guy who lives moment to moment. Take notes.
Tip 2: Get Uncomfortable
“I had this idea that so many people choose too early what they want to do,” Kinnaman said. “I didn’t’t want to make that mistake. I was going to see the world first…I had doubts [about Hollywood]. I had also said in a bunch of interviews in Swedish papers that I was going to go to the States, to give that a shot. Everyone said, ‘that’s so stupid—if nothing happens, you’re going to come home and look like a loser.’ But I did that intentionally, to put pressure on myself. I wasn’t going to come home empty-handed.”
