This is significantly higher compared to 17.6% of all women (all races) who have been raped in their lifetime.
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.The list of historical figures whose lives have been reexamined in recent years in order to tinker with sexual reputations is both long and illustrious.The targets are usually male, preferably canonical and the revelatory sources of information are usually cast as “long-ignored” or “long-suppressed”—sometimes nothing more than a suspiciously worded journal entry or letter, sometimes an account by a lover or contemporary.This summer, the quintessentially un-Hollywood Viggo Mortensen stars in a film about a father of six who rejects the world to raise his kids completely off the grid. We are curbside at the tiny airport in Syracuse, New York, on a truly dreary day (even by Syracuse standards), and within seconds of hopping into his rented Ford Fusion, I learn two things about him: He's the kind of guy who picks you up at the airport, and he's the kind of guy who brings presents. ("It was there.") About how much he loves the militant Chomskyite he plays in , a father of six who decides to raise his kids in the isolated wilderness of the Pacific Northwest. with Harrison Ford, and the public got to lay its eyes on him for the first time. It would be another sixteen years and at least as many (mostly obscure) roles before he would acquire true fame.How much does this character resemble the actor himself? We could've gone straight to Watertown and stayed there, and we could've gotten there a hell of a lot faster, but Mortensen, his two hands resting gently on the bottom of the steering wheel, doesn't like to drive too fast. Two and a half hours into our journey, Mortensen and I stop for coffee at a joint he likes because his mother used to go there as a teenager. We sit at the bar, and no one seems to recognize him, not even the pretty bartendress he chats up about Syracuse basketball. He was offered the role only when another actor, Stuart Townsend, was dropped at the last minute, and he took it only because his then-eleven-year-old son, Henry, had read (and loved) the Tolkien trilogy and convinced him to do it.[with] no appetites, no passions.” In the 20th century, however, scholars dismantled the crust around Hank’s heart and began to admit that his combination of misogyny and Whitman-esque man-love often sound more homosexual than asexual.Thoreau-guru Walter Harding, for instance, drew attention in a 1991 article in The Journal of Homosexuality to Thoreau’s fondness for watching nude male swimmers, his blatantly sexual journalized fantasies about muscular male bodies and even phallic-shaped plants, and his voluminous library of homoerotic classical literature before concluding that Thoreau’s “actions and words …The following contains current and historical information for internal and external distribution.This information is based on FBI records and is updated by the Investigative Publicity and Public Affairs Unit, Office of Public Affairs. "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.
