Ethan Hawke's Spiritual Approach to Acting, Life, and Social Change
3 days ago
Ethan Hawke joins me on the podcast for wide ranging conversation covering art, politics, spirirtuality, the environment, and more. He describes working with Robin Williams on Dead Poets Society, why he finds the most creative fullfillment in music not acting, and what he calls the "spiritual marriage" between an actor and director. He opens up about how his own spiritual journey, his admiration for the work of Thomas Murton, and his thoughts on the social responsibility of religious leaders influenced his performance as a parish pastor in his latest film First Reformed. Plus Ethan talks about what he calls the velocity of depression, why he’s not afraid to take long breaks from the silver screen, his work with the YMCA to help kids overcome divisiveness, and his upcoming project about our favorite “mad scientist” Nicola Tesla. See Ethan Hawke in Paul Schraeder's brilliant film First Reformed now playing in theaters. Today's episode was sponsored by Adiamor Jewelry.
