Max Irons refuses to work with his famous father


Max Irons has ruled out ever working with his actor father, Jeremy Irons, insisting it would be a "nightmare" to shoot a movie with him.

The younger Irons, whose mom, Sinead Cusack, is also a screen star, is adamant fans will never see him share scenes with Jeremy, as a father-son collaboration would be "really difficult."

"That's my nightmare. My mum maybe, but my dad ... that would be really difficult. Have you ever met him? He's a force of nature, I'll put it that way; he likes to make his voice heard on set, and I wouldn't be able to disentangle father and actor," he told Britain's Independent on Sunday. "No, keep well away from that."

The 27 year old also refuses to sign up for big-budget Hollywood movies just to boost his profile, adding, "Since 'X-Men,' our perceptions of what success is have changed. You hear of people my age earning $10 million on their second movie, and that's what we perceive as success ... There was a franchise that came in my direction and I said, 'I can't do it,' and my agent said, 'No, you need to do this, it will add another zero to your pay,' and I said, 'No, I can't. If I do it, I might want to give up.'"

You know unlike most of thes posers oops i mean posters, I feel it's a bit refreshing to find an actor who WANTS to make it on his own instead of trading on a more famous relative's reputation. Jeremy is by no doubts a fine and excellent actor, but at the age his son is now how famous was he?  Max is showing principles in what he chooses to show up in, not just saying ohhh, more shinies.

He could never compare to his fathers presence nor should he attempt to do so. Anyone should be himself or the character he or she would be portraying.

Jeremy Irons carried The Borgias miniseries on his BACK, and without him it would have been just a disgusting slasher movie with costumes. Of course, a lot of the story was devoted to his dealings with his unruly children, so maybe he used his own experience.
