Viggo mortensen still dating ariadna gil
He’s too much of a poet, I suppose, to get married again. At tonight's Academy Awards, Viggo Mortensen has been nominated for Best Actor for his role in Captain Fantastic.
Here are some new photos of Viggo Mortensen and his girlfriend Ariadna Gil in Madrid, Spain yesterday.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.But he just doesn't scream "I'm famous." Plus, he's dressed like everyone around him, in a plaid flannel shirt, generic jeans (they're not even Levi's), and old black sneakers he got in Denmark a couple decades ago. Then he did something truly bizarre by Hollywood standards.Since 2009, the actor has been in a relationship with Spanish actress Ariadna Gil.According to a 2016 Esquire piece about him, Mortensen lives with his girlfriend in Madrid.Mortensen plays Ben, a father who has raised his six children in the Pacific Northwest but must integrate his kids into society after his wife's death.
Mortensen is a Danish-American actor, and was married to actress and singer Exene Cervenka from 1987 to 1998.
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.
He had the world by the balls, with his pick of roles—big studio stuff, Clooney kind of stuff, paycheck stuff.
He's prepared a gift bag."You can smoke in the car," Mortensen says, gesturing with his own smoldering American Spirit. To see him to the end, same as he did for his mother, Grace, who passed away a year ago. His father, also named Viggo Peter Mortensen, not so much. The old man is in Watertown, an hour and a half from the Syracuse airport, where Mortensen went to high school and where we are headed now. At times, he spontaneously pulls over to the side of the road for a good five or ten minutes to finish a train of thought—about life or death or demons or fears or his favorite soccer team in Argentina, San Lorenzo. Veira was a soccer player in Argentina.) He lives in Madrid, and he works when he wants to work, doing whatever he feels like doing.
"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.
Two years later, another Cronenberg film Eastern Promises (2007) earned him further critical acclaim and a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor.
