In a recent interview about his role in the new sci-fi horror film The Purge, in which violent crime is decriminalized for 12 hours every year by the U.S. government in order to release social tensions, actor Ethan Hawke discussed what crimes he secretly fantasizes about, free of legal repercussions.
Ethan Hawke dreams of being an eco-terrorist.
“If I was in a situation where I could get away with anything terrible that I wanted to get away with? Well, I have a secret fantasy of being an environmental terrorist — like when I see these oil spills and all these dead fish and the chopping down of forests, I’d love to slip just a little dynamite in somewhere. That would be where my inner demon lurks.”
