Wading through the process of acting never stopped him. In fact, Goldblum has been working as an actor since he did “Shakespeare in the Park” as a teenager. “When you go through this process it’s the antidote to this poisonous notion that you have to worry about the future,” says Goldblum, 56, who’s wearing a charcoal suit, white dress shirt and narrow, knitted green tie.
“It’s pointless to worry about the future because there is no such thing. There’s only now. In fact, if you contemplate the future with too much psychological attachment and too anxiously – it’s true you don’t have the resources (to rise to the role) because you’re not there. But once you get there, you start to trust more and more: ‘I’ll get there and I’ll be supplied with just enough to do it.”‘
