Sam Rockwell, the actor who falls better the worse the villain he plays, star of our November cover | ICON

It is very possible that he knew Sam Rockwell long before, at the last Oscars, he won the award for best supporting actor for his role in Three advertisements on the outskirts. An actor since he was a child, the Californian had signed stellar performances in Confessions of a dangerous mind (2002) the Moon (2009), but it has been the role of a racist, sexist and innocent police officer that brings him the most joy, while generating some controversy over the empathy towards the character that Rockwell has managed to provoke with his performance. About this, and many other issues, the actor speaks to us from the cover of our new issue, free with EL PAÍS on Saturday, November 3 and on sale the rest of the month for 3.5 euros.

The interpreter has not rested on his laurels and in the coming months we will be able to see him in other equally tricky roles. It will be President George W. Bush in the imminent Vice, along with an unrecognizable Christian Bale as Dick Cheney, and will also get into the shoes of a Nazi in Jojo Rabbit and in that of a repentant member of the Ku Klux Klan in The best of enemies. “Acting is not politically correct,” he admits, “It consists of taking everything out of the subconscious and telling stories, catharsis …”.

He is not the only actor walking through the pages of this issue of ICON. Paco León, also a director, introduces us to Debi Mazar, an American actress who has become his Ava Gardner for the Movistar + series Madrid burns. The meeting and the photo session took place in Casa Salvador, which still preserves the atmosphere of that Spain that the Hollywood diva met, in the grayest years of Franco, although she saw everything in Technicolor. “Ava was a very brave woman and Debi also has that night, that thing she enjoys, that vomit-proof glamor,” says the Sevillian in this issue of ICON.

And from a saga as Andalusian as the Leóns to another Argentine and just as illustrious. Chino Darín, Ricardo’s son, also appears on these pages with an interview in which he confesses that neither the inherited talent nor his growing filmography make him look like a consolidated actor. “That adjective makes me very embarrassed. For now I can only say that I have stopped looking for a plan B in my life because at the moment the cinema serves as a means of subsistence. As a refuge and torment at the same time, ”says the actor, whom we will soon see with Adriana Ugarte in During the storm.

And from cinema, to fashion, from the hand of the American designer Tommy Hilfiger, whom we accompanied to Shanghai to attend the presentation of the first collection he has made in collaboration with Lewis Hamilton, TommyxLewis. “He is a stellar athlete and is passionate about fashion. We are a perfect marriage and we are producing fantastic babies ”, says the veteran couturier about his relationship with the pilot who has just been proclaimed world champion of Formula 1 for the sixth time.

And there are still more. The singer Mala Rodríguez or the writers Emmanuel Carrère and Nathan Hill are other characters that await you in the November issue of the magazine. From this Saturday, in your kiosk.
