Tye Sheridan Kept Running into Walls When He Was Filming “X-Men”

He might look fierce Cyclops as "X-Men," but it turns out the 19-year-old actor couldn't stop laughing – or running into walls – when filming in his goggles. He talks "The Tree of Life," the "emotional experience" of watching "Inside Out," and his love for Natalie Portman with Lynn Hirschberg.

When I was 11 years old, when I finished Tree of Life,
00:06
I was definitely interested and intrigued by filmmaking,
00:09
but I don't think it was until my second or third film
00:12
that I really started to fall in love
00:14
with the art of cinema.
00:16
We wrapped XMen, shot in Montreal, Canada.
00:20
We were there for five months.
00:22
I play Scott Summers, or Cyclops,
00:24
the guy who shoots lasers out of his eyes.
00:26
I, basically, in the film, I just take off my glasses
00:29
and then stare at someone really intensely.
00:32
[crew laughing]
00:33
At times I think,
00:34
it's hard not to laugh.
00:36
I feel like everyone else's super powers are cool
00:39
because they get to do stuff with their hands.
00:41
And they're like, you know like,
00:43
Magneto's stopping metal, and then Storm
00:45
is creating a storm, and then I'm just like
00:48
staring at someone really intently and growling.
00:52
[crew laughing]
00:54
So quite weird.
00:55
The sunglasses are these retro 80s RayBans
01:00
and then just have this plastic lining around them,
01:03
which cups over my eyes.
01:05
So it's hard to see anything already,
01:07
plus with the cupping around the glasses,
01:09
my peripheral vision is gone.
01:11
So I'm basically looking through a box
01:14
and through double red lenses.
01:16
There were so many times where I'm running into the wall
01:19
or missing my mark.
01:22
Yeah, it was a learning curve for sure.
01:24
First time watching Inside Out,
01:25
I think was a very emotional experience.
01:27
I don't know, there's something about animation
01:29
that allows you, you just feel like a kid watching it.
01:32
And so you feel like you're allowed to cry.
01:35
I love Natalie Portman.
01:36
Not only is she an incredible actress,
01:39
but I think she's very pretty.
01:40
I don't know what I saw Rachel McAdams in first.
01:43
I don't think it was Mean Girls.
01:45
I love her in To The Wonder.
01:46
I love To The Wonder, I love that film.
01:49
I watched it, the first time I watched it,
01:51
I stopped, I started it over immediately
01:54
and watched it again.
01:56
Yeah, real fan.
01:58
You know, my favorite romcom, my guilty pleasure movie
02:03
would be Crazy Stupid Love.
02:05
I remember when that movie came out.
02:07
I just watched it over and over and over.
02:09
I was obsessed with Ryan Gosling in that movie
02:13
and how he talked to girls.
02:15
Merle Haggard just passed away.
02:18
I think for me he's royal.
02:20
And my Dad recently texted me.
02:24
This is a few days after he passed away,
02:26
and he said there's this Merle Haggard song
02:28
that I think describes you the best.
02:31
It's a song called Ramblin' Fever.
02:34
My hat don't hang on the same nail too long.
02:37
My ears can't stand to hear the same old song.
02:42
But it's just talkin' about this thing that's inside of him
02:44
where he just, he can't settle down.
02:47
I feel like I have that.
02:49
[Interviewer] You're restless.
02:50
Exactly, restless soul.
