1. Viggo Mortensen, Untitled Self-Portrait, 2012

    The Book of Viggo

    In-depth interview explores the roots of Viggo Mortensen's art, poetry, music, and publishing. The interviewer and Viggo talk about the scene at Beyond Baroque and other Venice venues in the 1980s, where he says, "musicians and poets mixed freely and performed together," his art exhibitions at LA galleries, and about the genesis and current activities of Perceval Press. And of course he is still creating, writing poetry, reverting to film photography, and writing the screenplay for Falling.
  2. The Hero Returns

    Tom Roston spent two days driving from Montana to Idaho with Viggo Mortensen and his son Henry. The resulting article includes conversations on LOTR, fame, commitment, exhaustion, sex appeal, eating roadkill, and philosophy. "You know, there are freakish and unexpected events that make up our lives. You have to be open to suffering a little."

    The New Hollywood Male

    Extensive in-depth article on Viggo's film career, his role as Aragorn, the challenge of dealing with new-found fame, creative pursuits, his relationship with Henry, the filming of Hidalgo, and philosophy of life. Wonderful photos by Terry Richardson. Excerpt: "Throughout an hour of conversation, these themes are woven into the fabric of every thought: an open mind; humility; doing your best; a constant quest to learn and enrich your life. 'There is only one kind of actor, and that's a supporting actor,' he says, meaning that even in a lead role you are always supporting the vision of the director. 'In a movie, you're raw material, just a hue of some colour and the director makes the painting.'"
