Actor Vincent Kartheiser who stars in AMC’s critically acclaimed series “Mad Men,” says that he has no trouble identifying with his character because both of them are white and well off.
Kartheiser is also starring in the new Justin Timberlake movie, “In Time.”
The Huffington Post reports:
“It’s pretty easy. I’m a white America,” Kartheiser said. “We’re all kind of born with a silver spoon in our mouth. We’re all much luckier than people born in Bolivia or West Africa.”
“I’m the luckiest guy in the world. I would love it if you would put this in your magazine,” he told Vulture (of NY Magazine) last October. “I realize that my career is 99 percent luck, if not 99.9 percent luck. The fact that I’m born in America, and America has control over all these other colonies, and enslaved all these other countries — I mean, there are so many things that have happened in my life that make me so lucky.”
