In the new issue of ELLE, actor Ethan Hawke admits that he had no business marrying Uma Thurman.
Us Weekly reports that Hawke admits that he was far too immature to get married, but thought that settling down with a woman would help put some stability in his life.
“Success when you're young is really overwhelming," he tells ELLE. "The world felt out of control. And I wanted to stop it from spinning so fast. I thought marriage would decrease my variables or something. I was absolutely wrong."
Hawke wed Thurman when he was 27-years-old and the couple divorced six years later.
“There was this discovery that the male brain isn't done until 28. I definitely think my frontal lobe was not finished," he confesses. "I had no business taking vows that would last more than two weeks."
Still, Hawke seems to believe that marriage just isn’t something for him, comparing himself to the likes of New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter who he says, “He lives his life like, 'Hey man, I play shortstop for the New York Yankees. And I’m not going to get married until I’m no longer a shortstop for the New York Yankees.' Which is incredibly smart.”
Hawke is currently filming Predestination, which focuses on the life of a time-traveling agent.
