You also wield a mean shotgun. Was that a physical tool that you played around with before the shoot?
No, that they sort of handed to me on the day. I didn’t have much time to play around with the shotgun. But I’d been to a gun range before, and have fired those sorts of things before. Badly, I might add. Oh, I had a BB gun – my brother’s BB gun – when I was young. That was the only experience with guns that I’ve had.

The driving force behind the narrative is pre-destiny and the butterfly effect, but that’s not what I took away from Looper. I was moved by Bruce’s story pertaining to true love, and a man who will change fate to be with the woman he adores. How much of that do you believe in?
I do believe in that. I believe in change. I believe in redemption, and I think that’s what this movie is about, too … the redeeming qualities of love, and how profound that effect can be on people’s lives. And also, how much that can effect the cycle of things, even breaking the cycle of pain and destruction. I think that’s the theme that runs through Looper. Particularly a mother’s love. I really connected with that.

Looper opens in theaters on Friday, Sept. 28.
