And you can read Aaron’s interview with the magazine below.

The film feels grounded for a blockbuster…
It’s good to use real people, because you want that raw, natural vibe. Gareth’s great at doing that. He did it in Monsters, you know? I asked him how he got those performances. He asked people a bunch of different questions and filmed it. So you’d have Scoot [McNairy] asking them about aliens but really they were talking about where the nearest McDonald’s was.

How did you get into shape to play Ford?
Jim Beaver has worked on a lot of army movies, from Black Hawk Dawn to Battle: Los Angeles. He’s been a marine since he was a kid. He trained me on how to use weapons, wear the gear, the military mindset… I touch base with him every day. The role is physically demanding – I’m in helicopters, trucks, trains; we’re moving giant missiles, stuff like that.

You’ve pumped up. Lots of time in the gym?
I train twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. An hour and a half each session. Six days a week. When you start filming, it’s fucking tricky. You have to get up at five in the morning to slip in an hour.

How have you found working on a movie of this scale?
There’s not been a lot of greenscreen. They’ll smash up the fucking buildings instead of doing it in a studio. You feel it a lot more. There have been a few things where it’s like, ‘OK, the creatures rising up, he’s attacking…’ But again, you talk about it and they have pre-viz, so you’re like, ‘I see, oh fucking hell, he’s doing that…’ At first I did too much. I was like, ‘OK, I’m looking at that and I’m fucking shocked!’ But the chaos is already all around you. Keep it simple.

And for those that want to read the interview, you can check that out below and under the “read more.”

Aaron Taylor-Johnson lets out a roar. It sounds like a cross between the growl of a bear protecting her cubs and a whale’s mating call. It’s loud and menacing, and just about everybody in this Japanese toy store turns to stare at him. Taylor-Johnson is trying to demonstrate how he manufactured genuine-looking terror for his role in Godzilla, a new big-budget take on the sci-fi classic, opening May 16. He plays a Navy lieutenant who’s trying to return home to his wife when his journey is cut short by a certain large, mutant lizard. During filming, Taylor-Johnson had no actual monster to react to – Godzilla was added later via CGI – so director Gareth Edwards used his laptop to create sound effects that he piped through speakers when his actors least expected it.

“He’d pop the bass, and if you didn’t know it was coming, it was seriously frightening,” says Taylor-Johnson. He does the Godzilla growl again, and it’s even more snarly. A few people nearby eye him nervously and start heading toward the exit. We’re in L.A.’s Little Tokyo neighborhood at Anime Jungle, a hobby shop with thousands of Japanese-made toys and movie collectibles. Taylor-Johnson looked out of place the moment he walked in – he’s a bit more muscular and rugged-looking than the typical clientele – and the Godzilla caterwauling has only made him stick out even more like, well, a mutant lizard.

And for those interested in the interview itself, you can read it below. Enjoy!

“SHUT THE FUCK UP! I have flawless skin!”

It’s late February at a popular West Hollywood restaurant and Aaron Taylor-Johnson is shamelessly eavesdropping. To his credit, it’s kind of impossible not to, what with the very pretty television star seated at the next table, aggressively confronting a friend about exfoliation.

Taylor-Johnson leans in, whispering: “Some of these conversations you hear in L.A. are fucking hilarious.” Sipping a Bloody Mary – a habit he picked up back home in London – he recalls a recent hike in nearby Runyon Canyon where he witnessed two young women talking about the fate of deposed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Just kidding. They were talking about plastic surgery. In a perfect American accent, he replays a line: “I just want to get a face-lift and that’s my choice. And he was like, ‘Well, I just like your face the way it is’”

It’s a funny anecdote, if a cliched one: women in Hollywood talking about a little nip-tuck. But his bemused expression speaks volumes about where he’s at right now – as an actor with a capital A who finds himself starring in a risky multimillion dollar reboot of Godzilla. Perhaps even more surprising is that he’s putting down roots in town, closing on a $4 million house in the Hollywood Hills, though he’d be the first to admit: It’s hard out there for a bloke.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson questioned Godzilla credibility

Aaron Taylor-Johnson doubted the credibility of a ‘Godzilla’ remake.

The 23-year-old actor – who will star alongside Bryan Cranston in the upcoming sci-fi flick – has admitted that he was sceptical about appearing in the film until he heard Gareth Edwards was directing.

He said: ”My first thought was, ‘Really? Another ‘Godzilla’?’ [But] with someone like that behind it, you go, ‘Okay, let me see what he has to say…”’

The ‘Savages’ star also admitted that having worked with the ‘Godzilla’ cinematographer on ‘Anna Karenina’ and ‘Nowhere Boy’ convinced him the film wouldn’t be a flop.

He said: ”And then it was Seamus Garvey shooting it, who I’ve worked with a bunch of times now and he’s a fantastic cinematographer.”

Taylor-Johnson was also swayed by the star-studded cast which includes ‘Breaking Bad’ star Bryan, Elizabeth Olsen and Juliette Binoche.

He added in an interview with Empire magazine: ”Then you get a list of people like Bryan, Lizzie Olsen, Juliette Binoche…And then you go, ‘Here’s someone who’s trying to push the boundaries of the blockbuster!’
