Theo James is once again starting our week with an amazing interview for Magazine Digital, in which this time around he talks to the magazine about the art behind his fragrance for Hugo Boss as their new ambassador for the new fragrance, The Scent. Read the translated interview down below, translated from Spanish to English:
It is an intense man in his eyes and gestures. About to turn 31 years, the first surprise of Theo James is his voice, modulated and very deep. The British sense of ironic and sarcastic humor, reveals once, like his study of the land before the world premiere of the new male fragrance from Hugo Boss in Barcelona: Tickets will dine and is very knowledgeable of the best restaurants area.
He studied philosophy and perhaps why, if the journalist is neglected, it may end up answering more questions than him. Always think before speaking and casts doubt on the air.

Does Studying philosophy has served for something in your career?
Not really. But I like to think that gives you the ability to see the world and question it.

The philosophy helps you to think for yourself, beyond the preset. Questioning without aggressiveness is good; It helps everyone can come to different conclusions richer.
