Mark Ruffalo on Showy Roles

It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours for Mark Ruffalo after being nominated for his first Oscar as Best Supporting Actor in The Kids Are All Right.

Speakeasy talked with the actor about his acting style and how he’s going to handle the next month.

Your gave a very low-key performance in “The Kids Are All Right.” Are those harder to do than big showy roles?

They’re certainly harder to be seen for, you know. I’m pleasantly surprised that I was included in the list. My work tends to be a little more low-key. I don’t see myself as an Oscar contender generally because of that. I’m completely blown away and so grateful that I am being considered and people have taken notice of it.

What’s the key to handling awards season hoopla?

I don’t know. One thing I know is I’ve been doing this for 20 years and it’s taken me 20 to get here. In another 20, I may be dead. I’ve been really trying to enjoy it and soak it up and really be grateful for it. It’s easy to be cynical about these things. But I’ve been in the trenches long enough and on the outside long enough that you have to enjoy it when it comes along.
