MEET THE SEXIEST MAN IN HISTORY — CAN YAMAN
1: But why are you always topless in your new program “Early bird “?
I am not constantly topless (laughing). It is recorded in summer and the character has a visual physical image with the albatross tattoo; he obviously does sports. It will all change as he will cover up in winter.
2: In the past sexy actresses got very high ratings and now muscular men are in the same category. Do you feel like commodity?
The important thing is that the scene fits the script and no I don’t feel like a commodity. I had a period of preparation for the character. I did sports five days a week and turned the garden into a gym. I am genetically lucky and if it helps ratings that’s good.
3: We have always seen you on the screen in romantic parts. Would you consider a period acting role?
I can act in any role that I like as long as I can prepare for it. Also being a romantic comedy figure is not an easy task.
4: Your name is mentioned amongst the greats like Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ, Kenan İmirzalıoğlu and Çağatay Ulusoy, how do you feel?
It is an honor to be compared to other talented actors. But I consider myself to be in a different place and I cannot compare myself. I am a person who works very hard and use my authenticity.
5: How does a woman affect you?
I don’t look only at their physique but at everything, the whole picture. Women with expression, aura, charm, nobility, energy and having a good sense of humor attract me.
6: Are you macho or not?
I am a gentleman when it’s necessary and also macho sometimes. But above all I consider myself to be gentleman. The truth is I´m a bit of everything. But if a woman or a man harasses me, I feel uncomfortable like any human being.
7: They call you the sexiest man in Turkey, but in your life where does sex sit?
Someone without sexual energy is very unhappy in my opinion. This is as important to me just like all natural healthy people. If you want to know more about me study my horoscope. My star sign is scorpion. That will give you an insight to me … (laughing).
8: You made a statement on social networks that you would never play a gay role. Twitter fans asked questions and it was my father who answered. I usually choose characters that are parallel to my inner world and can reflect me. At the same time I do not believe that I could act as a murderer. However, I could find my inner anger and work this into the role. But the other is something I could not do. I want to make it clear that I am not homophobic.
