Nick Offerman On Hipsters, Happy Marriage And Vanity
One of the manliest men of our generation, Nick Offerman, recently had a candid interview with Men’s Journal through which the actor once again showed everyone how sexy we can be if we would only stop pretending and simply be a regular, everyday, normal guy (just like the dude in that famous youtube hit).
First things first. When Nick was asked how much his childhood helped him be one of the manliest specimens of Hollywood today, the Parks And Recreation star ditched the whole manliness theme as being a trend and an ephemeral “buzzword”.
“I’m lucky that I grew up in a family where I was taught to take care of myself. That included being able to do things like split firewood or change a tire, build a barn or a fence. But none of those are particularly manly tasks, and, you know, my young female cousins are generally better with an ax than I am,” Nick joked.
“I think manliness is a buzzword these days, what with all the cute guys in Brooklyn growing beards and wearing flannel. Those of us who can change our own tires, we were there before axes came in fashion and will be there after the guys move on to their next accessory. By the way, I’m predicting it’s going to be a unicycle.”
Marriage & Vanity
For those of you who don’t know about this amazing dude and his personal life, Nick is married to Megan Mullally, who played that awesome Karen Walker persona in “Will & Grace” (the only character that show was worth watching), so you can imagine how badass their marriage might be, and probably is.
So, according to Nick need to have “the ability to quell the inner voice that says, ‘I’m right, goddammit,’ and come around to understanding that we’re both right and we’re both wrong, so let’s make sweet love.”
We sure hope you are writing these down, because this is pure gold. As far as vanity is concerned, Nick also has bombshell up his sleeve.
“I have always found that the less I look in a mirror, the happier I am.”
Ladies and gentlemen, Nick Offerman.
