Matthias is featured in the current The Journal issue of Mr Porter which features an amazing new photoshoot and great new interview. We have added the photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the interview can be found below/after the jump.
Mr Matthias Schoenaerts is languidly recounting how he almost missed one of the biggest events of his professional life – the London premiere of his new film The Danish Girl (not to mention this shoot for MR PORTER). “So my flight from Antwerp yesterday had already left when I got to the airport,” he says. “Then I drove to the railway station in Brussels, and missed the train by a minute. So I hightailed it to the Brussels airport. I landed, changed into my tuxedo in a restroom, and jumped into a car. I was still in Belgium at 4.00pm, and on the red carpet in London by 6.00pm.” He grins. “I kind of like flying by the seat of my pants.”
Today is a special day, because Matthias is celebrating his 38th birthday. We, on behave of the Matthias Schoenaerts Network and all his fans around the world, want to wish him a happy birthday. We hope he has a wonderful day celebrating with his family and friends. This year has been such an exciting year for Matthias’ career, and we are looking forward to what’s next.
Feel free to leave your birthday wish in our comments.
Matthias is featured in the current issue of Instyle USA (December 2015). We previously added the magazine scans in our gallery and we now have added the photoshoot in our gallery and the interview can be found below.
“Style is something you radiate,” says Matthias Schoenaerts, the puppy dog-eyed European actor who has a habit of playing sensitive brutes, from Rust & Bone’s MMA fighter to Suite Française’s German soldier to a strapping hunk in the upcoming transgender drama The Danish Girl. “You either have it or you don’t.”
Schoenaerts, wearing an off-white sweatshirt, a black denim jacket, and bright blue Lee jeans, has it in spades. He even appeared in a campaign for Louis Vuitton. Perched at a riverside bistro northwest of Antwerp, Schoenaerts’s one concession to inelegance is the Lucky Strike rollie he takes a drag from. Running his hands through an impressive quiff, he smiles. “But style rules? No. I don’t pay attention to them,” he says, snubbing out the cigarette on the floor despite the ashtray in reach. A thin twirl of smoke lifts toward the yellow sky from the glowing ember. Schoenaerts extinguishes it with his Nike-clad foot and says, “I just have a basic sense of elegance, I guess.”
The American Film Institute’s AFI Fest has announced that “Disorder” (Maryland) will be part of this year’s line up as part of the New Auteurs programme.

Rock legend Marianne Lane is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul when iconoclast record producer and old flame Harry unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope and interrupts their holiday, bringing with him an A-bomb blast of nostalgia from which there can be no rescue. A Bigger Splash is a sensuous portrait of desire, jealousy and rock and roll, under the Mediterranean sun.
