Ethan Hawke told Elle magazine in their September issue his theories as to why his first marriage failed (he’s currently married to his kids’ nanny). You know what? Scratch that. The “failed” part. Just because you got divorced doesn’t mean you failed. If anything, realizing shit isn’t working out and getting out of a bad situation is a success. But wow, that is an entirely different post.
So, yeah. Ethan Hawke. Remember when he was married to Uma Thurman? They were married for about 6 years. They were kind of a big deal. Now Mr. Hawke is revealing why it didn’t work. Simply, he believes he was too young to be married. From Elle:
Success when you’re young is really overwhelming. The world felt out of control. And I wanted to stop it from spinning so fast. I thought marriage would decrease my variables or something. I was absolutely wrong. There was this discovery that the male brain isn’t done until 28. I definitely think my frontal lobe was not finished. I had no business taking vows that would last more than two weeks.
FYI, Hawke got married at 27. Which, yes, is young but it’s not like he was 16.
How young do you think is too young to get married?
