Lone wolf, pig-headed, punkrocker in spirit: Just how VIGGO MORTENSEN became a folk hero and a sex symbol

Synopsis: This interviewer portrays Viggo Mortensen as a lone wolf, "the most rebellious star who ever got on the list of the 50 most beautiful people of the US-glamour-People magazine," a man who "avoids mirrors and hates parties." The article focuses on Viggo's work in The Lord of the Rings and other films, and on the success of his art and music.
