Action movie star Jason Statham, who can be seen in The Mechanic in theaters this Friday, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Men’s Journal magazine. In his coverstory interview, Statham expresses his distaste for fake stunts in films & John Mayer‘s fake watch … and he offers no info at all about his relationship with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. But he does pose for a few fun pub photos so, there’s that.
In the February issue of Men’s Journal, Jason Statham opens up about his past life selling fake watches and doing his own stunts. Green-screen work “makes my blood boil,” Statham tells writer Erik Hedegaard. “In The Mechanic, did you see me jump off the bridge? That’s a real stunt. Free fall! I love shit like that!” What’s not real, Statham says, is John Mayer’s watch – he wants to see paperwork. “It’s like saying, ‘This is the Mona Lisa, but it’s not signed, because da Vinci did two, and this one — he just forgot to sign it — but it’s him for sure,’” Statham says. As for his girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Statham refuses to give up any details. “I’ve got my girlie, and she’s precious to me,” he says. “If you say nothing, you can’t get fucked over. So I’m saying nothing.”

Personally, I prefer Statham photoshoots that feature much less clothing … but I prefer any photoshoots over his interviews ;) The man is deffo a hottie who, IMHO, does a better job posing for photos than giving interviews.
