Aaron Johnson and Sam Taylor Wood

The recently released film Kick Ass is already causing some controversy, but the crude language and gratuitous violence can’t overshadow the film’s star, British actor Aaron Johnson.

Though he is in a rather violent role currently, his acting hasn’t always been so action-packed. He recently portrayed music legend John Lennon in the film Nowhere Boy (a role for which he won a Jameson Empire Award last weekend!). He has also been in the stage productions of Hamlet and All My Sons, the television shows Feather Boy and Nearly Famous and the films the Illusionist and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.

Though he undoubtedly has been blessed with charming good looks, he found his teen heartthrob status after Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging to be a bit unsettling. In fact, that’s why he jumped at the opportunity to play an awkward killer in Kick Ass.

Though Johnson is only 19-years-old, he already has a family on his mind. He met 43-year-old  Sam Taylor Wood when she directed him in Nowhere Boy, and the couple quickly got engaged. They are expecting their first child together soon, and he has already announced that he will take a break from film to “be a dad.” Good luck, Aaron!

Kick Ass is in cinemas now.
