Warning: There are major spoilers in this video, so if you would like to be kept in the dark about what happens in the film, who Pet is, and what happens in the book, please come back to this video after you have seen the film.
Max Irons and Jake Abel have been the highlight of many interviews in the past month. They have a good time and are not afraid to make fun of themselves. Our interview with them on Saturday morning was no different.
The guys talked about a few mishaps from the reception the previous night, the bonding of Jake and Boyd (Ian and Kyle) playing brothers off screen since little of it made it on-screen, Max learning an American accent, Jake switching from Wanderer in Melanie’s body to Wanderer in Pet’s body, character development, favorite scene to film, Max’s phobia of butterflies/moths, the friendship of the actors off screen, Jake’s mixture of good and bad characters, Jake’s next project coming out (Percy Jackson) and a previous one (Supernatural), Max’s Bieber knowledge, a scene that was left out of the final film, Jake’s tattoo, what Jake and Max have from the set, Max’s relationship with Chandler off camera, and how the new actress picks up Saoirse’s mannerisms to continue the character of Wanda.
There are a couple spots where the video goes out (very briefly) but the audio still plays, so you can still here the guys’ answers and the questions. The audio also echos a little at the end, but not to the point where it interferes with the questions and responses.

Twilight writer Stephenie Meyer is gearing up for the film adaptation of her sci-fi novel The Host, and she sat down with ET to address the inevitable comparisons that will be drawn between the two projects.
“It’s a double-edged sword,” Meyer admitted when questioned about her feelings surrounding the high expectations of the film, based on the success of Twilight. “On the one hand this movie wouldn’t have been made without [Twilight], so obviously that’s a really good thing. But with all the Twilight positivity that is out there, there’s an equal — if not greater — share of negativity.”
The film follows star-crossed lovers (Saoirse Ronan and Max Irons) struggling to survive in a world overcome by invading alien “souls.”
Irons expressed similar sentiments concerning the inordinate press that they will encounter.
“It’s great to have a built-in fan base,” said Irons. “But I do truly believe that this is a very different film.”
“I think it’s a little more complex — this story — than Twilight,” Diane Kruger agreed. “If one third of the fans of Twilight show up, that would be great.”
As the movie also features a love triangle, involving Ronan, Irons and Jake Abel, there were a few steamy love scenes in the movie. Ronan opened up about the dynamic between her and her male co-stars on set.
“I think always with that first take it’s a bit awkward and you’re a bit nervous,” Ronan admitted. “But then you just get over it, because you know you have to do it.”
The Host opens March 29.

Max Irons and Jake Abel tell Access why they don’t expect “The Host” to experience the same phenomenon “The Twilight Saga” had. Also, the duo talks about why it was “quite a feat” for co-star Saoirse Ronan to portray two different characters.
I am not sure if this is 100% sure, but let’s hope it is!
The British actor is confirmed to join Lone Sherfig’s film adaptation of Laura Wade’s play.
Max Irons, son of Jeremy Irons and star of the forthcoming Stephenie Meyer project The Host, is confirmed to join the film adaptation of Posh, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
According to a report from The Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye, Irons was circling the project alongside Sam Clafin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Douglas Booth (Romeo and Juliet) and Robert Pattinson — who is said to be in very early discussions. According to THR’s source, “I think he’s being circled more than he’s circling.”
Posh, a play by Laura Wade that launched the careers of Kit Harington, Joshua McGuire, Tom Milson and David Dawson, centers around the fictional Riot Club — an elite Oxbridge dining society — which meets regularly in the a private dining room of a pub. The film is being helmed by An Education director Lone Sherfig.
Posh opened at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2010.
Irons previously starred in Red Riding Hood and can be seen in Andrew Niccol’s The Host opposite Saoirse Ronan later this month. He is repped by UTA and Tavistock Wood Management in the UK.
TO THE MAX
British actor Max Irons, 27, is starring in what’s set to be one of biggest films of the year, The Host. Oh, and the biggest TV series of the year, The White Queen, too.
We thought you might like to get better acquainted with him…
On the rumours about him dating co-star Saorise Ronan…
Well she’s 18 so no, I don’t think so.
On the idea of being an actor for the rest of his life…
It’s quite an unnvering thought. I’ve been away for 9 months of this year and you realise that means you lose contact with friends. Relationships are very difficult and finding a place that you can truly call home is tough.
On living the Hollywood life…
I’ve nothing against LA but I know that I wouldn’t want to live there. It is a movie town, it’s such an unreal existence that it’s important to get out of that. You go to a lot of meetings where people say the nicest things to you in the world. You take it with a pinch of salt but you start to believe it and that’s the really dangerous part – when you start to believe your own hype.
On being quite geeky…
I’m a bit of a dork. I love science. I have really weird obsessions – submarines, spaceships,
