The 'Breaking Bad' actor also covers GQ and reveals his close brush with the kind of violence that defines his evil character on the AMC series.
Bryan Cranston was honored with a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 16. The "Breaking Bad" actor received the 2,502nd star on 1717 Vine Street in front of The Redbury Hotel. He was joined by his wife Robin Dearden and daughter Taylor Dearden.
The 57-year-old star was also supported by his "Breaking Bad" co-stars Aaron Paul, RJ Mitte, Anna Gunn and Bob Odenkirk. His "Malcom in the Middle" castmate Jane Kaczmarek was spotted coming to applaud him as well during the Tuesday ceremony.
Aside from getting Walk of Fame star, Cranson also graces the cover of GQ's latest issue. He opens up in his cover story that he was once stalked by an addict ex-girlfriend who hounded him to the point he was so frustrated that he almost killed her.
The actor, who plays a family guy turning into an evil drug lord on the AMC groundbreaking series, believes everyone has an evil side in them. "Yeah. I think it's right next to good, inside every person," he says, before dishing out, "I had one girlfriend I wanted to kill."
"I envisioned myself killing her. It was so clear. My apartment had a brick wall on one side, and I envisioned opening the door, grabbing her by the hair, dragging her inside, and shoving her head into that brick wall until brain matter was dripping down the sides of it," he said.
"Breaking Bad" will return Sunday, August 11, at 9 P.M. to air the second half of the last season. Of how his character's journey should come to end, he says, "I had notions. Like, 'What if he created this toxic world around him and, because of his actions, everybody he loved died and he had to stay alive?' "
"But then I'd think, 'He's wrought so much, he has to die. Doesn't he?' But if he dies, what does he die of? Maybe he dies of cancer," Cranston continues. "After all this other danger! But my true answer of how I wanted it to end, my honest answer, is this: however Vince Gilligan wants it to end."
