Aaron Eckhart would kill for his loved ones, just like his 'Dark Knight' character Harvey 'Two-Face' Dent
Aaron Eckhart would kill for his family.
The actor can empathise with Harvey 'Two-Face' Dent, his character in Batman movie 'The Dark Knight', who vows to get his revenge on the person who murdered his fiancee.
He said: "If someone tortured and killed my fiancee would I go on a killing spree? I would think about it.
"It'd be difficult not to have vengeful feelings. I don't think you'd be a man if you didn't think those thoughts.
"If somebody blew up the girl I loved, and had been torturing the citizens of my city and I saw the Joker, I would kill him."
The actor also admitted he struggled to get female attention after making 'In The Company of Men', in which his character says: "I don't trust anything that bleeds for a week and doesn't die".
He explained to FHM magazine: "Women gave me a wide berth afterwards. Some women were physically repulsed by me. Even two years after the movie I was having a fitting for a suit and the shop girl couldn't cope. She didn't recognise me but just felt hugely uncomfortable.
"But then again, some women were attracted to it. A few said they knew my character was bad but it turned them on. One girl said, 'Your character's horrible but what are you doing on Monday?' "
