James Van Der Beek: 'I've learnt to relax'

15 February 2010 [15:32] - TODAY.AZ
James Van Der Beek has revealed that he has learned not to take acting so seriously.
In an interview with Parade, the Mercy star explained that he changed his perspective after one of his films flopped.

"I did a movie called Angus, which everyone told me was going to make my career and it was a big failure," he said. "That's when I basically learned to take everything with a grain of salt.

"I went backpacking through Europe for six months with no money, just a Eurorail pass and a hostel card. It was one of the best experiences of my life. And then I came back and got the role on Dawson's Creek. And I've never looked back."

Van Der Beek added that it is important to "relax", saying: "Enjoy the process, learn everything you can, and don't take things so seriously. I can relax a little bit now. One of the things that age has given me is the ability to just relax and kind of enjoy things a little bit more."
