Thomas Mann Discusses New Rom-Com About Fate, His Career, And More


“About Fate” tells us that if we lean into fate, we can change in both beautiful, unexpected ways. Do you think you’ve experienced fate in your life thus far?

I think so. I would like to believe that I have. Even working in this industry, I’ve seen certain instances of fate for myself and  how things come back around. It’s too beautiful to be a coincidence that was like, “Oh no, this is how this was supposed to go.” I don’t know if you have something like that in your life where it’s like, “This is too cool. This is too good to be true.”

You oftentimes play these quirky, endearing characters sometimes but you can also really tug on our heartstrings in dramas. Do you feel like you’ve made your younger self proud? Is this where you maybe envision him/yourself to go where you’re at now?

Yeah, I would like to think so. I’ve always been ambitious and I’ve always been like, “Okay, now what’s next? I want more.” If you told me when I was 17, when I moved out here, that I would be starring in movies when I’m 30, I would be like, “Okay, good. I’m doing the right thing. I didn’t waste my time or whatever.” I would like to think he’d be proud, or he’d be like, “Why don’t you have a f***ing Oscar? What are you doing?”
