He’s certainly one dapper dude and Scott Foley nabbed the attention of Redbook, scoring a feature in the mag’s December/January issue.
While chatting with the mag, the “Scandal” star chatted about being a dad (he and his wife just welcomed their third child) and if he thinks the White House resembles anything close to his hit ABC series.
Check out highlights from Foley’s interview below and for more head over to Redbook!
On whether he thinks Scandal-esque stuff really goes on at the White House:
“Oh God, I hope so. Obviously, we’re adding an inordinate amount of drama to somewhat realistic situations, but I think there are secret meetings and possibly organizations that no one knows about doing things that can’t be done in the public eye.”
On feeling like an old pro when it comes to being a dad:
“We all learn and make it up as we go along. I’ve gotten more patient and less selfish. The other day, my daughter woke up at 5:30AM on a weekend and was like, ‘Dad, I want some milk.’ So I got out of bed, warmed some milk in the microwave, and thought ‘I’m a good father – even though I’ve got my kid in front of the TV.’ It’s a job that never stops. I haven’t slept in years.”
On how he’s gotten better looking with age:
“I have no idea, but thank you! When Shonda Rhimes tells you to take your shirt off and 12 million people are going to see it Thursday night, you’re going to lose a little weight, so that’ll do it. I’ve always thought that 45 to 55 is a great time for guys: Your body has filled out. Your face doesn’t look old, but you’re weathered enough to look like you know what you’re talking about.”
On always being cast as ‘the other guy’:
“I think in reality you never want to be the other guy; but as an actor, a love triangle is instant drama, and it’s fantastic.”
