Rising star Dane DeHaan on his upcoming movie 'Lawless' and how he stays grounded as a celebrity

In his new movie "Lawless," Dane DeHaan plays one of the infamous Bondurant Brothers who made a run for the American dream during the prohibition era in Virginia.  DeHaan says the movie which features three bootlegging siblings, guns, crime and violence is ultimately about family. "The movie is a bloodbath. But its a bloodbath because its ultimately about three brothers and their heritage and providing for their family with their heritage," DeHaan says. 

DeHaan, a rising star who is best known for his portrayal of Jesse on HBO's series "In Treatment" talks about not being overtaken by the celebrity. DeHaan says, "I've never really done this to be a celebrity. I've done it because I really love acting and because I really love the work."

The movie also stars Shia Labeouf, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, and Mia Wasikowska. "Lawless" Opens in theatres August 29.
