Speaking Truth to Power with @markruffalo at the Oscars
It’s the third time actor Mark Ruffalo (@markruffalo) is attending the #Oscars as a nominee, but he still describes his pre-award show routine as “a little nervy and expectant.” At 48, the star is up for his supporting role as journalist Michael Rezendes in Spotlight, a drama with six major nods including Best Picture. The film is a true story, based on the experience of Boston Globe reporters who worked to break news of a scandal within their local Catholic church. “We have to hold our institutions accountable. One very good and efficient way of doing that is through the power of journalism. We must speak truth to power to protect the most innocent and cherished members of our society,” Mark says about the plot. As a hectic awards season wraps up, the dad of three is also looking forward to sharing lighter moments with his family. “I am going to hang out with my kids, spend time with my friends, have dates with my wife, perhaps go on a little vacation, read, see plays and maybe learn how to do something I don’t already know how to do,” he says. “In short, I’m going to live a little.”
