"If you compromise what you’re trying to do just a little bit, you’ll end up compromising a little more the next day or the next week, and when you lift your head you’re suddenly really far away from where you’re trying to go."

His face visibly poses a problem for him. If it were up to him, Mads Mikkelsen would change it. The Danish actor considered hiring a surgeon and even, he said, resorting to acid. […] In this hated face, there is first, according to the actor, the cheekbones. “All too prominent ” he says. Then, huge eyes, neither round nor really quite oval, “an unlikely geometry in fact”. “I am told they [make somebody depressed, sad, unhappy]*, and that’s probably right.” And finally, a huge mouth, in harmony with his eyes. “Directors have always told me it was the jaw of a predator, a very bad guy. This is probably one of the reasons why I inherited the role of Hannibal Lecter, the cannibalistic doctor created by Thomas Harris for the television series “Hannibal.” […] When he went back to Canada for the filming of the second season of “Hannibal”, Mads Mikkelsen asked to have a mirror in his dressing room. For once, the goal was to look at his face—not to destroy it. “Lecter is a man who sees beauty in ugliness. His values ​​are reversed.” In the skin of this monster, Mads Mikkelsen can probably finally appreciate [his face].

Son visage lui pose visiblement un problème. Si cela ne tenait qu’à lui, Mads Mikkelsen en changerait. L’acteur danois a d’ailleurs songé à faire appel à un chirurgien et même, dit-il, à recourir au vitriol. […] Dans ce visage honni, il y a d’abord, selon l’acteur, ses pommettes saillantes. «Bien trop proéminentes», estime-t-il. Ensuite, ses yeux immenses, ni vraiment ronds ni tout à fait ovales, «à la géométrie improbable en fait». «On m’explique qu’ils filent le bourdon*, et c’est probablement juste.» Et, pour finir, une bouche démesurée, en harmonie avec son regard. «Les réalisateurs m’ont toujours expliqué qu’il s’agissait de la mâchoire d’un prédateur, d’un très sale type. C’est sans doute l’une des raisons pour lesquelles j’ai hérité du rôle d’Hannibal Lecter, le médecin anthropophage créé par Thomas Harris pour la série télévisée “Hannibal”.» […] Quand il a repris le chemin du Canada, pour le tournage de la deuxième saison d’«Hannibal», Mads Mikkelsen a demandé à avoir un miroir dans sa loge. Pour une fois, l’objectif était de se regarder – pas de se détruire. «Lecter est un homme qui voit la beauté dans la laideur. Ses valeurs sont inversées.» Dans la peau de ce monstre, Mads Mikkelsen peut sans doute enfin s’apprécier.

*filent le bourdon is an expression which means to make someone sad

This interview frames Mads’s career in terms of his face and how it is regarded by both him and others. The occasion of the interview is the French release of the film, The Salvation, but it discusses his other films, his relationship with Nicholas Winding Refn and Lars Von Trier. A better translation would be appreciated!
