Aaron Paul Is Finally Breaking Big

Paul is displaying me round his almost 100-year-old house in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighborhood. Main me from the lounge into the terraced yard, he gestures on the waterfall operating down the hill right into a koi pond. “Honestly, I just love peaceful serenity,” he says, “as much as I can get.” I ask if that explains his barely, properly, cult-leader selection of an outfit: olive inexperienced linen shirt, dishevelled pants, and black slippers. “Nah,” he says, “it was either this or sweats, and I didn’t wanna answer the door in sweats.”

As we head again into the lounge—fire lit, candle burning—he explains that his spouse’s been out of city, so he has the place to himself and further daddy-daughter time. We settle onto the sofa, the sort that sinks midway to the ground once you sit down on it, and as he speaks, he alternates between shifting ahead when he’s excited, and leaning again to hear. Proper now he’s in shut: “I would choose the hardest night, the sleepless nights, the vomit all over the bed… I would choose that over anything in the world, you know? It’s very hard and exhausting, but it really is true: My life began when my daughter was born.”

TECHNICALLY SPEAKING, PAUL’S LIFE started in Emmett, Idaho, on August 27, 1979, at 3:30 a.m.—a month sooner than anticipated. “Not to get too graphic,” he says, however whereas his father was out of city and his three older siblings—Rachelle, Danielle, and Stephen—slept, his mother “went to go use the restroom, and she sat on the toilet and she was like, ‘Oh, I’m having a baby.’ ” By the point the ambulance arrived, Aaron was already out. “It’s very symbolic of who I am,” he laughs. “I love being early.”
