What American media gets wrong about Russians
Given that the Golden Globes are put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and Nevsky is Russian, we asked his thoughts on the current rift between America and Russia, which the press can't seem to get enough of. "In my point of view, we should try to prevent another Cold War," he says, noting that even before the current climate, American media didn't exactly paint Russians in the friendliest light.
"It's a very long flight between LA and Moscow, 13 hours, and I remember once, I watched three movies in a row. First one was The November Man, with Pierce Brosnan, and Pierce Brosnan was shooting Russians in that film. Second one was Taken 3, with Liam Neeson, and Liam Neeson was punching Russians in the face and also shooting them. The third one was The Equalizer, with Denzel Washington, and Denzel Washington was killing Russians. That was three movies in a row!"
