Britney Spears’ boyfriend Sam Asghari opened up about her dedication to comedy in a new interview with Variety.
While the 27-year-old artist admitted his “ultimate goal” was to work across genres, Sam said his eyes were on making action movies right now.
Asghari said, “Action is something I want to do – action, drama, thriller – it’s a genre that I really want to get into. But if you can do comedy, you can do it all.

But he made it clear that he can be as versatile as possible.
“My ultimate goal is to really become a well-rounded actor,” he continued.
“I want to do action, but I also want to be able to do theater. It’s my job and I want to do it 100%, ”he said.
Asghari has big aspirations, telling Variety he wants “to be the first Middle East to play a superhero.”
“Marvel or whoever – they should call me,” he joked.
Work hard: Above all, Asghari wants to be a “complete” actor. He is seen with Spears at the 2019 premiere of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Sam said he was inspired by watching the masters of the trade on screen.
The influencer said, “When I do cardio for 45 minutes or up to an hour when I’m on the treadmill, I’m studying to watch. “
“I consider it to be my job. I no longer watch a story from the film: I watch performances, ”he added.
Britney’s beau recalled his first urge to start acting, telling Variety he was inspired after losing over a hundred pounds after graduating from college.
Method Developed: Asghari told the outlet that he now watches movies when he trains to study various performances.
“I did theater and the arts, but as a hobby it was never like a profession.
“But once I started to see some physical change… I really started to get into acting,” he remarked.
He eventually landed a role in the Showtime Black Monday series.
Things unfolded quickly, as Asghari recalled: “It was such a quick audition – a few lines. And then a few weeks later, they booked me. I was in Italy for a project and heard that they needed me to come back.
Change: The bodybuilder also said he got seriously interested in acting after graduating from college and losing a substantial amount of weight.
Sam said he couldn’t wait to prove he was more than Spears’ boyfriend.
“I’d rather they didn’t know who I am, so they could actually see the character,” he said.
“So they don’t see Sam Asghari… that way they can actually judge my acting abilities rather than my fame or social media presence,” the bodybuilder noted.

“I don’t see myself as an influencer. I consider myself an actor: my finances come from acting and my fitness program.
“And, yeah, I do business here and there, but I try not to do business that is cheesy or influencer type,” Asghari said.
The media personality has starred in smaller roles in various movies and TV projects over the past few years.
Earlier this year, he portrayed Sexy Santa during an episode of the HBO dark comedy series Max Hacks.
