The “Carlos” and “Point Break” actor says he loved playing a guy supporting a strong woman (Jennifer Lawrence) in the latest from David O. Russell.

The 38-year-old Venezuelan actor — of “Domino,” “Zero Dark Thirty” and the epic miniseries “Carlos” — is in two movies out on Christmas Day: the remake of “Point Break” and a key supporting role in David O. Russell’s “Joy.” We’re talking to him about “Joy,” in which he plays Tony, the ex-husband of Jennifer Lawrence’s titular single mom, who’s stayed in her life — in fact, in her basement, which he shares with her father (Robert De Niro) — post-divorce and who winds up helping her as she invents and sells the Miracle Mop.

IMG_3884

Actor Edgar Ramirez is proud to call himself a feminist, and he shared the many reasons why with HuffPost Live on Monday.

The actor, who stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence in the new film “Joy,” explained to host Alex Miranda that in a “macho normative society where so many things are still so difficult for women,” he was drawn to “Joy” for featuring a strong woman as its lead character.
