Aaron Paul is in a 'happy place'


Aaron Paul is in "a very happy place".

The 40-year-old actor has heaped praise on his wife Lauren Parsekian, as well as their two-year-old daughter Story, as he says being "madly in love" and having a "beautiful baby girl" have helped to make his life the best it has ever been.

He said: "It's just about doing stuff that I continue to love. I mean, I'm madly in love. I have a beautiful baby girl."

Aaron also gushed over sci-fi series 'Westworld', which he began starring in during season three - which premiered earlier this month - as well as his friendship with Bryan Cranston, with whom he founded a mezcal company, Dos Hombres Mezcal, last year.

Of his achievements, he added: "I have a job on a series I love ['Westworld'] and it's a beautiful thing. I started a mezcal company with one of my best friends [Cranston]. I'm in a very happy place."

And although Aaron is thrilled to have landed a role in 'Westworld', his own life couldn't be further from the technology packed drama.

The 'Breaking Bad' star hasn't owned a computer in over a decade, and says his phone is restricted to only making calls and texts, with no function for emails or apps.

He explained: "I mean, honestly, I'd already been thinking a lot about those things," he says of the series themes. "It's impossible not to. You know, there's a lot of benefits in technology - but there's a lot of serious dangers. That we tackle all of this is one of the reasons why I've been a huge fan of 'Westworld' since it started airing. I just love sci-fi - I think that's my favourite genre."

Aaron was also asked about returning for season four of 'Westworld', but the star played coy.

He told NME: "We'll see what happens. I don't know - it depends on if my character survives this season or not."
