Mark Manson Movie – The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F Interview

Do you wish you could magically care less about the things that bother you?

Why is it so hard to make real friends as we get older?

And what keeps us from making a big change in life?

Mark Manson has sold over 15 million copies of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F—. Now it’s been made into a movie. Today, Mark and I sit down to discuss what makes him feel insecure, dealing with negative feedback, and what Will Smith taught him about fame.

We only had a few minutes to talk so we kicked things off catching up about one of our favorite philosophers, Ken Wilber and of course — we had to address the controversial comeback of the metal band Pantera.

In this interview:

  • The Pantera comeback
  • The challenge of turning a self-help book into a film
  • What makes Mark Manson feel insecure?
  • Dealing with negative feedback/criticism
  • How do we know if we’re still mindf*cking ourselves?


  • What did Will Smith teach Mark about fame?
  • How success and isolation often go hand in hand
  • Developing brotherhood and trusting relationships with other men
  • The big reason we resist making a big change
  • Is “Jimmy” (a person in the film) a psychopath?
