David Harbour keeps a framed photo of Hellboy in his closet to 'remember where I came from' whenever he's 'feeling particularly good' about himself
David Harbour showed off a framed photo of himself as Hellboy in his closet.
He said he keeps it in there to "remember where I came from" when he's "feeling particularly good."
Harbour starred in the 2019 "Hellboy" reboot, which underperformed at the box office.
David Harbour keeps a framed photo of himself in costume as the iconic character Hellboy in his closet, just to humble himself if he starts to feel too good.
Or at least, he had the photo staged in his pure black walk-in closet for an Architectural "Open Door" series tour of his Brooklyn townhouse, which he shares with his wife Lily Allen.
"Just whenever I'm feeling particularly good about myself," Harbour said directly to the camera, slowly pulling out a framed photo from behind several hats laid out on a shelf, "I like to always remember where I came from."
The photo shows Harbour as Hellboy, from Neil Marshall's 2019 reboot of the beloved franchise, based on the Dark Horse comics character.
The original "Hellboy" and its sequel, both directed by Guillermo del Toro, were released in 2004 and 2008, respectively, and starred Ron Perlman as the titular character.
To say the least, Harbour's "Hellboy" didn't go over particularly well. The film, as Insider reported in 2019, was an "epic flop" when it came to box-office numbers, pulling in just $12 million over its debut weekend and $21 million in the United States.
Harbour has been fairly candid about the movie's performance in the past. The actor told Yahoo! Entertainment in 2022 that the experience taught him "not to fuck with established IP, that's for sure."
In a 2022 GQ interview, he also said that he called fellow actor Ryan Reynolds for advice on how to "survive" a "flop" on this level, comparing it to Reynolds' 2011 film "Green Lantern."
To his credit, Harbour's career seems to have emerged from "Hellboy" intact. He continues to star in the blockbuster Netflix title "Stranger Things" and has appeared in other projects like the bloody Christmas flick "Violent Night."
