BrainDead’s Aaron Tveit Shines On Stage And Screen (x)
Watch!: Are there times when you still get to feel anonymous? Tveit: Unless you’re Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie—that level of fame where you can’t get away from it—I feel like you can make choices in your own life that determine whether you want to deal with that stuff. If you want to be private, you can be private. Even though I’ve recently joined social media, there’s nothing about my personal life, and I’m able to keep all that stuff separate.
Watch!: Totally. […] But … the female readers of this magazine may want to know about your dating status in general. Tveit: I’m seeing someone at the moment. A very nice girl, but nothing crazy serious. I’m dating … I guess that’s what the kids say these days!
Watch!: Do you have any rules about, say, never dating a co-star? Tveit: I think you gotta stay open, otherwise it might cool you to something. The rule I try to follow is: It takes long enough for you to figure out who you are as a person, and don’t change that for someone else. As much as you may think somebody’s great, you can’t go back on who you are. You know? I’m just trying to be honest. It’s something I wasn’t that good at when I was younger, but the last few years I’ve given it a shot and it works really well. Fancy that!
You go through life thinking that you’re your own person.
But at some point, you realize that without the people who mean the
most to you, you are just an empty shell. The ones we love and hate
make us who we are.
