That being said, the second you start idolizing someone in the industry, you create a dichotomy between you and them. You create a hierarchy. This is the thing I like the least about the industry. When saying ‘celebrity’ and 'normal,’ you’re implying that maybe 'celebrity’ is something greater or less than 'normal.’ That’s not the case. That’s sort of been my whole message. The second you start going crazy about someone you admire, you put them in a space that makes them almost unattainable — you put them in a space that is distancing and objectifying. The second you’re looking up to someone, you’re still looking up. They’re looking down. That’s a really strange way of interacting with a person. I love when people come up to me and ask a strange question or get a little invasive. That’s my favorite thing! It means there’s no wall putting them in fear of talking to me. That’s something Dylan and I wanted to make very apparent as we went to school, did the dorm system, and sat in class with everyone. People idolize celebrities in a way that is unhealthy for them. It’s something that’s sold to them by the same companies that air the TV shows. I don’t want people to think of me as something more than themselves. I want people to think of me as just a person.
“my personal style is kind of a combination of all styles i would say; just because i’m undecided. maybe it’s because i’m an actor but every day i wake up and i want to be something different. it’s just a combination of everything.”
