tbqh i agree with you, peyton is a pretty good actor and honestly people hate on him and lucas for the stupidest reasons. they're teenage boys? let the live and make mistakes.
thank you, thank you! like you can actually tell he tries in his acting. when peyton was doing the speech to rowan in ski lodge too you could feel the emotion and that’s amazing. i loved it. truly spectacular.
but besides that, neither lucas or peyton really do anything to get as much hate as they do???
okay so peyton
- retweeted an alm tweet which he then deleted and apologized for after being called out
- hasn’t posted anything about politics, blm, or any of the shootings or disasters happening in the world but he’s also hardly ever on social media
- according to the fandom “doesn’t do anything” but is constantly doing premiere program, is going to things like “anti bully” campaigns and a bunch of other shit that other favs of the cast don’t do (never do actually, from what i know)
- never speaks out about things really, but than again as soon as rumors about peyton hating his cast mates and being homophobic he straightened it out. bc he cares about his cast mates and he’s not a hateful person. (i mean, why do an anti bully campaign if you’re gonna bully someone who likes the same sex)
and lucas what? oh yeah! doesn’t get story lines. gets pushed back for a character who became a main half way through s1 (and even than was pushed aside), has only been used as a prop from romances, and when he does anything it’s taken way out of proportion but when other characters do worse it’s ignore. because why? because he’s a white male who “text book” definition of attractive.
