Here’s what the 28-year-old 90210 star had to share with the mag:
On his Twilight spoof, Vampires Suck: “[The vampire genre] was so ripe for the picking, and it needed to be poked at a little bit. It’s all about coming up with the most ridiculous thing you can and then doing it. You have to be willing to make yourself look stupid, that’s for sure.”
On acting: “First and foremost it’s just fun. It’s fun escaping to a different reality and becoming a different character and exploring somebody else. I feel as the years go on and I gain more experience and do more things, I’m able to take myself to deeper places.”
On finding roles: “I get these auditions all the time for the jock, the bully who goes and picks on people. That wasn’t me when I was young; I wasn’t like that. I guess, classically, the stereotype is the jock guys who play sports and stuff are people who pick on nerds. It’s all aggressive and angry, and it’s just not my style. I’m so much more chill than that.”
