Nat Wolff has a chat with director Paul Weitz in this still from his upcoming film, Admission.
On Selena: “She’s not like that [fame-hungry] and she was famous on a level that I never was. She’s famous on a superstar level that I don’t know will ever go away, and she’s made a transition to doing more films that are R-rated. Spring Breakers and this movie I’ve done with her, and she’s done it seamlessly. She’s a good person and I think just a really good actress and I think that separates who makes it.”
On college: “People said [this career] would help me get into college, but I think it’s crazy to get in no matter what you’re doing outside of school, and I was gone so much, I don’t have the best grades — well, I actually have okay grades. It’s just become such a business, getting into college. I see that a lot in my friends, their parents were so on top of them about getting into an Ivy League school since they were so young, they were just drilled and drilled and drilled, to the point that they just don’t know why they want to go. They’re just going because that’s the trajectory that someone’s picked for them.”
On leaving Naked Brothers Band behind: “I was super bummed when I found out [that the show wasn't coming back], but in retrospect I’m really glad that happened, because I was on the edge of getting burned out,” he admits, finally old enough to take a step back and better understand the madness around him. “The first two seasons, we were all really, it was my best friends in the world, and we were just hanging out. And by the third season, I was really taking it seriously.”
On his future in films: “There’s no master plan, I’m just going with what I’m inspired to do and what I get asked to do, and luckily the things I’ve been the most passionate about, I’ve gotten to do. And a lot of times I’ve gone up for movies that I didn’t really care that much about, and I never got that.”
