The 23-year-old actor opened up about his new movie, Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List, idols and more. Check it:
On No Kiss List: “It’s a cute little romcom that takes place in New York, about a girl, who loves a boy that loves a boy. It’s about that feeling of unrequited love that we all go through at some point in our lives, when we like someone and they just don’t feel the same way about us. And it puts tension on the friendship. It’s also about coming to terms with that and how we maneuver our friendships in that way, and how we love each-other. And in the end, how complicated that can get.”
On his idols: “I kind of tend to go back, like Cary Grant. He’s one of my favorites. Because there’s a guy who could be hilarious, and at the same time go into a very serious character, and pull off something that was great. So, I love him. Also, James Cagney, and all of the Rat Pack. That entire crew was amazing!”
On his surprise kiss with Ryan Ward at Outfest: “It was one of the best Q&A’s that I’ve been to or been a part of. Ryan Ward and I, who plays my love interest in the movie, surprised everyone with a kiss on stage. It was totally in the moment. Someone asked who was a better kisser, Victoria [Justice] or Ryan, and I just walked off stage and then I walked back on, he jumped out of his seat and we just did it.”
