KJ Apa Explains Why He Doesn't Want to Take a Vacation

KJ Apa hangs with the stars on the cover of GQ Style, on stands September 27th.

The 21-year-old Riverdale actor opened up about fame, taking time off and his regular life. Check it:

On the downsides of fame: “Having to look behind your shoulder every couple of seconds if you’re walking home, to make sure no one’s following you. Having paparazzi know where you live, you have to be careful every time you walk outside your front door.”

On why he doesn’t mind not having time off: “I would say in the last year, I’ve had maybe a couple of weeks off. Two weeks. Total. But when I signed with [talent agency] UTA, I told my agents that I don’t want to have a day off in the next five to seven years. I just want to keep it going. It’s important to use the attention around the show and the success of the show, to just milk it. And people are gonna struggle to dissect you from your character, so I feel like I need to prove myself, outside of the show.”

On returning to his normal life: “I’m not scared of being forgotten. I could quite happily walk out of here and go back to New Zealand. I’d be with my boys, I’d be with my family, and it’d be great.
