The 20-year-old actor caught up with The Dishh where he shared his thoughts on his pal Selena Gomez‘ ex and more. Check it:
On Justin: “You know, people need to leave him alone because we’re the same age. I don’t know if we’re the same age up here [points to head] but he’s a good friend of mine and when he started dating Selena, that’s like my sister. So I was kinda overseeing [who she was into] and he came into the picture and I respected him because he’s a man. People look at him like he’s a little boy, but he’s a man. He handles himself, he takes care of his family, he loves his fans. He just doesn’t make 100 percent of the best decisions 100 percent of the time. You need to take the good with the bad, but he needs to make more music, period. If he made more music, and it’s amazing I feel all the negative press would be overshadowed.”
On his Calvin Klein ads: “Here’s the thing: I respect the CK ad, and I would love to have something similar myself had I been approached to do something that edgy, but I would never, like swimsuit stuff, I would never. I don’t have a crazy body, I’m not a 300-pound Gerard Butler type.”
On his relationship status: “Right now I’m on the market, so I’m single. Single, bilingual and ready!”
According to THR, three new faces have been added to the cast! Patrick Duffy, Marlene Forte, and Tony Plana have all booked guest-starring gigs on the series.
Duffy will play Robert Quinn Sr., the “domineering and abrasive father” of Robert Quinn (Kerr Smith), while Plana and Forte are set to portray Victor and Elena, the “newly discovered relatives to the Adams Foster family.”
