RJ Cyler Is Really Excited For Everyone To See 'Sierra Burgess is a Loser'

RJ Cyler is ready for the world to see Sierra Burgess is a Loser already.

The 23-year-old actor plays Dan, Sierra’s only friend, in the new Netflix film.

Speaking with TV Insider, RJ opened up about the draw for him to be part of the flick and what he hopes fans will take away from it.

Sierra Burgess is one of the movies I’m mostly excited about,” he says. “Just a story about teenagers. The roughness of how to grow up a teenager, especially nowadays.

RJ adds, “I feel like people crave for this high school feel movie or the love at a young age movie because we’ve all been there. Also, life that changes so much because the world changes so much. My high school experience is different from yours, or my mom’s or dad’s.”

“So, to be able to play that honestly with the times is very important. Sierra Burgess definitely does that.”

He continued to open up about the important issues the film will tackle, like self-worth.

“Self-worth is one of the main components of this movie,” RJ shared. “I feel like, especially with my generation, we need a grip because we have a lot of followers. Not just Instagram, Twitter, etc. People don’t think for themselves anymore, especially my generation. My generation would look at something and see that’s what someone is doing and think they should do it. That’s really the worst way to live life.”

Sierra Burgess is a Loser premieres TOMORROW, Friday, September 7th on Netflix.
