Dove Cameron Says Her Fans Are Like 'Really Attentive Friends'

Dove Cameron is opening up about her super loyal fan base!

In a new interview with boyfriend Thomas Doherty for Wonderland Magazine, the 24-year-old actress and singer dished on how her fans are more like friends.

“I know that part of that following is a fan base that is incredibly kind to me, very lovely, very warm. I feel genuinely engaged with that fan base,” Dove said. “Sometimes I’m really surprised by their insight and surprised by the things they pick up on in me. They feel almost like really attentive friends. It blows my mind the care that some of my fan bases puts into just knowing about me and knowing the things to say to make me smile.”

“It’s a really strange relationship because [they’re] people that you’ll probably never meet, and if you meet them you probably never get to know them, but they know you and they can actually know you a lot better than you think,” she continued. “Sometimes they say really observant things about my mental health or my relationship with my family or my relationship with fame, things I’ve never quite fully expressed. There’s really a lot of care that goes into something like that, a lot of sensitivity and effort and kindness and it makes me happy that there are people out there that have that kind of empathy for someone that they don’t even know.”

“And then I think there’s a large majority of people who follow me just because they think they should be following me, just because I’m somebody of note. I don’t really know how to say it,” Dove added. “It’s like you, sometimes do you ever just follow someone on Instagram because everyone else is following them? It doesn’t in any way feel like a mark on who I am… It just feels like part of a Hollywood thing. I’m active on it, like I’m not pretending I’m not active on it, I just never attempted to cultivate the following that I have. It’s something I feel like I stumbled into. My relationship with my fans I feel is separate, but the following itself I don’t feel should be as large or as engaged as it is.”
