Henry Golding Doesn't Want to be 'Brad Pitt Famous' for This Reason

Henry Golding is one of GQ‘s Men of the Year for 2018 and his full interview is now available!

Here’s what he had to share with the mag…

On the level of fame he does not want: “I don’t know if I’d be comfortable being Brad Pitt famous. You can’t walk anywhere. You can’t live a life.”

On Hollywood’s perception of him before Crazy Rich Asians was released: “When I finished filming [Crazy Rich Asians], but before the movie was out, I went to a lot of these general Hollywood meetings. They’d have to look at the paper that had my face on it and a little bit of a bio. And they’re like, ‘Crazy Rich Asians. What the hell is that? Is this, like, a television show? Is it a web series?’ I’d be like, ‘No, no. It’s a movie. I think it’s gonna be pretty big.”

On dealing with his newfound fame: “I’ve stayed the same throughout. It’s just people’s perception of you changes. So I’m struggling with the fame a bit.”
