Lucas Hedges Reveals What He Tells Fans When They Recognize Him

Lucas Hedges is on the cover of GQ magazine’s March 2019 issue.

Here’s what the 22-year-old Boy Erased star had to share with the mag…

On when fans kinda recognize who he is: “I actually get a lot of ‘You look like this guy, I forget his name. Lucas something? Sometimes they’re like, ‘Is it you?’ And, depending on how I feel, I often say no.”

On what he wants for his next project: “Right now I’m not looking to do a project that carries the weight of life itself on its shoulders, or even anything super socially relevant. I want to do something that feels very personally significant.”

On gaining success at a young age: “…there’s actually just no way I can be truly great at this until I’ve put in 20 more years. I think a lot of the actors who get success at a really young age, they’re just not as good. How could they be?”

Lucas Hedges Opens Up About Being Compared to Other Leading Men

Lucas Hedges is on the cover of WSJ. Magazine‘s February 2019 Talents & Legends Issue, out now.

Here’s what the 22-year-old actor had to say…

On playing ordinary young
 men navigating strained and tumultuous 
periods of their lives:
 “My brother gives me a lot of s–t for it, actually. He’s like, ‘Most people in the world aren’t going through what your characters are going through.’”

On his childhood: “There was definitely a dream of being with somebody that never came true at that point in my life…it just didn’t feel like an option to actually be transparent with what I was going through. I really was trying to find myself through all these different relationships.”

On being compared to other leading men: “I do think about why there isn’t, like, a River Phoenix or somebody who I experience as being magical and ethereal and culturally historical…I do actually experience that with Timothée [Chalamet].”

On why he doesn’t aspire to heartthrob-dom: “I think I have a realistic sense of myself. The kind of actors I look up to are not the Rob Lowes. That’s not to say I haven’t wanted to be those guys. I know some women who are in love with Paul Dano. Colin Firth, perhaps?”
