'Normal People' Star Paul Mescal Gets Candid About the 'Toxic' Side of Fame

“I just find the whole thing a little bit toxic,” he said of the paparazzi, noting that he was particularly upset by rumors that he’s dating musician Phoebe Bridgers, after the two were seen getting breakfast together. (He did not provide further details to the outlet.)

He also opened up about whether the objectification of himself and his character Connell is bothersome.

“Honest answer? Yes. It’s not something that I try to lean into. But I put it down to the audience’s associations with Connell rather than with me,” he said.

“It wasn’t something that we put any focus on during filming. I think there has been a kind of leaning on the sexualizing of it, which has been a little bit difficult to adjust to. It’s not something I lie in bed thinking about at night,” he said of wardrobe decisions for his character.

“The fandom on the show has been amazing, and seeing people have articulate discussions about character is so satisfying,” he clarified, adding that “99 percent” of fan encounters are “really positive.”

Paul Mescal is filming a movie together with this actor right now and it looks like they’re having a blast!

Normal People's Paul Mescal Reacts To Daisy Edgar-Jones' Emmy Snub

Paul Mescal is opening up about his first Emmy nomination in a brand new interview, and addressing Normal People co-star Daisy Edgar-Jones‘s snub.

The 24-year-old actor shared that upon hearing of his nomination, the first person he wanted to call was his mom, but he couldn’t get in touch with her.

“I was trying to voice call everybody on a WhatsApp group, but nobody was picking up,’ he shared. “I think they were all kind of scared. When I got everybody on the call, it was pretty amazing. My brother who never cries was crying.”

Paul did hope that Daisy would’ve been nominated alongside him, but she was snubbed in the nominations.

“It’s disappointing because I would love to have shared that with her,” Paul added.
