Andrew told Bustle, “I’m not in the public eye to a great degree because I’ve designed it that way for myself. For my work, I’m fine with it, but otherwise I fight for my right for a private, personal life. My right to be ordinary. My right to be a mess. My right to be sorrowful. My right to lose, to get it wrong, to be stupid, to be a person.”

To explain why he doesn’t have any public social media accounts, Andrew said, “For me, art is where I feel I can be political, and that’s where I find more potency and power.”

Andrew also discussed his belief in monogamy.

“If you’re in a committed monogamous relationship, there’s something very beautiful about the sacrifice of other possibilities,” he said. “You make that connection sacred and it intensifies the joy of it and the specialness of it.”
