Adding that he has no real reason to use social media unlike many other celebrities. However he does have a Twitter account but this is simply to follow news and people who the actor finds funny.

Although he doesn’t use social media, he did state in the interview that when preparing for the role he was inspired by creators on YouTube.

But the actor expressed that the “hustle culture” of content creation in his opinion is “not conducive to good mental health I would argue.”

Adding to this statement he mentioned about the pressure creators have to keep creating new content and due to the pressure the creators will become ‘less authentic’ as they may have to create content that can be more ‘mass produced’.
