Matty McKibben has got Justin Bieber’s back! ‘Awkward’ star Beau Mirchoff spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife.com, and he openly discussed why he totally feels for Justin and even understands his ban on fan photos these days. Click inside to LISTEN!
Beau Mirchoff, 27, was a total blast to have on the HollywoodLife.com podcast, especially when he spoke about saying goodbye to Awkward — for now — and his new play, The Understudy, which opens in Los Angeles, California in June. However, he also chimed in on 22-year-old Justin Bieber and the no fan picture ban he’s put in place via social media. Just wait until you hear Beau’s thoughts on the rule!
“I kind of understand that,” Beau told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY when the topic of Justin’s new anti-photo rule for his fans came up. “He must not be able to have a conversation. He just gets bombarded incessantly and can’t go through life. I get that.”
Beau seemed sympathetic to Justin’s rule, which is likely due to his being the lead hottie on Awkward for six whole seasons. Beau is best known as Matty McKibben to fan girls everywhere, and he likely gets stopped a lot as well when he’s out and about!
“You’re justifying it as relative to you. It’s relative to him. To his experience, it’s tangible to him. It’s easy for us to go, he has this and that, we’re prejudiced. That’s not necessarily true,” Beau continued, slightly referencing those who have thrown a little shade at Justin for putting up a wall between himself and his fans. However, Beau seems to really feel for the Biebs.
But, how does Beau feel about taking pictures with fans?
“I wouldn’t say enjoy, I don’t mind it. I think it’s nice,” Beau explained. “No, I do enjoy it. At times.”
That being said, once Beau realized that he had lots of Awkward fans in the HollywoodLife.com office, he was more than happy to pose for pictures with everyone who asked. He was a total gentleman!
However, we couldn’t help but dig into Beau’s brain about the Awkward finale, whic has yet to be confirmed as a series or a season finale. The bad news? The wait is killing us! The good news? There’s still a chance for more Awkward!
We asked Beau how he felt about young love, especially the high school sweetheart kind that his character, Matty, shares with Jenna on the show. We have to admit, his answer was pretty surprising.
“I don’t know if I believe in true love. I don’t know. How do you know? I think you can find the right person, however, you change so much,” Beau explained. “For people to grow together after high school, through college or wherever you go, that’s a difficult and rare thing. Yes, it can happen. It’s not likely.”
As much of a bummer as it is to hear, we totally applaud Beau’s honesty. It also just goes to show how incredible of an actor he is, because Matty was obviously smitten to the end for Jenna no matter what Beau thought about it!
Make sure you listen to the FULL HollywoodLife.com podcast interview with Beau, and if you happen to be in the LA area in June be sure to check him out on stage in The Understudy. Oh, and fingers crossed for more Awkward, duh!
