Celebs who have heaps of praise & followers on social media:
“In my best moments, I feel compassion for that—I think that’s really dangerous and I wouldn’t know how to handle it,” he says. “In my worst moments, deep jealousy.”
His brother on his reputation for playing troubled teens:
“My brother gives me a lot of shit for it, actually,” Hedges says of his roles. “He’s like, ‘Most people in the world aren’t going through what your characters are going through.’ ”
