an hon­est con­ver­sa­tion with the hot­tie who plays Kevin on This is us.

Keepin’ it ca­sual

“When I was in my 20s, my mom told me, ‘Put ev­ery­thing you have into a re­la­tion­ship— but re­mem­ber, it’s prob­a­bly not your last.’ In other words, have fun and let things go. It’s okay to be a lit­tle self­ish—you have to find the line be­tween be­ing rea­son­ably self­ish and be­ing a com­plete dick.”

the truth Hurts

“The last thing you should do is tell some­one what you think they want to hear just be­cause you don’t want to hurt their feel­ings. It’s just a mat­ter of time be­fore they find out and you hurt them even more. It’s hard to be up-front, but it’s def­i­nitely the best thing to do.”

When to com­mit

“You have to take your time, and you have to see how some­one re­acts when things aren’t go­ing great—when they get fired or a friend be­trays them or they’re mad at you. If they’re un­pre­dictable and you don’t know what you’re go­ing to get from day to day, it’s the worst.”

rais­ing the bar

“I used to work as a bar­tender, and I loved it. It’s so in­ter­est­ing to see peo­ple’s game. I’ve heard ev­ery pickup line pos­si­ble—and I’ve seen some aw­ful ones work. Se­ri­ously, I’ve seen ‘Do you come here of­ten?’ work more than a dozen times. But you also learn things. Like, dudes, just be­cause a woman is out with her friends at a bar does not mean that she wants you to talk to her!”
