This isn’t the first time Paul has opened up about navigating life in the public eye. After all, his philosophy sharing his life with fans has shifted dramatically since bursting into Hollywood in 2020.
“When Normal People came out, I was very forthright in interviews, and it didn’t actually serve me,” he told Vanity Fair in February. “But the temptation still exists to be like, ‘Shut the f–k up. This is my life. This is what’s going on. Or this is what’s not going on.'”
So these days, he makes it a priority to keep his cards close to his chest.
“As much as I can, that’s going to be my life that is private,” the Aftersun star added. “That’s a difficult thing to achieve. But giving strangers an answer about my life doesn’t actually help me. It’s like a quick boost of serotonin, being like, ‘I’ve said what I need to say.’ And then it’s just Twitter fodder.”
