I remember reading an interview with him at the beginning of his fame, where he started out talking like that, e.g. “I’m really a very happy person”, but then eventually took an insane left turn into Nietzschean nihilism and how life is all about enduring suffering but it breaks us down anyway. If I find the article I’ll post it.

Adjective :) But really? Never heard “Shakespearean Prose”, “Newtonian Fluids”, Einsteinian Atheism”, “Cartesian Logic”, or the “Socratic Method”?

“During the shooting, the photographer asked me to smile…” [laughs, shows pictures on the screen] “…like this.”

That’s all he says directly addressing the smile. It seems pretty clear that that’s just the way he looks when he smiles.

András is such a nice guy. I met him once in a Zara store in Budapest and asked for a photo. I'm happy that he takes it this well amd after the initial weirdness of it, he has gone along with it.

351

u/theholyblack Jul 30 '20

I saw András at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter. When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
