Glamour: So, were you as awkward around girls in high school as your character in the movie, Dave, was?
Dylan O’Brien: Absolutely! I wasn’t so smooth. I was very shy with girls and was always, you know, ruddy cheeked around them. I was always loving them but never had any idea how to tell them that, so I’m very similar to Dave in that sense.
Glamour: So, has that changed at all?
Dylan O’Brien: Not so much, in all honesty. Obviously times change and as you get older, you learn from every experience. But I’m always a little innately shy when I first talk to a girl, and I think I always will be! But I think that’s a good thing. You don’t want to lose that.
Glamour: Well said! Now tell us, what’s your current obsession?
Dylan O’Brien: One Direction!
Glamour: Who’s your favorite?
Dylan O’Brien: Oh, come on, is that even a question? Harry Styles, of course! He’s the next Mick Jagger.
