Hello, friends. We’ve been so lucky this month! Pedro is featuring on GQ’s July Issue and now it was released his interview and more outtakes. Pedro discussed his role in Equalizer 2, about his parents leaving his home country Chile as political refugees when he was only an infant and more.
Pedro Pascal has noticed my sniffling. “Do you have allergies?” he asks. “You have a cold? Or do you have a cocaine problem?” It’s spring, the season when our bodies rebel against us. I tell him about the allergies I’ve had since I was a kid. He tells me to get a neti pot.
“I love drugs,” he says, pausing to make sure I know he’s talking about the over-the-counter kind, but for him, nothing’s worked better than that weird-ass contraption. “It’s kind of gross, but it really, really helps.” He offers to text me a photo so I know what to get at the drugstore.
“I’ve been to such extreme locations,” the star says from Oahu, where he’s filming a scene he describes as “survivalist.” This latest role, in a movie he can’t share the title of, is kicking his ass, and at 43, he’s feeling it. “My body is like, Dude, you were down for this ten years ago! When are you gonna play a psychiatrist?” Hawaii is good to him, though. “At the end of the day, it’s a caress being here. There aren’t any snakes, there’s no deadly spiders. It rains a lot, but it’s never cold. The locals are just too cool. It’s the kinda place where you get your ass kicked if you’re an asshole.”
