Save The Date! The Bachelor’s Catherine Giudici is Finally Getting Married

This gorgeous 27-year-old Filipina first graced television screens on the 2013 season of The Bachelor.

The American reality television dating game show, which premiered back in 2002, received backlash over the years for its predominantly white cast. To this day, the show remains primarily white, but it has shown effort to add some diversity.

In season 17, Bachelor Sean Lowe found himself facing one of the most ethnically diverse group of girls that the show has seen yet. Among the women who stood out to us, and to Sean apparently, was Catherine Giudici.

The graphic designer eventually won Lowe’s heart, but not before bringing him home and teaching him a thing or two about the Filipino culture. As it turns out, Giudici’s mother is a trustee of the Filipino American National Historical Society so Giudici is no stranger to her roots. In fact, her full name (Catherine Ligaya Mejia Giudici) contains the word “happiness” in Tagalog. Catherine Giudici has even been found tweeting about her Filipino culture.

After waiting patiently for nearly a year, we finally get to see the adorable couple tie the knot! The wedding will be held January 26 at  the Four Seasons Resort—The Biltmore Santa Barbara. Lucky for us, every detail of the wedding will be telecast live on ABC.

Their wedding planner Mindy Weiss says, “”Sean and Catherine have a very grown-up style right now. They want something sexy and romantic. They use certain words to kind of guide me with their vision.”

And if you thought the couple couldn’t get any cuter, let’s not forget that they have an absolutely adorable Save The Date.

Top 5 Reasons We Love Variety’s 2014 Breakthrough Actress OLIVIA MUNN

Variety‘s Breakthrough of the Year Awards celebrates and recognizes rising stars in entertainment and technology. This year, the awards ceremony took place at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas.

Much of our attention was focused on Variety’s 2014 Breakthrough Actress Winner, Olivia Munn. The 33-year-old half-Chinese actress has been on our radar for quite some time. Thankfully, the world is taking notice.

Munn is most known for her roles in films such as Iron Man 2 and Magic Mike as well as her roles on television shows such as The Daily Show and New Girl.

Although she is considered a “rising star,” she has captivated the hearts of her fans for years. Don’t know her yet? Now’s the time. Here are our Top 5 Reasons We Love Olivia Munn.

 


om 2
1. She never gave up on her dreams.
In a 2011 interview with Audrey Magazine, Munn admits that when she first told her mother she wanted to be an actress, her mother adamantly disagreed and insisted that she become a lawyer.

In fact, her mother wasn’t the only one who doubted Munn’s choice of acting. Initially, Munn found her dreams difficult to follow. Her unique look and Asian eyes originally caused her to feel doubtful.

But Munn didn’t give up on her dreams. In fact, it all made her work harder to prove to everyone (including herself) that she was capable. “I told myself, my bar will always be higher than what I was doing at the time. Then if I reached that one, I would make another higher one, and another one,” she says. “I’ve worked hard for a long time [so I could] tell myself, I’ll never be the reason I hear no.”


om 3
2. She overcame social pressures.
Munn spent much of her childhood moving around. She was born in Oklahoma, but spent a large portion of her childhood in Tokyo, Japan. Needless to say, she found it difficult to fit in.

According to Refinery29, Munn tried to change her appearance to be accepted by her peers. “I wore men’s clothing a lot in high school because I wanted to hide behind baggy pants and T-shirts. When I moved from Japan to Oklahoma at 16 I tried to go more preppy to fit in. I ditched my skater clothes but I just ended up looking like some weird girl desperately trying to fit in. The kids in school would be wearing sweater vests from Gap, but we couldn’t afford brand new clothes so I would borrow my grandmother’s linty, moth-eaten sweater vests and not realise how much of a sore thumb I looked like.”

But as expected, she overcame this need to fit in. “When you’re always the new girl, it forces you to come up with new ways to make friends,” Munn tells Audrey Magazine, “because every time you go somewhere, it’s literally the same battle. Eventually with me, once I built up so much scar tissue, I didn’t have to worry so much about becoming popular or being welcomed or being accepted.”


om 4
3. Her strong relationship with her fans.
Over the years, Munn has gathered quite a handful of loyal fans and has proven that she doesn’t allow fame to get to her head. Her fan club is called OMFGs (Olivia Munn Fan Group) and Munn has been known to be extremely generous and kind to her dedicated fans.  In an interview with US Magazine, Munn has stated that she owes everything she has to her loyal fan group, OMFG.

“They’re amazing. I’m very lucky. It’s a really good feeling to know they have my back,” says Munn. ““They put me on this ride. They’re coming along for the ride.”

 


om 6
4. She’s a published author.
Although Munn pursued her dream of becoming an actress despite her mother’s initial sentiments about the career, the last thing Munn wanted to do was go against her mother’s will. Munn admits that no matter what, she needed her mother’s approval before making big decisions like moving to Hollywood.

To satisfy her mother, she graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a journalism degree and work for a year at a local television station before moving west.

Although Munn is now a successful actress, she still put her degree to good use and became a published author. Suck It, Wonder Woman: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek, was released on July 6, 2010.

5. She’s an Audrey Magazine covergirl.

Korean Twin Sisters Unrecognizable After Plastic Surgery

It’s no secret. In Asia, plastic surgery is becoming more and more common. In fact, double eyelid surgery is so typical that many girls have been known to receive the procedure as a graduation gift.

Aside from these minor procedures, just how far has surgery entered Asian culture? According to some, surgery has become a very serious ordeal. Photographer Ji Yeo tried to call attention to the amount of plastic surgery occurring in South Korea, by showing the physical cost women endure in “Korea’s beauty-obsessed culture.”

Additionally, more women seem to be willing to go to extreme measures to live up to the high expectation of Asian beauty. As a result, some have faced the horrifying repercussions of a surgery gone wrong.

Regardless of all this, many remain undaunted by the possible negative side effects. Plastic surgery remains more popular than ever. There’s Miss Korea who completed in the Miss Universe Pageant 2013. Kim Yumi had absolutely no problem admitting her multiple procedures. Then there’s the woman who was so obsessed with Miranda Kerr‘s looks that she decided to go under the knife in an effort to look like the Australian Victoria’s Secret model.

Now, apparently, there’s a Korean television show called “Let’s Beauty.” Asiantown.net claims that the purpose of this show is to “help those with special circumstances or people who are too ugly to feel confident in their life.” The participant facing “special circumstances” will have their plastic surgery sponsored by the television program and audiences follow along during the transformation.

A pair of twin sisters caught much attention after participating in the show. After their surgery, both twins look completely unrecognizable from their original self. Check it out for yourself:

So tell us. Is this television show going too far or is it simply an entertaining topic? Watch an episode for below.

Steven Yeun Reveals Glenn’s Secret To Survival

The Walking Dead hype is picking up once again with this new season. Admittedly, we’ve been quite hooked. We’re not ashamed to confess that one of the reasons for our TWD addiction is Glenn played by Steven Yeun.

Thankfully, our favorite character has managed to avoid his share of walkers throughout the show. Yeun opened up to AMC and revealed Glenn’s secret to survival along with other stories concerning The Walking Dead.

Check out the interview below:

 

Q: What do you do to get yourself in shape for the show every season?
A: Norman and Andy and I have a lot of discussions about this. We do have to be strong enough to pull off what we’re asked as actors to do. But then also, we want to make it realistic, in that we don’t want these guys to be jacked or anything like that. I just try to stay relatively healthy. But when it comes to gearing up for the new season, we even had discussions about taking a one week camping trip to get disheveled and disgusting. It’s interesting, because once we start shooting we actually start getting skinnier and more malnutritioned and gaunt as we go. The first and second season, Jon Bernthal got me into boxing, and that’s been good to just get strong without making you look like you’re ‘roiding out.

Q: Do you box with any other cast members?
A: Just Jon actually. He could kill me with one hit.

Q: Do any other aspects of The Walking Dead become a part of your life?
A: This show is really intense in that we’re living out these characters’ lives. So you just kind of live out really terrible situations that hit really close to home, so last year with what Glenn was going through, it was hard to not fall into his pit of despair and depression and keep my composure. I think that’s your job to kind of separate the two, so you don’t go insane.

Q: Glenn and Maggie have the best room at the prison. What’s the coolest place you’ve ever slept?
A: There are nice hotels, but nothing beats 1993, on the middle of a small mat on my grandma’s farm in one of the hottest summers in Korea. You can like smell the grain that they’re growing — they actually own a Tobacco farm. And you’re just laying there on the ground while my grandmother’s cooking.

Q: Are zombies a part of Korean culture at all?
A: I think the idea of it exists, but don’t know if it is in their pantheon of monsters. Korea has a way of being more about goblins and ghosts, and less about vampires, werewolves, and zombies.

Q: What did you know about Glenn’s arc and what surprised you about it this year?
A: I knew that going in that Glenn was going to be a little more careful. All the things that he’s suffered for and learned for his mistakes for. He wants to really keep and cherish the idea of family, and keeping those around him that he loves. Scott [Gimple] told me that was the direction Glenn was headed. But there were some surprises in terms of how feeble he was in his attempts to do so, early on.

Q: We’ve talked before about your background in comedy. Is there any space for humor for Glenn in the apocalypse?
A: I think earlier on in the first season, and the second season a bit, Glenn had that. But I think that as things wear on him, and as Glenn started having more things to care about and protect, he became a little darker. But I think that part of him still exists and hope it will come out sooner or later.

Q: What’s Glenn’s secret to survival?
A: Resilience. He’s hard to knock down, and if he does get knocked down, he’s hard to keep down.

Q: You’re an internet guy. Have you checked out any The Walking Dead tributes online?
A: The Glenn ones are pretty funny. The meme about being jealous of how Glenn does some nonsense and then gets laid? It’s good for Glenn! In person, a girl on the street once saw me about a block away and then she started walking towards me and doing the whole zombie walk. She regretted it as soon as she got up to me. She was like, “I’m so sorry, that was so embarrassing.”

Flashback Friday | Ten Indian Leading Ladies You Should Know

2013 marks 100 years of Indian cinema — home of the unique film genre affectionately referred to as Bollywood — and through the century, there have been many memorable leading ladies, from Nargis, Sridevi and Rekha to Madhuri Dixit, Aishwarya Rai, Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta and many many more.

This year,  Audrey Magazine highlights some of our favorite Indian actresses ruling contemporary Hindi cinema today.

Here are 10 names to know:

Priyanka Chopra

When the former Miss World (2000) began her career in Bollywood, from her 2002 debut in the Tamil film Thamizhan to her damsel-in-distress role to Hrithik Roshan’s superhero in 2006′s Kriish, there was often more talk about her skimpy outfits than her acting skills. Then 2008 happened: Chopra had six films come out that year, and while the first few were unsuccessful, late 2008 brought the release of Fashion, the first role that got critics talking about her talent rather than her looks — especially when she swept all the major Indian Film Awards that year for Best Actress. Since then, even if the film she’s been in haven’t been acclaimed, people tend to point out Priyanka Chopra’s performance as the best part. Case in point: the awards she’d picked up for playing a murderess in 7 Khoon Maaf and an autistic woman in Barfi! in the last two years.

Fashion
Kaminey

 

Vidya Balan

Vidya Balan has been acting in feature films for a decade, but she broke out into stardom recently with her role in The Dirty Picture, the biopic about the adult film actress Silk Smitha who was popular in the 1980s and 90s. The role earned her Filmfare and National Film Awards for Best Actress in 2012, and she followed it up with the crime thriller Kahaani, in which she plays a pregnant woman in search of her missing husband.

Kajol

Kajol (also pictured at the top of the article) has been a household name since 1995′s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ), which kickstarted a filmgoing craze (it is the longest running Indian film in history, and as of Jan 2013, the film is still playing in a theater in Mumbai, 17 years later) as well as a timeless romantic pairing (Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan have acted in six films together). But in recent years, Kajol has brought an even greater depth to her performances. Just check her out as the blind woman in Fanaa or the grieving mother in My Name is Khan. You’ll feel like a really beautiful, soulful woman just punched you in the stomach.

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone made her debut in 2007′s Om Shanti Om, playing two characters that looked identical though they’re from different time periods (it can happen, just go with it). But she gave both characters enough nuance to prove to audiences that she was more than a tall, strikingly-beautiful model — even though she was definitely tall and definitely strikingly beautiful. Since then, she’s taken on different types of characters, from the modern-day romantic lead in Love Aaj Kal to the downward-spiraling toxic friend in Cocktail.

Om Shanti Om
Love Aaj Kal

 

Anushka Sharma

Another actress who got her start in a Shah Rukh Khan film (2008′s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi), Anushka Sharma soon ventured out on her own and found another leading man that she seemed to have good chemistry with, on and off screen. Acting opposite co-star Ranveer Singh (quick tangent: check out his abs in Audrey’s Daily SHAG here) in Band Baaja Baaraat and Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl, Sharma really showcased her natural charisma and ability to lead a film. In 2012, she reunited with Shah Rukh Khan in Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Whereas in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, she played the mourning, subdued wife whose life and belief in love needed to be re-ignited by Shah Rukh Khan’s charm, in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, she was the mini-Shah Rukh Khan, who “Shah Rukh Khan”-ed Shah Rukh Khan himself. I know it sounds confusing. But just watch the movies.

Baand Baaja Baaraat
Jab Tak Hai Jaan

 

Katrina Kaif

Born in Hong Kong to a Kashmiri Indian father and an English mother, Katrina Kaif often seems to have a maturity beyond her years onscreen. By 25, she was playing the Chief Minister party leader in the political thriller Raajneeti — and somehow pulling it off. After memorable turns as a civil rights activist circa 9/11 in New York and a diving instructor helping Hrithik Roshan get over his fear of water (and workaholism) in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, she helped jaded modern audiences believe in “old school” true love again in last year’s blockbuster Yash Raj film Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Farah Khan

Farah Khan has been in the industry for what seems like forever: as a choreographer, she is responsible for so many memorable Bollywood dance sequences that it’s almost impossible to count, but some of our favorites include “Chaiya Chiaya,” “Shava Shava,” and “Maahi Ve.” In addition to her choreography, she’s directed memorable films such as Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om. In 2012, she won a Stardust Best Actress Award for her on-screen debut Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi. But even when she’s behind the camera, she is an incomparable leading lady.

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor (daughter of Anil Kapoor, who international audiences know from Slumdog Millionaire and TV’s 24) made her debut in 2007 with Saawariya, opposite Ranbir Kapoor. At the time, Saawariya got a lot of attention, because although the two of them were newcomers to the industry, the film was co-produced by Sony Pictures, and it was the first Bollywood movie to receive a North American release by a Hollywood studio. Since then, Kapoor has landed girl next door roles in romantic comedies, such as Aisha and I Hate Luv Storys.

Kareena Kapoor

A descendant of the legendary Kapoor family, Kareena Kapoor is continuing the legacy started by Prithviraj Kapoor and cemented by Raj Kapoor, as Kareena was most recently named the highest ranking female actress in Forbe India’s Celebrity 100 list. A power player in the industry, Kapoor has been one of India’s highest paid actress in years, starring in blockbusters including Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots, Salman Khan’s Bodyguard, Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One, and most recently reuniting with Aamir Khan in Talaash: The Answer Lies Within.

Steven Yeun Writes Letter to the Thief Who Stole His Backpack

Story by Taylor Weik.

On Sunday night while the rest of America was watching the newest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead and praying our favorite Korean Walker-slayer would live to see another episode, Steven Yeun discovered that someone had broke into his car and stolen his backpack.

The backpack contained his computer, camera, book and notebook “full of my dumb ideas that I will never use.” Yeun, who plays Glenn Rhee on TWD, uploaded a photo of his car, back window shattered, on his personal Instagram account and typed out a letter to the backpack-burglar in the caption.

hey. asshole that broke into my car. I hope you enjoy what you find in my backpack. The computer I’m sure you sell to some other idiot. great. my camera is one of my favorite cameras. it’s my ricoh. enjoy the picture that I took on there of all the beautiful people that I love. but I hope you also enjoy the picture I took of my stupid messy room. you also took my book too, you dick. I was half way through that thing…now I have to start over from the beginning. that’s just the rules. but for real what pisses me off most is that you took my notebook full of my dumb ideas that I will never use. I loved those dumb ideas. it was a constant reminder for me to do better. now I gotta write down all those dumb ideas over again. those are the rules. one particular section had some stand up jokes in there. well there goes my 5 minute set that I’ve been working on about wizards, vertigo and chocobos. you’re a dick. but I still love you.

But seriously though, what kind of a person steals from the guy who plays Glenn?

Vivian Bang Opens Up: Pet Peeves, Emotional Eating And Childhood Memories

HERITAGE: Korean American
AGE: Between 25-45 (who knows with Asians!)
HOMETOWN: Seoul, South Korea; currently in Los Angeles.
CLAIM TO FAME: Bang plays Susan Sullivan on TBS’s Sullivan & Son, the sister to Korean Irish American Steve Byrne’s Steve Sullivan. “Susan is a competent but defensive type-A control freak who is very misunderstood by her family, especially by her mom,” says Bang. “She holds a one-sided competition with her brother, the golden child.”

 

My go-to karaoke song: “Hong Kong Garden” by Siouxie & the Banshees. It’s ironic that I sing this.

Last time I cried: Just now as I’m working on the last day of Sullivan & Son for this season. I get so attached to the amazing, talented cast and crew. It takes a village to raise this baby, and now we have to say a brief goodbye.

What always makes me laugh: Harsh reality. I feel like life is always playing a big joke on us!

My go-to comfort food: Depending on sweet or savory: coffee ice cream or kimchi fried rice.

Last thing I ate: Just now, a Snickers bar to cope with saying goodbye. Ha! I’m an emotional eater; don’t judge me!

A guilty pleasure I don’t feel guilty about: I like to watch double features or sometimes three movies at the cinema on a nice sunny day.

Favorite drink: Currently, The Moscow Mule at Bar Stella.

Pet peeve: Road rage, or when people take themselves too seriously.

Habit I need to break: Sugar addiction and emotional eating.

Talent I’d like to have: Singing or any musical ability. I’m tone-deaf and lack rhythm.

Word or phrase I most overuse: Like. Ok. Oh my god. You know.

Most treasured possession: If there was a fire in my place I guess I’d grab my computer because it has all of my photos and music stored. Then some clothes? OMG.

Greatest fear: Being misunderstood … or maybe not being invited to the party? Which I face daily, ha.

Favorite childhood memory: Playing pretend war with neighborhood friends and hiding out in an abandoned yellow school bus that was parked in the bottom of the creek.

Motto: Get up and just do it. If you fall, just get up again.

What’s cool about being Asian: Family values, loyalty and much more respect for the elderly and their experiences. Also Korean is a rad language to speak. It has many words that cannot be captured in English translation. And the food? Forget it! One word: kimchi.

My job in another life: I’d have probably joined a circus and toured the world with a group of clowns. Oh wait, that is my occupation.

Jimmy Kimmel Prank Using Peculiar Japanese Phone Device

There’s a new smartphone device from Japan with quite the unexpected ability. A Japanese tech brand named Scentee has released a plug-in accessory which attaches directly to your phone. The device then sprays the fragrance of your choice whenever you receive a message.

Los Angeles Times reports the available scents include  ”rose, mint, curry, jasmine, cinnamon roll, lavender, apple, strawberry, ylang-ylang (a fragrant flower), coconut, and if you remember the fried corn soup fritters at KFC Japan from earlier this year, the corn soup scent should come as no surprise. There’s also a limited-edition Korean BBQ collection with two meat scents and baked potato. A bacon scent is in the works.”

The device carries 100 sprays per capsule and can be refilled for $5. Still not convinced? Check out this (slightly strange) commercial that Scentee has released for this product.

Even if this product isn’t on your wishlist, it certainly caught the attention of Jimmy Kimmel. After learning about this device, Jimmy Kimmel got a new idea for his “Lie Witness News” Prank series.

Kimmel got a crew to go out with a fake Scentee product and interviewed unsuspecting pedestrians. The crew told them that the phone device was capable of smelling like anything they wanted. Of course, the fake device wasn’t actually working, but that didn’t stop the pedestrians from showing their amazement. Watch the hilarious reactions below.

Live Marriage Proposal Makes Viewers Uncomfortable

A few weeks ago, we brought you the most elaborate marriage proposal in history and, as expected, we were met with mixed reviews. The proposal made some viewers sigh with envy while others sighed out of boredom.

Viewers simply could not agree on whether or not the 27-minute-long proposal was cute or too much. However, viewers all seemed to agree on their opinion of the following proposal.

This past Thursday, the Today show was about to interview Simone Jhingoor for her work in Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation, a non-profit organization that provides services to low-income women and their families. Suddenly, her boyfriend Chirag Shah appeared to say a few words. He then got down on one knee and proposed to her on live television.

Cute right?

Apparently, the public doesn’t think so. While the idea of a public marriage proposal sounds nice, just about every media outlet has called this particular proposal “awkward.”  The Stir describes the whole ordeal by stating, “Before Simone got a chance to tell us [about her organization], she was interrupted by the most awkward proposal ever. Her boyfriend Chirag Shah apparently thought it was a good idea to show up, grab the microphone from Al, and give a pretty me-centric speech before asking Simone to marry him.”

Bustle described the inappropriate tactic of having Jhingoor believe she was allowed to speak about what she was passionate about.

Jhingoor was duped into thinking she’d just earned a shot to share her professional success and passion with the entire country, giving her a level of professional validation few of us ever have the opportunity to enjoy. It’s a dream come true for any one — man or woman — who’s thoroughly dedicated to their work. But before Jhingoor can even utter a syllable about her job or what she does to help the people of the Bronx, she’s whisked away to hear a diatribe about her now-fiancé and his boyhood dreams

 

Jezebel agreed with Bustle’s sentiments and seemed irritated with Shah’s “self-centered” speech:

Suddenly, her boyfriend, Chirag Shah, showed up with a rather self-centered (“I moved, MY dream”) over-rehearsed speech that turned into a marriage proposal. Bait and switch, dude.

As Simone realized what was happening, she tried to fix her hair. She had a tight-lipped smile on her face, but she seemed slightly annoyed. Still, Chirag got on one knee and Simone “yes.” Their friends were behind her, cheering. There was a stiff hug.

But immediately afterwards, when Al asked if she had any idea Chirag was about to propose, Simone said, “No! I thought I was here talking about my organization. I’m giving back to the community!” Right. You thought it was your moment — you were excited for your moment — and he made it all about him.

 
While the public had no problem analyzing the proposal and slamming Shah for his awkward methods, it may be important to hear what the couple has to say. Simone Jhingoor has openly stated that she is upset with the negative reactions and does not believe that her fiance stole her spotlight at all. In fact, the Today show posted a follow-up on Friday with some details about the organization. When YourTango asked Jhingoor to comment on the negative backlash to the proposal, she says:

I am unhappy about the recent backlash that was received from my on-air engagement to Chirag. He does not deserve to be labeled self-centered on feminist websites like Jezebel critiquing the entire experience when he is the most thoughtful person I know. I am moved by the beautiful proposal he arranged out of a genuine intention to make me happy. All of my close friends and family members cried when they saw it because of how sweet it was. My time on the show was never supposed to be about my work as it was about a proposal Chirag wanted to surprise me with on our four-year anniversary. Also, I am generally a very calm and centered person, which is a result of much of the personal change work that I have engaged in. It was disappointing for people to apply their own lens and cultural biases to interpret that I was pissed off and upset about not getting to speak about my work. Plus, Chirag has always been supportive of my social change work and activism, which is what I love about him.

Watch the proposal for yourself and tell us what you think.

 

You Won’t Believe What Steven Yeun Is Ashamed of

This past Sunday night, The Walking Dead fans were glued to their screen to watch the much-anticipated season 4 premiere. AMC reported that this premiere broke the series record with 16.1 million viewers.

Of course, we were most excited to see our favorite character, Glenn, continue with his on-screen romance. Actor Steven Yeun mentioned there would be “more loving, less shoving”  and true his word, the episode was filled with Glenn’s worry over Maggie’s well-being.

But if you’re like us and didn’t think one episode was enough Steven Yeun, then you’re in luck. The Korean actor made an appearance on Conan and divulged quite a bit of information about his personal life. If you thought our list of 5 Reasons We Love Glenn was not enough, how about some reasons to love Steven Yeun?

During one portion of the interview, Yeun revealed which of his body parts he was uncomfortable with. Can you guess what it is?

steven n

That would be his abnormally small nipples. At least he thinks they are. During the interview, he claims that while most men have quarter-sized nipples, he has maybe half a dime. Check out the hilarious conversation below:

 

Yeun also talked about very unfortunate outcomes of his film location. Even more horrifying than walkers, he describes finding a tick latched onto a very unfortunate body part. “I had a guy… on my guy.” says Yeun.

 

Finally, Yeun goes against his character’s natural instinct. While Glenn has proven to be a survivor, Yeun has other plans. He claims that if zombies/walkers were to take over, he would just get bit. He reasons that the experience may very well be orgasmic.
