Dr. Who star Matt Smith took home the award for Best Science Fiction Actor at the Scream Awards, and I was enough lucky to chat with him twice through out the night, on the red carpet and backstage after his win. How do I say this without sounding like a creepy, fangirl weirdo: HE IS THE NICEST MAN ALIVE. Seriously, he was goofy and sweet and genuinely humble and he did not laugh at my usage of the term Brit Pack. The guy is a gem. He’s also an incredibly talented actor who’s destined for big screen greatness. Mark my words.
Matt mentioned that he had been videotaping parts of the show to send to his girlfriend, model Daisy Lowe (awww), and we got on the topic of celebrity couples (he doesn’t think they are one) and the unwanted fame that goes along with being part of an A-List duo. He touched on the challenges Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart face and echoed their same sentiments about celebrity and fame (they’re just not that into it). Watch his comments above. Oh how we wish we could hook these guys up on a friend date. They could hide in a pub and chain smoke and drink Heinekens and swap tips on avoiding the paparazzi.
The actor also spoke highly of his dear friend Andrew Garfield. “He’ll be brilliant” as Spiderman, says Smith. (Clip after the jump.) We definitely agree.
