Actor Garrett Clayton is a typical man — he likes to go to the arcade, eat buffalo wild wings and play PS4 — except the average man doesn’t have 700K plus social media followers. We met up with the actor in LA recently, ahead of the launch of his new movie Don’t Hang Up, to discuss everything from his perfect date, to his ideal food day. Clayton revealed his go to snack is nutella, and his last meal would be with his mom (awww). Read through below to learn more about this up-and-coming young talent.
From start to finish what would be your ideal food day?
Breakfast would be scrambled egg whites, crispy bacon, chocolate chip pancakes and a mimosa. Lunch would be a burger from Millers on Michigan Avenue. Dinner would be schwarma and grape leaves from my favorite Arabic food restaurant. Desert would be hot fudge sundae with a brownie.
How do you always start your day? What’s your go to breakfast?
Usually I wake up about thirty minutes late, shower, pack my backpack with everything I need for the day, and forget to have breakfast.
What’s your idea of the perfect first date?
Buffalo Wild Wings, followed by an arcade and then maybe end the night with a movie.
You never liked X till you tried it at Y…
I never liked cats till my parents got me one when I was a teenager.
What would your last meal be? Who would it be with?
I’d eat with my mom. It would be a filet (medium), mashed potatoes and broccoli. Krispy Kreme doughnuts hot off the line for dessert.
What’s your go-to on set snack?
Nutella is my go-to.
The app you can’t live without…
Facebook keeps me in touch with my family.
Where do you love to travel? What won’t you travel without?
I love traveling. Period. I love getting to explore! Last year I got to go to Germany, Armenia, and Croatia!
What are your favorite cities for food?
LA has such a vast amount of restaurants and people from all over the world. It’s nice to live in a place where I can try so many different things. I really want to go to New Orleans. Aside from being an amazing place, I hear the food is even better.
One thing women should know about men that they don’t:
We always will want you to tie our tie.
In the same vein as what is the new black in fashion, what’s the new potato right now?
For me in my life, Star Wars Battlefront on PS4 is the new Elder Scrolls.
