Aidan Alexander is unstoppable. After taking over the digital world with over 1M followers cross-platform (YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter) he has now set his mark on the film and fashion. He is a constant fixture at top fashion event and has wrapped a slew of projects in Hollywood, including the recently released A Cowgirl Story, with one of our favorite POPULAR girls Bailee Madison. So we couldn’t wait to meet up with the rising star to chat about his journey to the top. Check it out.
1. What gets you up in the morning? A lot of things get me up in the morning. I feel really lucky to wake up every morning and be able to do what I love, I am so grateful and I know that not everyone has this privilege.
2. Your biggest virtue? I would say loyalty is my biggest virtue. If I love you I will do anything for you.
3. Your biggest vice? My biggest vice is being mischievous. Sometimes I get into trouble because I’m curious of the outcome of certain things, so I do them to see what will happen.
4. Do you have a party trick? If I’m at a house party and they have a piano I always have to play it. Everyone usually gets annoyed I am playing over their rap music, but it’s pretty funny.
5. How would you describe your style? I would describe my style as 1990’s New York. I love older clothes and get a lot of my wardrobe from vintage shops in LA. There is just something about the 90’s that is so fun to me.
6. What would constitute a perfect day for you? My perfect day would consist of watching old movies all day. I rarely get time to do this anymore and it’s something I did growing up that made me the happiest. The movies don’t need to be “old-old” but even early 2000’s movies are so fun to binge watch. I used to play hooky from school when I was younger and watch movies for hours.
7. What would your very last meal entail? Sushi. Sushi from Robata on Third Street in Los Angeles, preferably. A triple hot roll.
8. Three people—dead or alive, real or fictional—that you’d like to invite to dinner? Theodore Roosevelt, Robert De Nero, and Meryl Streep. I love Roosevelt and Streep and De Nero are my favorite actors. I would kill to have lunch with them.
9. Turn ons? Nice people who do what makes them happy and don’t care what other people think is a big turn on. I think everyone is always so in their heads and don’t do things that they want to do because they’re afraid of what others will say.
10. Turn offs? I think passing judgment on people is a really big turn off. We’re all different and you never know what someone is dealing with.
11. Tell us a secret. I crashed my mom’s car into a fire hydrant when I was 11, I didn’t know R stood for Reverse!
12. Your favorite quote? “Is it better to speak or die?” André Aciman
13. An embarrassing moment? When I was younger my mom had a friend who would bring her daughter over and I always had a really big crush on her! One time she was leaving and I went outside and as she was getting in the car I shut her door to be nice, except her leg was still in the car and I totally broke her leg. It was awful.
14. Your proudest moment? I think my proudest moment was booking my first film. I worked really hard and I was so happy that I got to travel to film a project. It was a whirlwind.
15. Could you tell us more about some of the projects you are working on? I recently wrapped three projects, “A Cowgirl’s Story,” which is out now and The NY Times recently named it one of the top 10 films on iTunes, and then two other films called “F@#! the Prom” and “Vikes.” I can’t wait for everyone to see them!
