Recently, Hellcats hottie Matt Barr took some time to answer some questions from his ever-growing fanbase with U Interview. The humble, sultry star talked about his topless workouts (yummy), 'ship with Ashley Tisdale, and his on-screen character, Dan Patch. Turns out Matt's a lot more like Dan than his One Tree Hillpersona, Psycho Derek. Um, that's good to know.
On his relationship with The Tis (Savannah Monroe): "[Ashley will] talk about me having my shirt off, because I’m always working out on set for fun, and so she’ll call me Matt McConaughey, cause I’ll do push-ups during lunch, and stuff like that."
On similarities with his role: "Maybe it’s because we’re both from the South, but Dan’s sort of a no BS kind of guy, and that’s just how I was raised... I think there’s sort of an authenticity in Dan that I see in myself."
On portraying a normal dude versus a crazy killer: "Well, my mom and my grandma like it a lot more. They can actually watch it."
On his tendency to work out sans shirt: "I could live life in flip-flops and shorts. In fact, I prefer it. So I like to be naked, what can I say?"
