“I’m kind of a hopeless romantic myself. I’m all about it.”

“Everyone in my life really dislikes this form of self-care. I will just delete everything on my phone, social media, everything. I’ll put it in airplane mode and I’ll be like, “Peace out, I’m gone for the day.””

“Listen, I live my philosophy like this and it’s done so well for me: you don’t want to marry, or like a long-term relationship, you don’t want that bright flame, you want a best friend, you want something steady.”

“I think there’s something beautiful about just loving the person for who they are deep down in their heart.”

“I’ve talked to a lot of A-list actors that have been working every day or their lives, and when I ask them for advice, it’s usually like, ‘Dude, I have no idea what I’m doing.’ That gave me so much peace just knowing that nobody knows what they’re doing, and they’re just having fun while doing it.” 

“It’s just been really fun to see the fruit of your work come together and to have people enjoy it,” he says. “At the end of the day, we’re here to entertain people and to tell a story.”

Gavin Casalegno has a lot of acting and modeling experience throughout the years of his journey. Surely, fans all over the world cannot wait to see his career grow even more in the future.
