5. He Loves His Fans
It’s always refreshing to hear that a celebrity appreciates their fan base and Milo Ventimiglia is one of them! While he admits his fans can sometimes get a little too personal, he still enjoys interacting with them. “People can say some aggressive stuff. I’m shocked at how graphically people ask about costars I’ve been intimate with on camera. But I appreciate when someone walks up to me. I’m a fan of people too! It’s not one-sided,” said Ventimiglia in an interview with Cosmopolitan. His new show This Is Us certainly plays on viewers emotions, especially when it comes to Ventimiglia’s character, Jack. He said he’s been getting a lot of “crying emojis, with like heavy excessive tears” from his audience.
