“One person jumped and kissed me without any warning whatsoever … on the cheek,” Eichner said. “But I’m not Harry Styles. That’s not happening to me very often — off camera, even. That was very strange. I did think because of that, ‘Wow, I understand the challenges of being Justin Bieber.’ I can’t imagine that interaction times 9 billion all day every day.”
The entire interview can be watched when the two-part fourth-season premiere of “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” airs June 12 and June 19 on PBS SoCal. Presented by Shopbop/East Dane, the episodes will also be available to stream on Variety.com.
