Evan Rachel Wood told Millie Bobby Brown she’s better off licking a toilet seat than reading negative comments online.
Wood said, while talking with Brown on Variety’s “Actors on Actors,” that the piece of advice originally came from Selma Blair. During the interview, the “Stranger Things” and “Westworld” stars discussed how to handle criticism.
“The best advice someone ever gave me, and it’s Selma Blair, and she said, ‘Don’t ever read message boards. It does you more good to lick a toilet seat than to read the nasty things that people say about you.’ Lick a toilet seat before you listen to the nasty people that, you know, just want to anonymously poke fun,” she told Brown.
The interview will air in its entirety on Variety’s “Actors on Actors” Season 6, presented by Shutterstock, which premieres June 13 on PBS SoCal.
