Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul admits he?s obsessed with Stranger Things. Guesting on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, he said he couldn?t believe that networks passed on the script initially, until Netflix took it under its wing. When Paul found out from Fallon that all 4 kids (Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin and Finn Wolfhard) are coming to the show next week, he went on full fanboy mode and asked if he could come and see them.
Turns out Paul has met Stranger Things? telekinetic lead, Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, when he was tapped by Elle Magazine to interview the 12-year-old star. It all started when he ?confessed his love? to the show?s directors via a Tweet where he said, ?Dear Duffer Brothers, Thank you. Sincerely, Everyone.? From this tweet, he received an offer from Elle to interview the breakout star, and he immediately said yes.
?She?s the BEST!? Aaron gushed. He shared that he was terrified as he conducted the interview. Bobby was with her family vacationing in Spain, and all he can think of was how terrified he was and that he had to make [the interview] good. He even went as far as saying that he and his wife have talked about wanting to adopt the young star.
