Gavin MacIntosh made waves on Jennifer Lopez's show The Fosters when he and Hayden Byerly engaged in the youngest same-sex smooch in TV history.
Now, he speaks to Celebuzz! about that lip-lock, and about his title as WhoSay's Selfie King of 2015.
About the kiss, Gavin says:
I think it’s raised awareness. I mean, I’d say that most important thing that I can do with my role is bring positive light to this cause. A lot of kids have no idea as to what kind of struggles that LGBT kids go through everyday, just going through normal tasks in life. Being able to play a character and showing them that it’s hard—it’s hard just living sometimes. If I can help with that, that’s great.
As far as his selfie-taking prowess, he's amazed anyone perceives him to have any:
Well first, I never even expected to be nominated for Selfie King of the Year. My mom had actually told me, and I was like, “Are you sure they have the right guy and aren’t looking at somebody else’s page?” I wasn’t under the impression that I was taking great selfies, but I guess somebody is!
Hm. I don’t know. I guess don’t make too much of a face or anything. I don’t do duck faces! Sometimes if you take too many, you find yourself maybe looking a little unnatural. So maybe take a break and then come back and try again.
