David Henrie revealed to Christian Post about Disney Channel stars: ‘I think everyone as they transition out of a younger show wants to transition into a career of acting unless you didn’t like acting and you don’t want to do that anymore.
You have to transition out of it and that comes with doing older, more mature roles, but that doesn’t mean doing crazy things that just insult your audience. Your audience has to grow with you.’
On growing up Catholic: ‘I think our generation especially has a weird stigma towards families, like people aren’t wanting to have families and aren’t wanting to have kids and that’s weird. I think that’s really weird and not normal and I think our generation is the first generation in the history of mankind that has had this sort of attitude and this feeling towards marriage and family and children.
I get bummed out a lot of times with my peers because a lot of actors are running away from their families to come out here and act. They don’t have the support of their families with comes with its own set of problems. If you’re running away from something to pursue something else you better be a really tough cookie.
You really better have a good head on your shoulders and strong moral fiber otherwise you’re leaving structure to pursue something that’s not structure and you’re just letting your emotions take you wherever you want and if you’re just living life by your emotions, you’re going to blow with the wind.’
On his fellow Millennials: ‘The YOLO generation. ‘You only live once.’ ‘Do whatever you want.’ ‘Let your feelings guide you.’ That’s the worst advice ever! Let your feelings guide you – that’s terrible. My feelings make me want to do crazy things all the time but no, you do what’s right.’
