Pedro Pascal recently shared a vulnerable moment with his The Last of Us co-star Bella Ramsey, and it’s now gone viral on social media.
The video featured the actor explaining how he deals with his anxiety every time he poses for the paparazzi. Read on to know more.
Pedro Pascal on his fear
In the video, Pascal and Ramsey could be seen posing together for the shutterbugs while The Last of Us actors attended a For Your Consideration event in Los Angeles on Friday. Bella then asks Pedro why he put his hand on his torso. She then acknowledges his unique posture by placing her hand on her body in the same way.
He responds with a question. “Do you know why?” the actor asks his young co-star.
Bella then kindly tells him to “just breathe.”
Pedro answered his own question, saying, “It’s because my fear is here,” pointing to his torso.
Bella gives him an understanding nod and they continue posing for the photos.
Old photographs of Pedro Pascal show him posing for the cameras in a similar manner. In fact, according to HuffPost, Pascal has been doing it for 20 years, with the most recent example appearing on Monday’s MET Gala red carpet.
Is the way Pedro Pascal deals with his fear correct?
HuffPost quoted Keith Humphreys, a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University, as pointing out that Pascal’s way of dealing with his anxiety is the right one. During a chat with the media portal in 2017, Humphreys said: “Focus on your breathing, put your feet flat on the floor. Smile even if you don’t feel like smiling.” He further advised: “Tense your muscles, then release them, then tighten them again and repeat. Relax your body, and many people will notice that your emotions will follow.
