Tyler (on how Shelley and Tyler first met): My truly most embarrassing moment was when I went into the hair and make-up trailer, and I was aware that Jill Wagner who plays Kate was back on the show and I’d gone in. I had some stuff on my hands and hair, and I see this one getting her hair done, so it’s just this side hair thing and it’s very similar to Jill. And I came to give her a hug, just thought I’d run over and say hi. So I ran over, gave her a kiss on the cheek, turned, definitely not Jill, and I immediately went, “You’re not Jill, you’re not Jill, I just insulted you, I’m so sorry. Oh, my God, hi, I’m Tyler, nice to meet you.”
Holland: In Tyler Hoechlin’s world, a kiss on the cheek is an insult.
Tyler: I just invaded her personal space!
GOD can we talk about Tyler Hoechlin for a second and how him telling this story repeatedly as an embarrassing moment is actually so fucking great because a) he recognizes that he did in fact invade a stranger’s personal space and b) I’m sure she understood it was an honest mistake but c) he doesn’t just brush it off like nothing because he’s a fucking prince goddammit.
I think maybe when dudes tell us they’re “nice guys” we should be like “idek you don’t appear to be Tyler Hoechlin tho.”
