Fame is disorienting: Daniel Kaluuya

BANG! NEWS – British actor Daniel Kaluuya has revealed he finds fame to be “disorienting”.

The 30-year-old actor has quickly become one of the most sought-after stars in Hollywood, following his performances in Get Out and Black Panther.

He explained, “It’s not what I got into this for – to wear suits or shake hands. It’s disorienting. But it’s more disorienting because of where I come from. After Get Out, I finished Black Panther and went back to the estate. Then I was nominated. Kaboom! Who am I? I had to understand that what had happened was going to be permanent.”

Daniel learned a “truckload” from his first awards season. He told the Sunday Times newspaper, “It’s hard to observe people if people are looking at you. But I realised rich people can be really desperate. I didn’t know that. I thought that when you’re rich, you’re good.”
