Tell Us About Yourself(ie): Ross Butler

The actor takes our Q&A!

Posted on

What's the wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

A stylish piano shot. It came with one of the phone themes. I can play piano but I'm not THAT passionate about playing that I made it my background on my own volition.

When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

I always take a look at the beer selection and order something I've never had before.

What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?

"Really." I just read one of the interviews I did over the phone and I literally counted all the really's and determined I had a problem. It just rolls off the tongue.

What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

Olivia Cooke. I saw a trailer for her new movie and I realized she kinda looks a lot like a friend of mine, but I had to look it up to make sure.

Who is the last person that called or texted you?

Best friend from back home, Sam.

What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

I was taking a nap at my friend's parent's house and I was having an intense dream and out of nowhere, I sit up and yell "EXCUSE ME" right at my friend's dad. He just stared back at me, completely off guard, and all I could do is lay back down. After a couple seconds we all cracked up, but those were some awkward few seconds.

When is the last time you went to a theater?

I just saw Spy a few nights ago. Hilarious.

What TV show should everyone be watching?


And what is your TV guilty pleasure?

See above. And Bob's Burgers. One of the most underrated shows on TV.

What is the one food you cannot resist?

If someone offers me a hot plate of Penne Arrabiata, fageddaboutit.

What's the first CD you bought?

Smash Mouth's Astro Lounge.

What music are you currently listening to?

Smash Mouth's Astro Lounge.

What movie makes you laugh the most?

Zoolander. There are so many scenes where I cannot, under any circumstance, not laugh. Most notably. "You can read minds?!" (Props to anyone who knows what scene I'm talking about).

What drives you absolutely crazy?

Passive aggressiveness and cocktail umbrellas.

What's your favorite day of the year?

October 4th, my mom's birthday. (THERE YA GO, MOM)

What was your first online screen name?

Blackthunder11 on AOL. Out of all the color/noun/number combinations, don't ask me why I went with Black Thunder 11. I wasn't even 11 at the time.

What's your favorite emoji?

I don't really use emojis. Is that weird? In the time it takes for me to even FIND the flexed arm emoji, I could just type that I'm at the gym.

Pick one: Kittens or puppies?

Puppies. I'm allergic to cats so I'm psychologically wired to associating kittens with itchy eyes and popping Claritin.

New York or Los Angeles?

New York food, Los Angeles weather

Comedy or drama?

Dramedy. If everything could be like Forrest Gump, I'd be happy.

Bacon or Nutella?

Bacon. Hasn't someone created a Bacon Nutella sandwich or something? If not, get on that. I feel like that could be the next Cro-nut.

Coffee or tea?

Coffee. Although one of my cast mates has been explaining tea to me and I'm starting to appreciate it more.

'80s or '90s?

90s. But LATE 90s, to be clear.

Britney or Christina?

Christina. I just think she's the better singer. I listened to both of their music but I always thought Xtina had legendary pipes.


NSYNC. *NSYNC was actually my first album, but I didn't buy it of my own free will. Not to say it wasn't fantastic.

Beyonce or Rihanna?

Beyonce. Even though she's told me that she doesn't think I'm ready for that jelly, which I am, I'm a fan.

Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?

Lizzie McGuire came a bit earlier when I still watched Disney Channel so I definitely watched that more.

And finally: tell us a secret.

When I was a kid, I had blue chicken pox. I don't know why, I don't know how, I've tried Googling it, something to do with oxygen in my blood or something. I dunno. I had blue chicken pox though.

Catch Ross in Teen Beach 2 this Friday, June 26 at 8 p.m. ET/7C on the Disney Channel.
