Aldridge is one of My TV Boyfriends and has been since he played Arsehole Guy in Fleabag. I haven't seen Cabin, but he is the *only* reason to watch Spoiler Alert. The Long Call is on a streaming service I don't have, but season 1 of Pennyworth is a bit of a slog (I am not the audience for superheroes' backstories, well, one of their butler's backstory), and Aldridge is not in it enough to warrant me watching S2 or 3.

Ben’s hot, but he doesn’t necessarily fit the narrative everyone’s made for him. According to pretty reliable sources, he’s not the top people want him to be, and he tends to pick guys who treat him badly and smack him around a bit. Makes him less attractive.

From all the gossip here we know that Ben LOVES a daddy. No wonder he was devastated when Pedro dumped him. Now the Pedro fangirls won’t forgive him for badmouthing Pedro in the press, even if he didn’t use his name.

This was post-Game of Thrones and Pedro was the lead on Narcos at the time (when he had Ben come visit him). So he’s definitely talking about Pascal.

Don't blame him for this, it's usually a symptom of a lazy journalist whose only research is googling the last interview done by their subject. I spent a year doing interviews and Q&As for a project and was basically asked the exact same questions every time. But you have to act like you've never heard the question before and give it your all.
