Actor Glen Powell Says Social Media Is Killing Chivalry (and He Has a Fix)

Jillian Knox Finley

Glen Powell's not a player; he just crushes a lot—on TV. Contrary to his onscreen alter egos, in real life, the actor and native Texan is a far cry from womanizing bad boy.

Best known perhaps for his ever-so-quotable turn as Chad Radwell on Fox's Scream Queens, Powell can currently be seen in Academy Awardwinning director Richard Linklater's latest film, Everybody Wants Some!!, the much anticipated "spiritual sequel" to '90s cult classic Dazed and Confused. As Finnegan, a philosophizing ladies' man and tight-pants enthusiast, Powell steals more that a few scenes from his onscreen '80s bros.  

I caught up with the actor to hear him sound off on everything from how social media is obliterating the modern dating landscape to just what his mom has to say about his wardrobe. Texas is turning out quite the chivalrous pro-feminist gentlemen these days.
