RYAN Eggold says he’s a 90 year old man in a 30-year-old’s body.
The hunky star of hit Seven show The Blacklist revealed that while he likes attention from admirers, he’s hardly a lothario on the romance front.
“I am an old man,” he told Confidential. “I go for the quiet. I wouldn’t say I handle attention well, I’d say I stumble over pick-up lines poorly. I’m not good at any of that.”
Eggold, who plays Tom Keen in the series alongside James Spader’s Red, is in Australia for a few days, attending Melbourne Cup at Flemington on Tuesday and now in Sydney.
While he is on Twitter, Eggold admitted to not being one for technology.
“I’m not equipped for the social media thing,” said Eggold, also known for his work on the hit US series, 90210. “I’ve been a 90-year-old man since I was 12-years-old. I’m not good with it but I try to stay at least somewhat involved.”
