Paul Mescal adds ‘good kisser’ to his resume

Paul Mescal is a man of many talents. Since his breakthrough role in Normal People, the Irish actor has captivated fans with his offscreen charm and his onscreen savvy, nabbing an Oscar nomination for his role in last year’s Aftersun. Now, his co-star in an upcoming movie has confirmed Mescal is gifted in the bedroom, too.

In a red carpet interview at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, Andrew Scott, who plays opposite Mescal in Andrew Haigh’s queer romance All of Us Strangers, was asked about their onscreen affair. Interviewer Amelia Dimoldenberg, best known for her web series Chicken Shop Date, asked Scott the question on everybody’s lips: “Is he a good kisser?” 

“Paul is a good kisser, yes,” Scott replied.

“Okay. Just wondering,” Dimoldenberg said.

“For journalistic reasons,” Scott quipped back — certainly not because Dimoldenberg, like the rest of the internet, has a crush on Mescal or anything like that.

And indeed, Dimoldenberg’s groundbreaking journalism just might earn her a Pulitzer, if fan reactions to her question are anything to go by.

Dimoldenberg herself was happy to take credit: “Investigative journalism at its finest!” she wrote on social media.

Then again, could Scott really have given any other answer?

Scott looked rather handsome on the red carpet himself, and fans of both actors can’t wait to see them as a couple in the upcoming film. In All of Us Strangers, Scott and Mescal play neighbors who stumble into a relationship, all while Scott’s character is reliving memories of his dead parents, played by Jamie Bell and Claire Foy. It’s received nothing but praise on the festival circuit and is sure to be a must-watch when it hits theaters in December.

All of Us Strangers releases in theaters on December 22.
