Ross Lynch of R5 and Teen Beach Movie recently gave back with Heal the Bay to clean up Venice Beach, and he took some time to chat with us about everything from helping his community to his rumored crush on Austin & Ally co-star Laura Marano! Check out Ross' dish below.
Why is community service so important? Community service has always been very important to my dad, so I've picked that up from him. I enjoy surfing and spending time at the beach, so it's great to be out here with the cast of Teen Beach Movie and Heal the Bay to keep the beaches clean.
What's your favorite scene in Teen Beach Movie and why? My favorite scene in Teen Beach Movie is one of the more emotional ones where my character Brady learns that his girlfriend Mack is leaving. You see him a little upset in that scene, but he's also really carefree and relaxed throughout the movie -- he shows a range of different emotions, which was fun for me to play.
What's your favorite song in Teen Beach Movie and why?* My favorite son in the movie would have to be 'Falling For Ya' that **Grace Phipps who plays Lela sings. I like a lot of the cool synth in that song.
How important were the costumes for the film? Since this movie is a twist on those classic beach party movies everything from the costumes to the music and the even the lingo were important to really take you back to the 60s, but from the eyes of Mack and Brady, so the audience can relate.
Your style is pretty surfer-ish, so was your character's wardrobe a big stretch for you -- or were you excited to wear all of the clothes? One of my favorite outfits was the biker one I wore in 'Cruisin' For a Bruisin''…the black leather jacket, glasses and white T-shirt. It was classic.
You have great hair! How long does it take you to do it in the morning? My mom actually does it. Especially for photo shoots and stuff. She's like my stylist, basically. It takes her 10 or 15 minutes.
What happens when you do it yourself? Looks the same. Actually, I just don't do it. I'll just let it go. It just looks messy.
Would you ever consider dating your co-star Laura Marano? Why or why not? Just because I'm working with her and we have to have that chemistry and all that stuff, I don't see it happening in the near future. But you never know what's going to happen in 10 years.
Does it bother you that fans think you're together in real life? Why or why not? I think it's funny. Nothing really bothers me too much. I think it's kind of funny.
Explain your ideal girl. Not too short, like a good height. Athletic, probably. Adventurous. Spontaneous. A girl that smiles a lot. Not too serious, but can be serious.
