Pete Davidson has finally shared the secret that has been on everyone’s mind –- what is it about him that women find so attractive?
The Saturday Night Live comedian has dated a plethora of successful, beautiful women in the last decade including Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale, Phoebe Dynevor and now, Kim Kardashian. People have speculated its due to his openness about his mental health struggles, his straightforward approach to dating and his declaration that he is “totally comfortable” being with a woman who is more successful than him. Now, Davidson, 28, has given his own theory as to what makes him so irresistible.
During a set at the 9th Annual Patrice O’Neal Comedy Benefit Concert at New York City Center last week (January 18), Davidson compared himself to a discounted DVD movie. “There seems to be a curiosity about me, is what my friends tell me,” the comedian told the audience, as reported by US Weekly. “I was trying to figure out how to explain myself to someone because I was doing an interview.”
The King of Staten Island star compared himself to movies you’d find in a bargain bin of a DVD store – while some belong in the bin, others are widely loved and a steal for anyone who finds one at a discounted price. Citing movies including Predator 2, Shrek Forever After and Tropic Thunder, Davidson clarified that Tropic Thunder is a “classic” and that it “doesn’t belong” in the bin.
“I’m Tropic Thunder. I’m the diamond in the trash,” he said. “It’s a steal.”
