My mother thought I was dead: Matt Healy
Scottish actor Matt Healy’s mother Denise Welch thought he was dead after she saw a rumour on Twitter that he’d died of an overdose.
“Russell Brand had that he died in a snowboarding accident, that’s quite funny. Someone said I had an overdose in my flat, who’s making that s**t up? I didn’t. I was on a plane to America,” contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
“My mum rang me in tears. She thought I was dead for six hours. That’s not cool at all. That is the s**t I don’t like (about fame),” he added.
The 25-year-old, son of actor Tim Healy, has grown up dealing with fame but admits there have been a number of rumours about him and he isn’t a fan of the attention that comes with his band’s success.
“There have been loads of rumours. (One) that I slept with Rashida Jones, Quincy Jones’ daughter, I didn’t sleep with her. I wish I had. She’s wife material,” he said.
“I don’t really like it (the fame) on a personal level. I don’t like being so exposed and having things that I don’t think about being topics of conversation for other people. I don’t like the fact that every time I get out of a car I have a f***ing camera in my face,” he added.
