"I think growth comes from making mistakes"
Agents of SHIELD actress Chloe Bennet has defended her boyfriend Logan Paul once again.
The premier for the all-Asian cast film took place on Tuesday night in LA. Speaking at the premier to ET, Bennet said that she has a strong connection with Paul.
“Logan and I connected on a level, on a significant level early on,” she said. “I think that, people make mistakes and if you can’t have room to grow from a mistake and if you can’t forgive people changing, I don’t think, really, we have anything. I think growth comes from making mistakes.”
Paul came under fire for posting a video featuring a dead body in Japan’s ‘Suicide Forest’. When asked why she would date someone with such a personality, Bennet responded, “cause he’s kind, creative, funny, vibrantly curious about life, weird as f**k in all the best ways, a big dork, and he’s one of my best friends. It doesn’t make sense to a lot of people but it doesn’t have [to]. He’s changed my life for the better and I’ve done the same for him.”
Speaking about Crazy Rich Asians, Bennet said, “I’m just so excited. I think the fact that Hollywood is finally [giving] the Asian community a movie like this, and honestly, I feel like we gave it to ourselves.”
A few months ago, Bennet discussed moving to China and her Asian features.
