Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul answers fan questions on Reddit

On TV, he plays a drug-using meth manufacturer, an occasional killer and accessory to who-knows-how-many crimes. In real life, Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul is a Lollapalooza-attending, Emmy Award winning dream boat, a real-life nice guy who isn’t afraid to say hi to tourists gawking outside his home.

The actor took to social aggregate site Reddit to participate in an AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) and spent the next two hours answering fan’s questions. We’ve compiled some of the best answers, but you should probably zip over to Reddit to read them all.
