The SNL star had a chat with his close pal Machine Gun Kelly but also with Griffin Gluck, Jon Cryer and other co-stars from the movie Big Time Adolescence that is having its premiere tonight at the Sundance Film Festival! The group talked to Variety, and during the discussion, Pete Davidson opened up about different topics, such as filming in Syracuse but also his high school reputation and his time in rehab.
‘I love Park City, Utah because the last time I was here, I was in rehab, so it’s nice to be on the other side. It also speaks wonders to your rehab facility,’ the comedian stated adding that his recovery happened at Cirque Lodge about four years ago and that it ‘worked out great!’
Davidson and the rest of the cast also revealed how it felt to shoot in Syracuse, and it turns out that Pete is not a big fan.
‘The whole town of Syracuse blows. There’s nothing going on there, so [the cops] were hunting me down the entire time and trying to arrest me. Trying to arrest me for bringing business to your town. Never again, Syracuse,’ he joked before he raised his middle finger.
Later on, Pete also discussed his online presence and social media in general.
‘I can’t go on [social media] for obvious reasons,’ the man said referring to the scary suicide note he previously posted but also the haters who have been harassing him online since his break up from Ariana Grande.
As for how people can deal with cyberbullying, Pete’s advice was just to stay away from social media!

Furthermore, since Big Time Adolescence is about teens in high school, Pete and Kelly opened up about their high school days, saying at the same time that they used to be ‘so lame.’
‘I was so lame in high school. I didn’t have any friends,’ Davidson explained.
