Hollywood Actor-Director Max Minghella Says He's Obsessed With BTS's V + Blames

According to Hollywood stars Max Minghella and Elle Fanning, Dylan O’Brien is personally responsible for their obsession with BTS!

English actor Max Minghella, who is known for his roles in the American series “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “The Mindy Project,” as well as the Academy Award-winning film “The Social Network,” is making his directorial debut this year with the new film “Teen Spirit,” which will star actress Elle Fanning.

On September 9, while promoting their film at the Toronto International Film Festival, Max Minghella and Elle Fanning confirmed that they are both fans of BTS. In an interview with MTV News, the actress explained, “[Max] introduced me to BTS.”

When asked which of them was the bigger fan, Elle Fanning replied, “I would say Max, for sure. He loves V.”

Max Minghella then revealed that his close friend, “Maze Runner” star Dylan O’Brien, had started his obsession with the group. He said with a laugh, “I blame Dylan O’Brien for this. Dylan O’Brien is the person who introduced me to BTS.”

He went on to share that his BTS obsession was so severe that it had even gotten in the way of editing his film. “It’s not been a good thing for anybody in my life,” he joked. “I’m deeply obsessed. It has been my main focus. It was detrimental to the editorial of this film, to be honest. I was very distracted.”

Elle Fanning teasingly interjected, “[He was busy] learning the dance moves to ‘DNA.'”

Max Minghella later added that he would love to direct a concert film or documentary about BTS, remarking, “I would love to do a Jon Chu-esque tour life [film]. That would be great.”
