During an interview back in February 2018, he walked the red carpet at the New York premiere of Black Panther at MoMA and told Page Six

"The woman I would want to wine and dine from the film is Danai Gurira, but she might be taken. I used to watch her on ‘The Walking Dead,’ so I do have a bit of an obsession with her — and we share the same barber, by the way, so it could actually work out."

Gurira shaved her head while portraying her role in the movie. When asked about women with such look he said,

"I don’t care. I just love women."
