Glen Powell has shared his thoughts on romantic comedy movies, believing it is 'silly' to mock the genre.

Speaking at the Sundance Film Festival, the 35-year-old actor said that rom-coms bring joy to audiences and offer actors diverse roles.

“At least for me, I’ve always been a fan of movies in general, and I always find it silly when certain actors diminish certain genres,” said Glen.

“At its best execution, it gives an audience such joy and such fun, and as an actor, you do get to play a lot of gears. To kind of scoff at a genre and look down on it is kind of silly,” the Top Gun star added.

Citing the example of his latest film Anyone But You, Glen said, “It was such a treat to see audiences dance out of the theatre and feel so happy after watching a movie.”

'To see the box office not just stick but grow has been such a cool lesson that sometimes the genres that have been forgotten are the ones audiences are craving the most,' he added.
