Pedro Pascal is no stranger to road rage. The last of us star said he recently had three incidents of angry driving – including one that ended in a slimy lesson learned.

In a conversation with Beef stars Steven Yeun for Variety – while discussing the rage-fueled plot of the Netflix series – Pascal, 48, recounted his latest altercation on the road.

“Yesterday was a day. It was my fault,” he told Yeun. “I had three incidents, and they were all my fault.”

This one, in particular, was not without damage. “I cut someone, and I’m looking, and there’s a big globe of saliva — like the visual effects put it there, man — just dripping down the side of the passenger window. And my sister was like, ‘F—!’ »

Yeun, 39, stepped in to ask for details. “Damn s—. Like a glob on the driver’s side? He just threw a hard loogie at you?” He asked.

When Pascal confirmed that the other driver spat on him, he said the altercation didn’t anger him at all – unlike the characters in Beef. He actually did the opposite.

“I was shocked. It didn’t arouse any anger in me. It absolutely humiliated and shocked me, kinda scared me, disturbed me,” Pascal said, later adding, “They want me to I’m drinking in their saliva. It made me feel guilty. I was like, ‘God, people are going through s—.'”

Yeun said he was recently run over by another driver, which led to a conversation about the Netflix series.

“I was looking Beef with envy, in terms of how much it reflects such a living truth that can happen anywhere but happened to me yesterday in Los Angeles,” Pascal said. “Which made me admire your performance even more because I was like, ‘You pull it off. “”

The road rage series is a stark comparison to Pascal’s last The last of us – in which he plays a survivor of a global fungal epidemic.
