Having a large segment of the population practically worship your every move is probably so annoying. Constant adulation? Something legit to brag about to your hometown friends? Droves of screaming admirers everywhere you go? Sounds downright dreadful. For Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan, perhaps the most difficult aspect of the post-Negan lifestyle of fame is suddenly being presented with detailed breakdowns of fans' bedroom desires.
"It's mostly women who I get really weird fan mail from," Morgan told Howard Stern during a very Howard Stern-esque chat Tuesday. A chunk of this mail, Morgan added, includes fantasies of the sexual variety. "Like, they just want to be, I don't know, gagged and tied up and beat on a little bit," Morgan explained.
But not everyone who's seen Negan in action shares these feelings. As Morgan revealed to Entertainment Weekly back in October, some fans strike a more, um, unforgiving tone when discussing his performance. Once, while out doing motorcycle stuff with Dead co-star Norman Reedus, Morgan was approached by a peeved viewer who insisted on learning his home address.
"This lady is at our car, and she's probably 80 years old, and she comes up and just flips me off and says 'Fuck you!' and Norman falls off his chair, laughing, and I'm like 'Whoa! Whoa!'" Morgan recalled. Interestingly enough, this impassioned fan encounter took place before anyone even knew who the hell Negan offed in this season's divisive premiere.
