Is it hard to wrap your head around your popularity? I cannot imagine going from being bullied as kid to having thousands and thousands of fans. How do you handle it all?

i LOVED being bullied as a kid because it taught me early on that it is absolutely fine to be a weirdo. In my head i thank the bullies everyday for giving me the life i get to lead now.

Hey! So this is an extremely random question which I'm not sure if you've answered before and I just missed it or something but I've noticed that in almost every episode of Criminal Minds Reid's watch is always on the outside of the sleeve when you're wearing long sleeved shirts and such. I'm not exactly up to date on watch wearing techniques but is that done on purpose or the watch is just slightly too big for your wrist or is that normal watch etiquette?
Also because I am slightly too obsessed with horror films what is your favorite horror movie?

i always made sure to wear his watch outside of his sleeve as an homage to a very eccentric friend of mine who recently passed away. the reason he wore his watch outside of his sleeve was to save time when he wanted to know the time. there are a few spencer reid traits i got from him.

it was a dream. we were born to be on screen together. like Jaffar and that parrot from Aladin... i think his name was Iago.

Before you are filming a scene for Criminal Minds, do you do anything that helps you get into character?

i think about his mom i think about maeve and i think about how badly he want's to make sure that no one has to ever go through what he went through with losing maeve.

Hi! Thanks for doing this AMA. Reid's had a lot of hairstyles while on Criminal Minds--which one was your favourite? What flavour of ice cream is your favourite?
Also, could you say hi to my sister, Hannah? She's a huge fan.

HI HANNAH! my favorite ice cream is butter pecan and my favorite reid hairstyle is also "the butter pecan"

Hi Matthew! I'm a big fan of you! What are you MOST thankful for when it comes to your career? Would you say that you are at the peak of your career?

all i have ever dreamed of was getting to entertain one stranger rather it was on a street corner or if it was on a screen. so i feel like i have been successful since the moment i told my first joke to a stranger in line at a hot dog stand when I was 5. that was when i peaked and it just feels like one gigantic peak i have been riding ever since.

Your glamour shots are EXTREMELY glamorous, where and why did you get them done?
MatthewGrayGubler83 karma2015-12-04 23:42:19 UTC
HAHAHAHAH thanks! i think you are referring to my red turtle neck ones. I made those about 6 years ago and the funniest thing is that people to this day still don't realize that i painstakingly went out of my way to create those myself as a joke. In the most recent killers video i directed I purposefully dressed the band in matching Red turtle necks as a subtle shout out to that. I consider it my cameo in the video
