“When all that stuff happened, you know, publicly, it felt disorienting and unfair," Glen told the magazine. "But what I’m realizing is that’s just a part of this gig now.”

But when it comes to navigating new relationships, the Top Gun: Maverick star said now he knows he'll need someone on his team who can adapt to the "uncertainty" and chaos that comes with working in the industry.

"And on a romantic level, you gotta find a teammate who is down for that adventure, down for that uncertainty, down for that thing. It’s a lot to deal with."

"Honestly, I really try to be a great partner. When I love, I love hard. I also understand that the speed and uncertainty of my life is a very hard thing to put up with.”

“It’s a rom-com," Sydney told Variety. “That’s what people want! Glen and I don’t really care. We have so much fun together, and we respect each other so much; he’s such a hard worker, and I’m a hard worker."

"We’re excited for the press tour, and I literally just left ADR with him. We talk all the time like, ‘That’s really funny.’”
