Rumors have surfaced on Reddit suggesting an unnamed actor has missed out on major film roles due to struggles with social anxiety, particularly regarding phone communications. The Redditors have speculated that the actor in question might be Logan Lerman, known for his roles in the Percy Jackson series and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

According to these unconfirmed reports, the actor allegedly finds it challenging to handle phone calls and has used excuses such as being out of the country to avoid them, preferring email correspondence instead. Additionally, it is claimed that during video calls, the actor reports technical issues or inappropriate attire due to laundry as reasons for keeping the camera off.

The Reddit discussions have brought various reactions from the public. One user expressed confusion about the situation, stating, “I don’t understand how actors can be this shy but manage to get in front of a camera and perform. From what I understand, quite a few famous actors are really, cripplingly, shy.

Further stirring the conversation, another user reflected on Lerman’s film roles, commenting, “Damn…so he really dived into the role in Perks of Being a Wallflower, huh? Role of a lifetime.” The shared sympathies show a softer side of the community, with one user adding, “As if I couldn’t love this man more pls.

While these claims remain unconfirmed and representatives for Lerman have yet to respond, the story highlights a potentially overlooked aspect of how anxiety can impact professional activities, even among public figures. The situation also sheds light on the broader topic of mental health in high-pressure environments such as Hollywood.

Lerman began his acting career at a young age, appearing in commercials in the late 1990s. He quickly transitioned to film, making his feature debut in 2000’s The Patriot, where he played the youngest son of Mel Gibson’s character. Lerman gained further recognition as a child actor in films like What Women Want and Riding in Cars with Boys.

Lerman’s breakthrough came with his role as the title character in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010) and its sequel. These films, based on Rick Riordan’s popular book series, catapulted him into the spotlight and established him as a leading young actor.

He went on to deliver critically acclaimed performances in The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) and Fury (2014), where he starred alongside Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf. More recently, Lerman has been seen in the Amazon thriller series Hunters (2020), playing a young man who joins a group of Nazi hunters in 1970s America.

Adding to his personal milestones, Logan Lerman is officially off the market following his engagement to Analuisa Corrigan. He proposed to his longtime girlfriend in November 2023 after dating for over three years. The pair were first linked in January 2020, but only made their red carpet debut in August 2022 at the premiere of Bullet Train.
