Glen Powell Hit Man

At the premiere of his new film Hit Man in Austin, Glen Powell’s parents took to the red carpet to troll their celebrity son. Cyndy and Glen Powell Sr. showed up at the Paramount with signs that read, “Stop trying to make Glen Powell happen” and “It’s never gonna happen.”

Why Glen Powell Was Trolled By His Parents With Mean Signs At His Austin Film Premiere

Powell says his parents came up with the prank after seeing mean tweets about him. “I don’t read tweets, but my parents read tweets,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “So if you’re talking sh*t, know that my parents are reading those tweets,”

The following evening, the Austin Film Society honored the Top Gun star. He was inducted into the Texas Film Hall of Fame at their Toast to Texas Film event.

When the CMT Awards came to Austin, we included a question about Powell in our Texas This or That interviews. When asked to choose between Matthew McConaughey or Glen Powell we thought for sure there would be a struggle – especially with the younger interviewees. We were wrong. Absolutely everyone chose MM. Honestly, we were disappointed. Watch the video here.

Powell’s newest film Hit Man appears in select theaters on May 24 before hitting Netflix on June 7.
