Will Poulter's evil brows

Will Poulter doesn't feel like people stare at him when out, but often catches fans taking covert snaps of him.

The British actor is making waves in Hollywood thanks to starring roles in movies such as We're the Millers opposite Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis.

His burgeoning career means he's often recognised while out and about, but Will can never tell if people realise who he is or are just looking at his bushy brows.

"I don't know, I don't get that sense that everyone's looking at me," Will told Radio 1's Breakfast Show.

"It's difficult to tell whether people are looking at you because they recognise you from your work or just because you're 6ft 3in and have the eyebrows of Satan. It's difficult to distinguish between the two."

In an age where stars are snapped on people's phones, 21-year-old Will admits it's hard to escape the glare of the public's spotlight.

Instead of being asked to pose with fans, Will is often caught off guard by a roving camera phone.

"What's hilarious is people taking photos and they think you don't know. It's the funniest thing I've ever seen," he laughed.

"Like taking a picture of their mate for example but about three foot wide of their face - and the flash is on half the time!"

Will's latest role is Gally in The Maze Runner.

The dystopian tale focuses on a community of boys trapped in a giant maze. Each of their memories has been wiped but they need to work together to free themselves from the prison they're trapped in.

"I auditioned for it having not read the script so I just got sides, like a few pieces of paper with lines on them for a part called Gally - and I didn't know who Gally was, or you know what his deal was, anything about him at all before I auditioned for him.

"That was quite tricky. And then I read it and I was like, 'Oh, I'm the douche bag'," he added.
