Taika Waititi Finds Being Around People ‘Really Draining’

Taika Waititi is considered one of the film world's extroverts,

but in a recent interview he's admitted that he finds being around people 'really draining'.

The renowned director is known for keeping his sets lively,

with Cate Blanchett once memorably describing the set of Thor

Ragnarok as 'one long Mardi Gras parade'. However, in a chat with Wired it turned

out that the New Zealander can actually struggle in company.

"It’s just really draining," the 46-year-old said.

"With whoever – it doesn’t matter who. Even my family.

But definitely people I’ve never met before."
