Brett Goldstein x Mr Porter, November 2021.

'Ted Lasso' breakout star Brett Goldstein models new season looks from Acne, Dries Van Noten, Tom Ford, and more in this new editorial for Mr Porter - as photographed by Matt Martin, and styled by Mac Huelster.

On the success of 'Ted Lasso', Goldstein says: "It felt special while we were making it, but you never know if it will connect with people. But I think [its success] says a lot about the state of the world. Part of the mission for the show is that public discourse was getting fucking ugly and it was becoming quite normal, weirdly normalised, very quickly that people being mean to each other publicly was fine. There were no manners, no one was polite, no one was thoughtful. It was just: who’s the meanest?"

On Roy Kent: "Roy is this cauldron of feeling and always has been, but he’s repressed it all, which I could certainly relate to. I have that theory of why his voice is [so strained] like that – because he’s holding it all in."

On the importance of opening up: "It’s a huge, huge thing. Look, I say this as someone who still struggles with being open and vulnerable and all that, I 100 per cent believe in it. I do think that not being able to tell your truth and be vulnerable is very damaging because everyone’s weird and everyone has embarrassing things. If you have to keep everything in, you go insane."
