How Alexander Hodge Real-Life Relationship with Girlfriend Affects His Role in Insecure
Alexander Hodge is dating fellow actress Ava Luu, and their relationship seems as strong as ever!
The couple first went public with their romance in 2018, sharing plenty of adorable snaps of them with some friends.
However, Alexander once revealed that his relationship with Ava inspired his role in Insecure. Considering the series premiered in 2018, the couple had been together longer than we initially thought!
Although he decided to remain low-key about their relationship, Alexander didn’t diminish Ava’s role in helping him to stay in shape with quarantine workouts during the pandemic.
“I do 10 a.m. home HIIT workouts with my girlfriend,” Alexander told Page Six. “Sometimes we’ll go for runs or stair climbs. After that, I’ll usually do my own second thing, and my girlfriend will do her yoga separately,” he continued.
Alexander also revealed that he and Ava often went on 14-mile walks and two-hour bike rides to “spend some time outdoors.”
Unfortunately, fans noticed that Alexander had deleted all of the pictures with Ava except the one from 2018, when they celebrated a friend’s engagement. With this new revelation, many people suspect Alexander and Ava had broken up, although neither party has addressed the speculations.
Alexander Hodge on How His Relationship Affected His Role in Insecure
Earning mainstream recognition through the 2018 series Insecure, Alexander Hodge portrayed the role of Andrew Tan, the on-screen love interest of Yvonne Orji’s Molly.
Being someone who is in an actual interracial relationship, Alexander admitted that his relationship with Ava Luu helped him to understand “the black experience” better.
“I would say the biggest thing my real-life relationship allowed me to bring was a more grounded appreciation of black culture and the black community,” he shared in an interview.
“My real-life relationship definitely allowed me to sink into the character of Andrew more truthfully and see Molly for who she is entirely,” Alexander concluded.
