Speaking of his upcoming movie, specifically about Pennywise itself, he made a bold claim saying that he believes that IT is giving clowns a bad reputation at the moment and jokingly offered a formal apology to all professional clowns. Read what he said below:

“Our movie is kind of giving clowns a bad rep right now, I just want to give a formal apology to all clowns.”

He then went on to explain why Pennywise is scarier that the Stranger Things monster, giving a very good reason for his opinion. Read below:

“The Demogorgon you could kill, for real, but Pennywise can shapeshift into anything and is kind of immortal in a sense, I think that’s why he’s scarier because he’s more of a being.”
