Dustin From 'Stranger Things' Has This Whole Fame Thing Backwards

And it's so lovable, obvs!

Gaten Matarazzo Of “Stranger Things” is just as sweet as chocolate pudding.

The actor, who portrays Dustin on Netflix’s sci-fi binge-worthy thriller, announced on Instagram that he’s establishing an adorable new rule for his fans.

From now on, whenever a fan stops him and asks for a selfie, he’ll ask them for one as well. Then he’ll post his pic of the fan and himself on his Instagram page “because they mean as much to me as I mean to them,” he wrote in the post:

Since the 13-year-old actor announced his precious policy on Aug. 23, he’s run into a fair share of fans:

I got stopped again. Thank you for taking a picture with me.

Dustin’s character is one of the most beloved on the show, and Gaten himself has been covered quite a bit since “Stranger Things” premiered July 15 on Netflix. Some lovable Dustin details include the fact that he’s a karaoke master, as evidenced by a “Les Miserables” performance that went viral.

He also has cleidocranial dysplasia, a condition that affects the development of bones and teeth. Gaten told The Daily Beast that the Duffer brothers, who created the show, decided to give Dustin the same condition.

“It’s a very rare condition and not many people have it around the world,”Gaten told the outlet. “When they wrote it into the show, I [started] getting a lot of messages and emails online from people who have the condition, saying that it really helps them come out of their shells a little bit.”

Just like Dustin, Gaten sure knows how to tug at our heartstrings.
