Moss-Bachrach added that he tries to support him and protect him when fans get too excited upon seeing him. He further added in the interview that when asked if the show has capitalized on the food culture,

I think the Bear is a small part of it. I don’t find The Bear to be like food porn or anything. I thought a lot of food looked pretty nasty in the first season, to be honest. I put more of that stuff on TikTok and Chef’s Table. I point my fingers at them.

He added that he has much interaction with people, and hearing those stories inspired him about the power of telling stories.
