In June 1982, at the age of 7, actor Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) remembers his mother would drop him off at a movie theater in San Antonio to spend the afternoon there while she studied for her Ph.D. It was two years before the Motion Picture Association (MPA) added the PG-13 rating to its rating system.
“I was able to get away with a lot,” Pascal, 47, told MySA during a recent interview to talk about his latest film, the action-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. “I was able to say, ‘It’s PG, mom! Steven Spielberg’s name is on it!’”
