“I feel bad that you have to transcribe all this,” said the 33-year-old Criminal Minds regular.

Matthew Gray Gubler didn’t want to show me his paintings. Since his own house was being renovated, the Criminal Minds actor was staying at his friend’s house in Los Angeles; I asked if he’d been painting there.
“Nothing good, to be honest,” he said, sitting in the shade in slippers. “I have nothing — nothing worth showing here, anyway, for sure.”
“Can I see it anyway?” I said.
“It’s so bad. I can’t,” he said. “Because I always worry about, not worry, but my nightmare is making someone see something in the flesh, and then making them, like, they feel some responsibility to pretend to like it. Like, ‘Ohh.’ Like you would be like this: I’d be like, ‘Oh, here!’ and you’d go like, ‘Oh, that’s great.’ On the internet, it’s this safe space where I can put it up and people can click on it or not. I don’t have to be in the same room as them pretending to like it, so I very rarely show people things, and I’ve made the mistake — like, some people misinterpret my style of painting as offensive, and I’ve had instances where I’ve painted beautiful portraits for, like, a girlfriend or someone, and they’re just like, they look at it with a grimace and they’re like, ‘This is terrible. I don’t look like this, and you’re awful, and you must hate me.’ And I’m crushed by it, so I kind of am weird about being in the room when it’s shown.”
Hello, because I don’t know any of them two, this is all I can tell you: they are friends since a long time ago. But after filming this year a movie in which both act (“Life after Beth" directed by Aubrey’s boyfriend, Jeff Baena), they have shared more time together and coincided in several events. The end.
Matthew Gray Gubler knows every new season of “Criminal Minds” means more than an acting job for him.
The CBS show’s Dr. Spencer Reid also has gotten to direct at least one episode — and usually two — for the past several years. His latest turn for dual duty comes Wednesday (Nov. 6) with “Gatekeeper,” as the Behavioral Analysis Unit searches for a new Boston strangler who takes a memento from each victim.
"This is my sixth time," the friendly Gubler tells Zap2it of directing the series. "It’s what brought me to Los Angeles originally, and what I went to school for, so it’s great to have the opportunity to do it on the show that I’m on.
Matthew Gray Gubler has directed six episodes of Criminal Minds, but there is still a first time for everything.
"This one is probably the most grounded of any of the ones I’ve directed," Gubler, who plays Reid, tells TVGuide.com of Wednesday’s episode. "It’s a little more realistic. I was like, ‘Wow, there’s nothing insane in this episode!’ So I had to bring the insanity a little bit."
