The onetime MTV VJ, rapper and “Scary Movie” veteran isn’t accustomed to Oscar winners slapping him on the back. And he’s not comfortable with it quite yet: “It can be gone as soon as it comes.”

“It wasn’t about the money,” says Simon Rex on accepting the role in ‘Red Rocket’ (out December 10). “I knew I wanted to work with Sean Baker. I was in no position to turn this down.” Loewe jacket, price upon request, Loewe.com, vintage Levi’s jacket, $250, RaggedyThreads.com, APC jeans, $225, APC-US.com, boots by Ranch Road Boots, $498, RanchRoadBoots.com.
