'Stranger Things' Star Joe Keery Shares His '80s Jeans Woes: 'It's Like You're Wearing a Baseball Glove'

We all have workplace challenges, but Joe Keery's are a little unique.

The "Stranger Things" star visited "Late Night With Seth Meyers," where he had some stories to share about what it's like playing bat-wielding babysitter extraordinaire Steve Harrington. One of the struggles, it turns out, is the tight '80s jeans. Keery admitted he was not prepared for those.

"They don't tell you that when they cast you," the actor told Meyers, "about the jeans and how tight they will make them."

Since Meyers has spent some time in '80s jeans himself, he commiserated, drawing a comparison between them and corsets in the Jane Austen era. Keery didn't take it quite that far, but he did say his "Stranger Things" jeans had no stretch at all.

"It's like you're wearing a baseball glove," he said.

The two also got to cover his much-discussed hair, the weeks he spent training because he was told Steve would be a swimmer, and more. Watch the interview below.

"Stranger Things" Season 2 is available on Netflix now, and "Late Night With Seth Meyers" airs weeknights at 12:35 a.m. ET/PT on NBC.
