“Yellowstone” star Cole Hauser recently had some awesome comments about his character on the show.

As you all know, Hauser plays Rip on the hit Paramount Network show, and he’s John Dutton’s right hand man. He’s also a fan favorite because of his fierce loyalty to the ranch. The man behind the awesome character sees a lot of himself in him. (REVIEW: ‘Yellowstone‘ Season 2 Finale ‘Sins Of The Father’ Ends With Death And Hope For The Future)

“You know, I love Rip. You know, I mean, he’s me in many respects. He’s mean, he’s nasty, he’s kind, he’s a lover, he’s a fighter, you know? So, I think it’s kind of all my favorite parts about me,” Hauser said in a video for “Special Cowboy Moments.”

Is there anybody out there who doesn’t love Rip? If there is, I certainly haven’t met them yet. People love him, and that especially applies to women. Women absolutely love Rip. (EXCLUSIVE: Filming On Season 3 Of ‘Yellowstone‘ Has Officially Finished)
