How close can I get before a 50mm lens distorts a model's features?

I was wondering what the ideal distance I should be from my model for shooting portraits with a 50mm lens.

I know if I am too far away, the background is not blurry, but if I am too close, the features are distorted.

I was wondering what the "closest" I can get to my model before the face becomes distorted? Thanks!
