As a little kid growing up in Hollywood, I was called 'a little crazy'. And now I guess I'm still that way.
I like to help the whales, the otters, and the dolphins. When I'm acting and I take a break, the first thing on my list is spending time by the sea.
I cheated a lot, because I just couldn't sit and do homework. I usually sat next to someone extremely smart.
On his life: What I would do in order to be popular was, I'd put myself on line and joke around and be funny, and I was always known as the crazy kid.
I hate speaking in front of a large audience. I don't know where it came from... but its just this gut-wrenching fear of slipping up and doing something horrible.
