This 25 year old actor has been described as quite an interesting person. He was once quoted to have said; “I don’t party, I don’t drink and I don’t do drugs…Parties don’t thrill me. I like sitting at home with a tub of Chunky Monkey Ice Cream watching “Big Brother” of “Friends”. This is the kind of unlike many other Hollywood actors.
