“I was shocked the day I went to the doctor’s office as a child and I found out that I had normal organs and a normal skeleton,” he recalled, “because I was certain I was from another planet.”
The “National Treasure” star also shared that he found it difficult to connect with people growing up and pursued a career in the arts to better do so.
“I had difficulties connecting with people,” he continued. “When I saw David Bowie in ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth,’ I realized I needed to do something, so I became an actor.”
