At auditions, casting directors have said I’m not nerdy looking enough or I’m not handsome enough. And on IMDb, it’s crazy! People have made comments about me that are really, really rude. It was difficult to shrug it off… But now I realize that people find flaws even in the most gorgeous people—and no one should ever read comments about themselves on IMDb. I try not to think about my “look,” because unless I want to spend a lot of money and get plastic surgery I’m stuck with it.
