The actor admitted that he was saved by having hit bottom before knowing mass fame. “I was lucky that it happened to me at the age of 29,” he explained. I thought I had ‘arrived’ when I did a Wendy’s commercial and called my dad and told him I was in a hotel with windows that opened. But moving to Los Angeles to perform in Alias It was like going back to high school: I wasn’t invited to parties, girls didn’t even look at me… I got really depressed. And the truth is that I did not get serious until The Hangover, when he was already 36 years old. So I went through all of that before fame affected my daily existence. All of that happened to me before.”
After the rehabilitation, there were years in which, according to what he said: “At least I could stand in front of my classmates and breathe and listen and speak.” By then she returned to the ring with shares in the series nip tuck and the failed Kitchen Confidential based on a book anthony bourdainin addition to The Wedding Breakers (2005) and All About Steve (2009), with Sandra Bullock. “I don’t know if I was satisfied creatively, but it was working. I was able to film and meet Sandra and work with her. And I was sober, and I realized that it was me. He told me that: ‘It’s me and I don’t have to force myself to be someone else, and even so these people want to work with me. What the hell is going on?’ I was rediscovering myself and it was wonderful.”
