I'm not sure how much I believe him or the paper.
In similar suit to Macaulay Culkin, he got out when the getting was good at the onset of adult life. So many kid stars are washed up or become God only knows what by age 18.
I do have to say this, though, I am halfway wondering if he isn't a sociopath.
Maybe he didn't get out of childhood stardom so unscathed after all.
