    The reason he looks this way is his character on General Hospital…
    As a dirty low life… Who terrifies a lot of people on the. Show!
    So if you want to see him watch General Hospital on ABC …

    Was at this event and also so James the night before and he is anything but “gross”. He is even more attractive in person and his teeth do not look “yellow” in person. He is extremely hansome and is really sweet to his fans. My daughter met him and he was very gracious to her. I think it says alot that his father just died less than a month ago and he is out greeting fans, taking pics with them, and supporting a movie that he worked hard on. He was very charming and interesting at the Q&A after the film and does not seem weird or stoned at all. That movie ,”Sal” was surprisingly good and he is growing as an director/writer with each flim he does. He is currently filming “Oz” so that has something to do with his physical look right now. He also doesn’t take drugs so for all of those that say he does, you are way off base. He is often tired b/c he doesn’t sleep much and he has those “sleepy” eyes that look that way.
