“My father doesn’t get to come to these events with me much. It’s great to have Pops in the house,” Michael said of his father, after whom he was named. “One job led to another. I started paying my dues. I never thought that I would be where I am today when I started out. There were some tough years when I first moved back to Los Angeles when I was 19 or 20. I could barely pay the rent. I just wanted to have enough work to be financially stable. I spent four to five years just trying to survive by acting.”

FYI: Michael is wearing a Prada suit and Christian Louboutin shoes. The event was sponsored by Belvedere Vodka.
