Here’s what the 41-year-old Mr. Sunshine actor had to share:
On being happy with where he is in life: “I’ve certainly had a lot of experiences in my life where I was much too self-centered. I’d rather be me now than me at 20.”
On facing his fears and battles with addiction: “I suppose that’s what life is really about, and what I was ultimately brave enough to do. That and the knowledge that it’s an ongoing process. If something scares you, face it.”
On what he does in his downtime: “There was a time when I wasn’t working a lot. It ebbs and flows. Mostly I was just living my life and playing Fallout 3, a very fun game.”
FYI: Inside the puma costume is actor David Pressman, who plays the mascot at the ice arena where Matthew‘s Mr. Sunshine character works.
