Topher Grace Reveals Why He Started Going by a Shortened Version of His Name

Topher Grace is revealing how he got his nickname!

In a new interview with Anthony Anderson for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the pair discussed when Topher stopped going by his full name, Christopher, and started using a shortened version of his name.

“I was Chris when I was a kid… People would call me Chris and I wanted to go by Christopher,” he explained. “My mom’s name is Patricia and people only called her Pat so she always said ‘You should go by your full name.’”

“So I’d say ‘Hi, my name’s Christopher‘ and they’d say ‘Nice to meet you Chris,’” he said, taking a pause. “And I’d say ‘-Topher.’”

He continued, “And then when I went to boarding school I said it as a joke that I might use it as my name and the hottest girl at school said, ‘That’s cute!’”

“So that was it, it wasn’t like a Hollywood thing or anything,” he added.

Topher recently revealed that he once made a moviegoer cry – find out why!

Topher Grace Once Made a Moviegoer Cry - Find Out What Happened!

Topher Grace is looking back at his 2010 movie Predators!

In a new interview with PeopleTV, the 42-year-old actor recalled the time that he made a moviegoer cry while at a local screening of his sci-fi movie.

In Predators, Topher plays a serial killer, and in one scene, he gets his foot stuck in a trap and starts to cry.

While watching the movie, one moviegoer who was sitting behind Topher wasn’t exactly thrilled with his performance.

“My character starts crying because his foot’s in a trap and you kind of have to feel for him and then it’s revealed that he’s a psycho,” Topher shared in his interview. “And so, I start crying. It was a hard day at work for me to like, get there, and also you’re playing two different characters, kind of.”

“So, I’m watching this film in the movie theater and this guy goes, ‘This guy’s crying like a little bitch!’” Topher recalled. “I turn around and I go, ‘What’s up now?’ And this guy’s mind exploded. He was like, ‘Oh my God! You’re here and you’re on the [screen].”

He added, “I think it was the most scared I’d ever seen someone in a movie theater because he, like, realized I was [the movie] serial killer and then I turned around in front of him…He started crying, it was great.”

Earlier this week, Topher shared some very exciting personal news!

The Jimmy Kimmel vs. Matt Damon feud continues!

Topher Grace stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday (April 5) to discuss his new ABC show Home Economics and shared a story about seeing Jimmy at Matt Damon‘s house during a baby shower.

“Like I said, he’s your enemy, but you happened to be at a baby shower that we went to,” Topher said.

“I was told it was a going away party,” Jimmy joked.

“We had a mutual friend who was having their baby shower at Matt‘s house and I was sitting next to you and you told me this joke and I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever heard,” Topher explained.

He continued, “Matt gave a speech where he said ‘We’re so glad you were born’ to this baby. We were sitting there listening to this, ‘It’s really a wonderful day you were born.’ And you just learned over to me and you said, ‘He’s got to work Bourne into everything.’”

Jimmy laughed and added, “He’s very needy and he’s very desperate and I think he’s working as an extra on Marvel movies now.”

Matt and Jimmy also referenced their infamous “feud” in an episode of Jimmy‘s show this past summer. Check out the clip!
