The Hulk just won an Emmy for his performance in the miniseries I Know This Much is True. His acceptance speech was very moving and calling for unity. Mark is very famous for his role in The Marvel Universe but there are many things we still don't know about him. Keep reading to find out more!
We loved seeing him sitting next to his wife at their home. This year the Emmys felt very intimate, seeing all the celebrities in their environment, with their loved ones.
It even seemed that they felt more open to give their opinion and react.
They weren't so much in the spotlight.
The interaction that the pandemic has generated with the lockdown, has made the audience get closer to those figures called stars. The term itself reflects how unattainable they are to the public.
But now, with all the live-streaming, all the Instagram activity and such we're felling closer to them, we can actually relate with their real selves.
That's why we want to tell you 5 things about Mark Ruffalo that you may not know. So you get to know him a little better.
1. He used to have Dyslexia. Mark had trouble reading texts when he was a kid. It was a big struggle for him, but he overcame it obviously, how else could he memorize all those lines for the movies.
2. The 52-year-old famous actor went to 800 auditions before reaching for success. A lot!
We know him mostly for his role as Hulk in the Marvel Universe, but he has a big resume full of great movies including The Kids are Alright. Mark got an Oscar nomination as best supporting actor for that role in 2010.
3. Ruffalo worked as a Bartender for 10 years. It's very common that actors and actresses find this kind of jobs while trying to get their first hit in the entertainment industry.
Probably because of all those social skills you've got have to waitress or bartend. And of course the flexible shifts to attend to auditions.
4. The Hulk actor is deaf from one ear. When the actor was giving his first steps into success he was diagnosed with a brain tumor that turned to be benign. Still, it had to be removed and losing hearing from one ear was a sequel of this.
5. He was nominated for the same Academy Award three times. And won non of them as best supporting actor.
Good news is he had many other awards and recognitions throughout his career.
Like the Emmy he just won for his outstanding leading role in the miniseries I Know This Much is True.
