When I was on `American Dreams,` I was still bartending. Every Sunday night it came on, I was bartending in downtown L.A., and my manager and agent would come in and watch the TV. You`d get these drunk guys that are like: `Oh, let me guess; you`re gonna be an actor, huh? Good luck, buddy!` They want to knock you down so badly, and I`m like, `Idiot, look to your left; I`m on the screen!`
I was so broke, I didn`t even have car insurance at the time. My mom was forging my car insurance so I could get this job. I was like, `I am so going to jail.` You do what you gotta do.
