IamA Son of an Oscar Winning Actor, AMA!
First one got taken down for lack of proof, have anonymously confirmed with the mods.
Hiya, Long time redditor, throwaway for this one. my parents are famous... it's weird. at least one is an accomplished actor, and I have grown up with the movie business and america's obsession with celebrity strangely permeating my life. I am avoiding details in regards to my parents, as I don't want to bring them specifically into this. I am not interested in being connected specifically to my parents, bragging about them, or making this about me. I am mostly interested in answering questions as to the reality of living under the scrutiny of tabloids/the strangeness of my life's circumstances, and the results thereof. (Ie. my first 'girlfriend' at 8 or 9 was really only interested in going to the Shrek premiere)
I am terrified of nepotism in my own artistic endeavors and have remained quite private and rarely associate with my parents because of it. This is part of why I am keeping my identity hidden, because I am not interested in using this to promote myself. I hope to one day do an AMA as myself, in regards to trying to create an artistic career in the shadow of my famous parents, but for now I think it is most interesting to remain anonymous, and provide answers as generally as possible.
I have mono, which is why I decided to do this, so I will be around all day, and will also be accepting recommendations of obscure films/games/television programs I might have yet to partake in to help me get through my lack of obligations.

Edit: Thanks a lot for the good questions and the overall friendliness. I was outed at one point, but you lovely people came to my defense and to the defense of the integrity of the thread. This has been an interesting day for me. I didn't have anything else to do today with the mono and all. I didn't find it particularly hard to answer almost all the questions I could. I'm going to sleep now... but I will check back in the morning if any of our Australian friends have good questions to be answered.
Good Job everyone who figured out who I was, but that wasn't that cool. Thanks for being cool everyone who was cool you guys are super cool.
Edit: I'm back today (Tuesday) and will look for some good questions towards the bottom. Don't think I'll be quite as active as I was yesterday... but I still have mono, and this has proven to be an interesting experience for me/all of you guys have been very receptive and respectful of what I wanted to do with this. So why not keep at it?
Edit: Questions keep trickling in and I still have mono. So I will check back in ever so often over the next day or two! Thanks for being cool
