|First stage kiss:|| Actually, it was on screen, and it was in "Jumanji." I was 13, never been kissed, and I was so nervous that my first kiss was going to be on camera... Very depressing.

He's now married with a child.

Hairspray: Forgot where I was, who I was and what I was doing during "Nicest Kids in Town" — it was one of those out of body "Who am I?" experiences...
