Meanwhile, the ’21 Jump Street ‘star previously said that he is grateful to his friends and family for allowing him to speak openly about his own vulnerabilities.
He said: “As I have grown as a human being and have had the emotional maturity and confidence to become a filmmaker, [I’ve reflected on] how I learned to communicate as a man and why that was problematic.
“They taught me and maybe they taught us culturally at that time, if you are a man and you express your feelings or express that something hurts you, then they should make fun of you.
“And that kind of repression leads to anger, and anger leads to bad behavior.”
