He shared that he was bullied as he was different from normal kids. 

But he didn't care about those things. 

He revealed that when people said any negative things about him, he used to ignore all those things and try as much to keep himself away from them.

Dad Got Colin Into Acting

In an interview, Colin opened up about the advice that he got from his dad. 

He said that he would have never gone to the acting line as he didn't like it. 

At first, he was didn't like acting, but later he thought of starting acting. 

His dad is a great actor, and he advised him to do what he wants, and if he wants to do acting, then he should. 

He would have left his acting career if he hadn't enjoyed doing that, but he continued doing acting because he enjoyed that. 

His dad told him that acting is not like a Mathematic problem because whatever he does in maths, he will always get the same answer every time but in the case of acting, it will never be the same. 

It will always take him to something new and it was the moment when he knew that he wanted to do different things. 

Ex-Girlfriend As An Interviewer

Colin was in an interview to Live with Kelly and Ryan show where he was attended by co-host Busy Philipps.

But now she, Colin and Colin's wife all are good friends. 

It was very awkward as Colin and her ex-girlfriend's families both goes on a vacation together. 

Colin opened that they were young at that time and didn't know much about relationships and that's why they broke up. 

Colin and Busy have been friends for more than 20 years

Saddened By Death 

Back in 2020, a medical worker named Breonna was shot to the death by Louisville police officers. 

She was shot during a raid on her apartment. 

The police officer was searching for two men who were involved in a drug case and they got into her apartment and shot her thinking that she was involved in that case because she was dating one of the men who was involved in drug selling. 

Nothing was found in her apartment and she was killed for no reason. 

Sadly the police officers who shot her were not punished by the judge. 

This news affected Colin and he was sad as she didn't get justice and he was also sorry for that.
