Ben Was Raised To Be A Villain

Ben is a well-known actor in Hollywood who has played in many movies. 

But Ben is mainly seen playing a negative role in the movies. So in the interview with Jimmy Kimmel, he talked about it.

Ben said that people in almost every place are taught about freedom, hope, and liberty while growing up. 

He is an Australian, so an Australian he and other Australian natives didn’t grow up learning those things; instead, they are raised to go to jail, and from a very young age, they know about cops and robbers. 

Because of that, he mostly plays villain roles in his movies and enjoys them. He has also played a negative role in Captain Marvel's movies.

Ben Worked With Robert Di Niro 

Ben has worked with many actors in his acting career, and in all the movies he played in, he always gave his best.

Many might not know that Ben has also worked with one of the greatest actors Robert di Niro

He said that he and Di Niro are in The Killer. Despite being in the same film, he never got a chance to meet the legendary actor. 

He and Di Niro had no scenes together, so he never saw him. 

While he was signing up for the movie, he asked the director to let him act like the hairdresser of Di Niro when Di Niro was on set for his scenes. 

The director agreed with that, but he didn’t become a hairdresser. 

He thought that what if he had to cut the hair of the great actor and because of that he didn’t dare to pretend to be the hairdresser of Di Niro.

Ben Had To Wash The Dishes

Ben started working in Hollywood when he was young and is now one of the most famous Australian actors. 

He is successfully played many roles and is living a well-settled life. 

But like many other actors, Ben’s life was also full of ups and downs. In the 2000s, the industry downturn almost ended Ben’s acting career. 

He thought that was the dead end of his career. He didn’t have any jobs and had no money with him. 

So he had to live in a very cheap apartment in Bondi. The apartment was in a place where it was always crowded, the bus noises all day and night. 

He had struggled a lot and even had to wash dishes to survive. He worked in a restaurant and worked as a kitchen hand. 

Luckily he again got a chance to restart his career and started getting roles. 

He is now so successful that no one would know that the actor’s career was on the verge of ending years back.

Ben’s Rough Childhood

Ben’s mom, Carole, and dad, Federick Auther, both were from a medical background as his mom was a nurse and his dad was a medical researcher. 

Despite coming from such a family, Ben described his childhood as messy and rough. 

But it was not because of his parents. He was the reason behind his rough childhood. 

He opened up that he was suspended from school when he was 13 years old, and the cause of getting kicked off as he set his school on fire. 

Not only that, he started taking drugs and consuming alcohol by the time when he was 19 years old.

His drug abuse was so intense that his then-girlfriend Kate Fischer got concerned for him. 

He slowly overcame his drug addiction and drinking habit and is now sober. 

Also, he is now part of a charity that helps kids whose parents are dealing with drug abuse.
