'Begin Again's Mark Ruffalo Loves '13 Going on 30' Just as Much as You Do
Well, well, well, it seems as if The Hulk a.k.a. Bruce Banner a.k.a. Mark Ruffalo fancied himself a little AMA on reddit. The actor took to the Internet to answer some questions, and, more importantly, to spread awareness of support of Water Defense and his work towards keeping "our water clean and free of contamination." (Those that contribute to his Prizeo campaign can enter to win a trip to the set of Avengers 2.) And although The Hulk and saving our water is all well and good, every fan of Ruffalo probably only wanted to know the answer to one question, "Do you totally miss your days filming 13 Going on 30 and isn't it the best movie you've ever seen?"
Okay, well, no one asked that question (just me), but someone did ask him about his stance on the movie's iconic candy, Razzles. And of course he had the most perfect response:
They're a candy and a gum. What's not to like? They've got it all!
He knows the way to the heart of a 13 Going on 30 fan. To add even more delightful Jennifer Garner memories to the list, Ruffalo also revealed that he did in fact have to learn the dance moves to Michael Jackson's "Thriller."
And although we probably all wish that the AMA was solely about one of his best rom-com roles ever, he did touch on a few more subjects. Check out what else we learned about the actor:
He has some fond Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind memories.
Dancing on the bed in my underwear with Kirsten Dunst was a hilarious improvised moment. That, and getting beat up by Tom Wilkinson's wife.
He used to be teased about his last name.
I was teased relentlessly for having a name that rhymed with "Buffalo" but at some point I turned that in my favor. I just started saying "Ruffalo" like "Buffalo" and at that point, I sort of took it back from the people who used it to make fun of me because I'd introduce it myself - they'd say "What's your name" and I'd say "Ruffalo, like Buffalo." And then my friends started calling me "Ruff" and that's been my nickname since then.
He has pet rabbits.
One of them is named Blackjack.
He's a cool dad.
I was just in the park playing Zombie tag with my kids.
He's besties with Robert Downey Jr.
We've known each other since before Zodiac. And he's kind of like an older brother that I wish I had. He sort of looks out for me, and I remember when the role came up in the movie, I reached out to him, I was nervous about it, I said "I don't know if I can do this" and he said "It's alright buddy, I gotcha."
His favorite Pokemon is Squirtle.
For some reason that was the first Pokemon I got on my Gameboy, when I was playing it - they would give you 2 different ones, Charmander or Squirtle, and I started with Squirtle, so I have a warm place in my heart for Squirtle.
And, finally, he freakin' loves tea.
TEA. I LOVE TEA TIME. IT'S SO CIVILIZED.
And because we know you're still thinking about 13 Going on 30...
