Like many other people, I like to read stories about perseverance. Here’s the short version of Mark Ruffalo’s story:
- He bartended for nearly a decade while trying to break into show business.
- He claims to have made 800 auditions in his lifetime before making it big.
- He was set to appear in “Signs”, but had to drop out when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
