John comes from a middle class family of a postman and a waiter. In his youth he was quite slim and was crazy from football. In fact, the future movie star got two passions. He was crazy from football and from theater. When he graduated from school, John felt, acting is much closer to him. So he entered drama school and started to train as an actor professionally.
