Mom's Note To NFL Player During Flight Goes Viral For The Right Reason

By Mustafa Gatollari

When I was a kid, my heroes meant everything to me. I thought Clint Eastwood was the coolest man on the planet so I'd sneak away to the bathroom and smoke cigarettes. When I learned that the actor, in fact, didn't smoke cigarettes, but his characters did, I kicked the habit immediately. 

If I found out an actor had a certain method or way of working, I'd try to copy that in whatever school production I was apart of. When Arnold Schwarzenegger talked about the importance of cardio in his Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding, I made sure that I'd get some in after every lifting session. Now, if only I followed his diet advice...

But anyway, the people we look up to usually have a huge impact on us, and there are few things more disappointing than finding out the people we idolized are actually closet losers.
