He even revealed why he was a bully.

But it turns out Christian Navarro’s character, Tony, didn’t represent what he was like at school in the slightest. 

In a recent interview, he explained that “I learned pretty quickly that if you bully, you don’t get bullied, so I was a bully in middle school”. 

Not gonna lie, we weren’t expecting that. 

He goes on to explain that when he got to high school he “cut all that nonsense out. People don’t like you. We all want to belong to a community, so I figured the best way to do that was to stop being a jerk”. 

Christian then had some sound advice for teens: “Be nice, start listening to people, be empathetic. It’s worked out for me”.
