Jason Sudeikis - Jason Sudeikis was a cheeky child
Jason Sudeikis has revealed he wasn't interested in acting as a child and was instead preoccupied with playing and being a ''smart-ass''.
Jason Sudeikis was a ''child smart-ass''.
The 'We're the Millers' star had a very normal upbringing in Kansas and although he has now found fame as a comedic actor, he admits he wasn't particularly drawn to the bright lights of Hollywood when he was younger.
He said: ''I was never a child actor. I was a child smart-ass.''
Growing up in a suburban neighbourhood, the 37-year-old actor had a rather uneventful childhood - only ever getting into trouble for playing basketball too loudly.
He explained: ''I was raised in the suburbs of Kansas City - minivans, khakis and cul-de-sacs, wearing polos and tucking them in. we were allowed to play hide-and-seek until the wee hours and there was no crime to speak of. I got into trouble for doing, like, nothing. It shows you're living in a safe environment when the cops come to your house at 10.30 on a Saturday to tell you to stop playing basketball. Some neighbour complained about the sound of the ball bouncing.''
Although he didn't get up to much mischief, the funnyman - who is engaged to 'Deadfall' beauty Olivia Wilde - was born without a sense of smell, which led to some scary life-threatening moments.
He said: ''Our laundry was downstairs and my dad came down to the basement where I lived during my last few years of high school. [He said] 'Jeez, Jason, what's going on?' The sump-pump had broken. It was leaking methane gas and I had no idea. I had headaches for two days afterwards.''
