“To a certain degree you hear them say that and you’re like wow, that’s like I have to get up and go to the gym, I have to get up and go to work… To a certain degree it’s a humbling experience because you’re like this can’t mean that much.
“Seeing how the world has taken us on, I realized tha they anticipated something great and I think to a kid is like waiting for a Christmas to come and when I found out their anticipation with the movie it means a lot,” he said as he broke down to tears.
