"Friday Night Lights" Star Taylor Kitsch Reveals Homeless Past

Jim Spellman/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- How things have changed.

Taylor Kitsch may be starring in the upcoming film Lone Survivor but life wasn’t always about movie premieres and red carpets. The former Friday Night Lights star, 32, revealed in a new interview with Glamour magazine that he started his career as a poorly-paid Abercrombie model.

“That was kind of a weekend thing I did to stay afloat -- 10, 20 bucks here or there. I was actually homeless at the time,” he said. “I was homeless in New York for a while, and then I went to L.A., where I lived in my car.”

However, with the success of projects like Friday Night Lights, Kitsch became a household name, and a bit of a heartthrob, best known for his long hair.

“I started growing it when I was 20, playing junior hockey,” he said. “The first time I cut it was for Battleship. I’d had it long for 11 years. Now it’s kind of got a life of its own.”
