Well, the Hulk was once young. Mark Ruffalo had many amazing roles throughout the years. But many fans link him to his Marvel character, The Hulk. And rightfully so. Ruffalo took over the job as Hulk from Edward Norton and played it to perfection in the first Avengers movie. Since then, Mark is The Hulk. But have you seen any pictures of young Mark Ruffalo? Do you know that he used to wear braces? Well, we are here to find out.
Born in 1967, Ruffalo is an American actor and producer. He started his acting career in the early 1990s. He got his first big hit with This is Our Youth, a play by Kenneth Lonergan. He then appeared in the drama movie You Can Count on Me.
In the 2000s, Mark appeared in a couple of romantic comedies, including 13 going on 30, Just Like Heaven, and more. And by the end of the 2000s, he started appearing in thrillers like Zodiac, Shutter Island, and many more.
For his role in Awake and Sing! on Broadway, he received a Tony Award nomination. But before Avengers, he had only nationwide stardom. Hulk helped him gain international recognition. Ruffalo appeared as Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the 2012 Avengers movie.
Some of his other outstanding projects include The Kids Are All Right, Spotlight, The Normal Heart, and the Now You See Me movie franchise.
He supports several different causes. For example, he supports the LGBT community. He has given interviews to We Are Change, a 9/11 truth group in 2007 and 2011. And then in 2015, he supported Education is Not a Crime campaign.
During the 2016 presidential elections, he supported Bernie Sanders. Years later, he called for an economic revolution saying that “capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future”.
He got married to Sunrise Coigney in 2000 and they have three children together. He got diagnosed with a vestibular schwannoma, a type of brain tumor following his work on the movie The Last Castle. The surgery to remove the tumor resulted in partial facial paralysis and affected his hearing. He remains deaf in his left ear.
Now let’s take a look at a couple of photos of young Mark Ruffalo.
