Tyler Posey’s sharing the deets on his firsts – and we’re psyched to get to know him a little better! After all, the adorable little kid who played Jennifer Lopez’s son in Maid In Manhattan has grown up to be a total hottie — and we’re all crushing on the former Teen Wolf star!
The 26-year-old actor, whose movie Truth Or Dare is out in theaters now, revealed where he spent his first major paycheck! He wasn’t allowed to start using them until he was 12. And, he shared to CNBC Make It, this is what he did then:
“I would walk in there, and there was basically this wall of guitars, and there was this one that stuck out. It was this beautiful red, Thinline ’72 Telecaster, a Fender, and it was a semi-hollow.
It was my first real electric guitar, and since then it’s been through the ringer. I’ve dropped it a bunch of times, it’s got all these cracks in it, but it looks so cool and vintage and it’s like falling apart now.”
Tyler also opened up to Teen Vogue about some of his most memorable firsts. Check it out:
First Celeb Crush – “I used to be a big fan of Nickelodeon. There was one where Cameron Diaz was doing a burping competition or something and she belched and for some reaseon at, like, six years old, I thought it was really hot.”
First Motorcycle – “I had to learn how to ride a motorcycle and get my license because my character in Teen Wolf got a motorcycle and legally in order for me to ride it on set, I had to get my license. [My first was a] Triumph Bonneville T100 and I completely customized it and it looks completely different now.”
First Tattoo – “When I was a kid, I’d always been into tattoos and punk rock and always wanted to cover my body in tattoos. I was like, ‘I’m gonna grab a needle and cut a pen in half and dip the needle in ink and stab myself. Let me sterilize this needle..’ So I grabbed the lighter and I burnt the needle and you know when you burn a needle or metal there’s soot? There’s a little black dot on my elbow that I got when I was 12. And that’s metal soot, it’s not ink. That was my first one.”
First Time To Get In Trouble – “My little brother and I, when we were younger, there was one time we were throwing shoes at each other like as a joke. I grabbed one, I threw it over my head… and I heard this smack and then just screaming. And I just see a trail of blood and I was like, (gasps). And I just hid behind the couch. My mom screamed my name, and then she very calmly brought me into the bathroom where my little brother was and she was like, ‘I just want you to look what you did.’ And I looked and my little brother had tissues up to his nose and the trash can in the bathroom was just filled with bloody tissues. And I think that was the last time I ever hurt my little brother. Scary.”
First Lesson From Dad – “He’s the greatest dude in the world. But when my brother and I would mess up when we were younger he would compare us to Beavis and Butthead all the time, and be like, ‘Come one guys, you don’t wanna be like Beavis and Butthead.’ And to this day I kinda wanna be like Beavis and Butthead.
First Concert – “My dad brought me to a Peter, Paul and Mary concert. I was five years old, and the only song I knew was Puff The Magic Dragon. I remember the microphones went out at one point and so they were singing Puff The Magic Dragon, like shouting it to the audience, and then the whole audience came in and started singing together. It was really cool.”
First Time To Get Starstruck – “I was about seven years old and it was the first movie I had done and it was called Men Of Honor. I was in one scene and it was Robert De Niro and I’m this little seven-year-old kid and I’m supposed to pour sand on his hand cos he’s drunk on the beach and I, like, wake him up. He was the most professional person I have basically ever worked with to this day.”
