>>816 His intellect is always been in the tops, there's no doubt there. But I do think he's always had an overinflated sense of self. I don't know the causes of it, whether it was part of his upbringing or whether it was inherent and exacerbated by his school environment. So I agree with your point in the earlier replies that his schooling isn't solely responsible for him being entitled, self centered and narrow minded (really hope I didn't misunderstand you there).
This whole thing has made me wonder whether he truly wants to be a famous actor or whether he wants to be a famous celebrity.
