Mark Ruffalo Is better know as playing the hulk in the avengers, but to those devoted fans, they would know of him in such films as the kids are alright, in the cut, the normal heart, and many other films. In interviews he has said that he auditioned over 200 times before landing a solid role. He has overcome so many things like a failed audition, the stress of landing a movie role, and brain tumor.
Ruffalo was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma , a type of brain tumor , and had surgery; the tumor was benign, but resulted in a period of partial facial paralysis. He recovered from the paralysis; however, he became deaf in his left ear as a result of the tumor. On top of all that he had to go through the grieving process of losing his brother.
How anyone overcomes these types of events, really describe the type of person we are, like down to the core.
