We still don't really know exactly how Brad Renfro died, but we didn't really know how he lived either. Apparently he had a kid, and he stars in Bret Easton Ellis' The Informers with Winona Ryder, which is set to come out later this year. None of that is listed on his MySpace profile though. But the profile still gives some insight as to what his personality was like off-camera. (He's kinda funny. Under "Who I want to meet" he lists "your mom.") This video, also from MySpace, shows Brad hanging out with some girls, drinking, joking around, and watching football. It's eerily reminiscent of the Larry Clark movie Bully he starred in. He looks really different from the last time we saw him in something and it's really hard to believe he was only 25.
Did you watch it? It's kind of a reason to stay off drugs, right? At least for vanity's sake. I mean, he doesn't look so bad there, it's just really different from what he looked like a few years before. But he seems like he would've been fun to hang out with, you know, despite — or perhaps because of? — the supposed drug abuse. Check out this picture from his MySpace profle:
The caption he wrote beneath it: "My Dick." Ha!
And here's another video [scroll down], that's actually kind of weird. He's at a self-serve car wash, hosing down a car while his arm is in a sling, all the while Christina Aguilera's cover of "Car Wash" is playing.
And while this doesn't exactly tell us who Brad was as a person, it does kinda serve to humanize him.
