The English actor and filmmaker, known for his roles in several films such as Cinderella Man, Hot Fuzz, The Bourne Ultimatum, and Blitz, was formally diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at the age of 36. He stated that he believes his condition helped him to achieve success in his career, by allowing him to understand more about himself and to help him freely move on with his life.
