6. Dylan McDermott
Growing up in Waterbury, McDermott had a tough run as a child. In an interview with Esquire, he talks about how young his parents were when they had him (his mother 15; his father 17) and how his mother was tragically killed when he was younger. It was his father’s third wife, playwright Eve Ensler, who encouraged him to pursue his acting career, McDermott stated in an interview with Today.
