Taylor Kitsch was homeless, slept on subway before he was a star

Taylor Kitsch went from homeless to Hollywood.

The “Friday Night Lights” actor recalled being homeless for “a few weeks” early in his career and revealed he sometimes had to sleep on trains in New York City.

“It was a blue train from downtown all the way up to 182nd and at night they’d change, they’d take longer, A, C or E,” Kitsch told Us Weekly.

He moved into an apartment shortly after — but still faced considerable challenges in those new digs.

‘American Assassin’ star Dylan O’Brien is tougher than you think

“Then I was in an apartment with no electricity or power or hot water for months,” Kitsch continued.

The actor previously opened up about being homeless early on in his career in a 2013 interview with Glamour. He told the magazine that he was working as an Abercrombie model on the weekends at the time, and after being homeless in New York, he lived out of his car in Los Angeles.

The Canadian star, 36, did not specify how old he was when he was homeless, but he has since emerged as a recognizable figure in Hollywood thanks to starring roles in the popular NBC football series “Friday Night Lights,” as well as blockbuster films “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” “Battleship” and “Lone Survivor.”

In his latest movie, “American Assassin,” Kitsch stars as the primary antagonist as an American terrorist named Ghost who plans an attack on the United States.

The film, which also stars Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton, arrives in theaters this Friday.
