Why he might be annoying:

    His mother nicknamed him 'Misha' after one of her old boyfriends ('much to my father's chagrin').
    He carved the word 'Why' into his left leg when he was thirteen and still has the scar from it.
    One of his early acting gigs was hosting a series of IRS instructional videos.
    He read the Book of Revelation as preparation for his role as Castiel.
    He refers to his Twitter followers as 'minions.'

Why he might not be annoying:

    He recalled that growing up, 'Sometimes our family simply didn't have the money to put a roof over our heads, and from time to time we found ourselves homeless and sleeping in a tent.'
    He worked as a carpenter to put himself through college, and used the skills he gained to build his own house and much of the furniture in it.
    He was a White House intern for four months during the Clinton administration.
    He spent time in a monastery in Nepal; he still practices meditation and goes on an annual ten-day retreat.
    Two of his poems were published in the Columbia Poetry Review (2008).
    He won a People's Choice Award for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor (2015).
    He co-founded Random Acts, a non-profit dedicated to funding and inspiring acts of kindness.
