BIG PLANS: Alex R Hibbert
MOONLIGHT ACTOR Alex R Hibbert wants to use his acting salary to help fund cancer research, and work to improve the lives of others.
The 12-year-old South Florida-native also told film blog HeyUGuys.com that he hopes to remain grounded despite the spotlight of his newfound fame. And he’s hoping to use his acting money to improve the lives of others.
“I don’t work for the fame,” he explained. “I just work for my mom. I grind for my mom, everything I do, everything I pursue is for my mom, and I’m doing this for her so she can retire. I don’t really care about the fame that much, I just wanna help my mom, and help other people that need help.”
He also admitted that acting is just a stepping stone to help him make the world a better place.
“What I wanted to do was either play football or be a scientist that cures cancer,” he continued. “In middle school I didn’t know what to do with my life. I was a bit of a bad child, I’d always get in trouble because I had a lot of movement. But the drama program settled me down, I can use my movement for good.”
“Football is out of the question now, but scientist-wise, I’m going to take most of my money. Wait, some of my money, and build a lab, and I’m going to take the best scientists to work on curing cancer and stuff like that.”
