Tim Allen is best known for 'Home Improvement' and for being a comedian. Not many people know that Allen actually went to prison at a young age, and he only became a comedian after he got out.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Allen opens up about the life-changing experience. He first describes how he ended up in prison in the first place, saying, "I just was a lazy good for nothing. Raised well, great parents. My father died. I got a new stepfather, he was a great guy. I just was a f**kup. I relate to entitlement... I grew up feeling entitled, and that got me lazy and opportunistic. And really nobody's fault but my own. I need hard lessons."
He adds, "And I got into prisons, and I do not belong here. Well, it's too bad. It's like saying you don't belong in an AA meeting. It's a little late at that point. You're at an AA meeting. You're in prison, you idiot. You got yourself here. Nobody's to blame, and it was the first time I took responsibility. I worked hard to study and when I got out... actually before I went in, I went up on stage, and I just dedicated myself with that. I actually worked six months, got my act together and I was called and my bond was revoked and I went to prison. But I kept all the contacts. It was a life changer, I'll tell you that."
Allen currently stars on 'The Last Man Standing', and ABC has announced that the show has officially been renewed for another season. It's also been announced that Allen will return to reprise his role as Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story 4.
