I taught myself English. My English teacher was the sitcom ‘Friends.’ Back in the days when I was, like, 15, 14, it was like a syndrome for Korean parents to make their kids watch ‘Friends.’ I thought I was a victim at that time, but now I’m the lucky one.
RM

I’m a middle child, so I have middle-child syndrome. With a middle child, you always have to take in everything and adjust and maybe compromise a little bit so you’re able to see both sides of an issue. I’m also a Leo – I love astrology – so that affected me, just being a lion.

Well, you know I have an office, my film offices. So I know that syndrome. I fancy offices, so there must be something wrong with me. Even the window cleaner intrigues me. It’s a very sexy environment.
Hugh Grant

Sally Phillips
It’s gone on my whole life, this David and Goliath syndrome that a lot of these smaller guys always have. They think the only reason I’ve ever had any success in my career is because of my physical size. And you know what? If that’s the case, so be it. I really don’t care. Because I have that size.
Kevin Nash
I bounce my knees, but I do not have restless leg syndrome. I did an interview, I don’t even know who it was with, and they said I told them I have restless leg syndrome and it distracts me from my work. I do not have any syndrome.
Taylor Lautner
I am a father. My son’s name is Max and my daughter’s name is Billie Grace. Twelve years ago Max was born with Down Syndrome. His journey has been complicated by infantile seizures, sleep apnea, dietary challenges and now, puberty!

If you had told me in 1997 that even 5 people would be

If you had told me in 1997 that even 5 people would be waiting online for me to sign my new book in 2009, I would have jumped around like Joe Carter in the 1993 World Series. I love it. I can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t like it. The only thing I worry about is carpal tunnel syndrome – my last tour almost caused it.
Bill Simmons
Technically I have siblings, but they are quite a bit older than me – I was the accident – so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better.
Carrie Underwood
It’s very important that we do show appreciation for those who go to work in raising awareness. You know, Tourette Syndrome is not well known.

Having Down syndrome is like being born normal. I am just like you and you are just like me. We are all born in different ways, that is the way I can describe it. I have a normal life.
