RJ Mitte Interview
RJ Mitte: ‘By 13, I was the main breadwinner for my family. It was scary but necessary’
My grandparents would take me out fishing in their boat once a week from when I about two or three, growing up in Texas and Louisiana. I loved it. The biggest fish I ever caught was a 1,200lb marlin – but you name it, and I’ve caught it. I don’t get to go out as much these days, but I still enjoy it when I do. I find it calming.
For most of my childhood I had casts on both my feet. So I was always falling in the boat and knocking things overboard. There was never a dull moment on that boat. One time, I cast out and ended up hooking Poppa, my grandfather, in the head.
He was sitting in the back, so I couldn’t see him. I just kept yanking and yanking and ended up setting the hook in his head.
So we had to go to the hospital, and every time we hit a wave, it would send shocks down his spine. Poppa joked I’d caught the biggest fish of the day. It was pretty funny.
My grandfather started taking me hunting when I was six. We’d hunt deer. We wouldn’t always get stuff, but we enjoyed it.
We’d drive out in the woods, make a camp and wake up at about 3am. I had my own rifle. I’ve only shot one deer in my life, though, when I was eight or nine.
My parents got divorced when I was nine months old, and my father would only pop in and see me once a year, if that. I don’t have much contact with him. He remarried when I was quite young and they had their own little family.
He does his own thing. We are kind of estranged. But I don’t feel like he’s missing from my life. My mother and I are extremely close and we still live together, along with my 12-year-old sister, Lacey.
