Ron Howard appears to have avoided the many dangers of a Hollywood childhood.
But, as the actor and director has realized, that certainly doesn’t mean he had a normal childhood.
He came to that realization while he and his brother, Clint, processed their father’s 2017 death, according to the Hollywood Reporter — and that’s why the pair wrote a memoir together.
The Boys: A Memoir of Hollywood and Family comes out October 12; it pays tribute to Ron and Clint’s parents for ensuring that, despite being child actors, the two grew up loved and well-adjusted.
Ron Howard, as you probably don’t need to be told, gained fame as Opie on The Andy Griffith Show and preserved it as Richie Cunningham on Happy Days.
Clint Howard, as you may not know, appeared on shows including Gentle Ben and Star Trek.
