They do not have any children. Lindsey doesn’t appear to work in the entertainment industry, but her Instagram profile says that she is an “esquire”.
7. He Likes Black Coffee
For many people, the taste of coffee without cream and/or sugar is a little too bitter, but Justin isn’t one of those people.

While talking to So Many Shows he also added that he likes to have his morning cup of coffee on an empty stomach.
8. He Attended The University Of Louisville
After high school Justin knew that he wanted to attend college, but he also knew that his options were limited due to financial restraints.

Justin decided to attend the University of Louisville where he became very active in the drama department.
9. He Wants To Have An “Unconventional Career”
If you were to ask most actors what kind of career they’d like to have, they’d probably say successful. Justin, on the other hand, has a different word in mind. While talking to Interview Magazine he said that he wants his career to be unconventional and added, “I want to be able to do what he has done, and what other people like him have done—people like Johnny Depp—where he’s able to play a lot of different characters and still carry a lot of weight with those different perspectives, and be trusted to go into these different directions.”
10. He Likes To Travel
When Justin was a kid, he probably never could have imagined that one day he would get the chance to visit places all over the world. Thanks to his work, however, that’s exactly what has happened. He loves visiting different places and has gotten to visit countries like France and England.
