Toy Story Actor Will Poulter Reflects About Being Mistaken for Sid

Will Poulter said that when he was in Los Angeles, a stranger thought he was Sid from Toy Story.

The 30-year-old told GQ Hype, “A guy at a urinal in LA last week turned to me and said, ‘You’re in Toy Story, right?’ And I was like, ‘Well, that was animated.”

“I don’t want to be rude. I also appreciate there’s a meme going round of me – I dressed up as Sid from Toy Story for anti-bullying week. So arguably, I haven’t helped my case. But Toy Story came out in 1995. I was two. And they weren’t doing it through live action,” the character from Midsommar joked.

People made fun of Poulter for years because they thought he looked like Andy’s unhappy neighbor from the Pixar movie Toy Story.

In 2017, the Narnia star wore the character’s dress to Halloween to bring attention to bullying.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was just released, and reviewers called it one of the best Marvel movies in years. Poulter was one of the stars of that movie.
