'White Lotus' star Theo James shares 'gross' moment that made him ditch 'rock star' dreams

Before he became a movie star, Theo James had his sights set on becoming a rock star. But one "gross" incident made him realize he needed to pursue a different path. On the "Kelly Clarkson Show," James took a trip down memory lane to his days as an aspiring musician. "I wanted to be a rock star," Theo told the host. "I played in hundreds of gigs, I was in various different bands, most of them terrible. When I was playing in a band, I had a bottle of urine thrown at me, which was nice. At that point I was like, ‘Maybe I should try something else,’" he continued. The "White Lotus" star said the incident most likely occurred because of impatient fans.

"I think the act before us was late and everyone was kind of inebriated and angry and someone decided that the best way to deal with that was pee in a bottle and throw it at someone's face." The actor explained that being pelted with a bottle of urine was just one of the unfortunate events he experienced early in his career. ‘THE WHITE LOTUS’: JENNIFER COOLIDGE ON REPRISING HER ROLE AND BEING A ‘SEX ICON’   "I've had lots of things go wrong," James said.
