John Kapelos Talks Struggles with His Family in His Early Acting Days

John Kapelos has remained a familiar face with notable roles in fan-favorite movies throughout generations.

He's been around in Hollywood since the 80s, but has the 'Breakfast Club' actor found time to settle down with his family after all these years in the industry?

Get to Know John Kapelos's Family

It gets difficult for celebrities to maintain privacy amongst their family. However, despite having garnered popularity, John has disclosed only what he wants to be out there in the media.

Indeed, John has kept all the nitty-gritty details about his personal life away from the public. But that doesn't mean he has kept us completely in the dark either.

John was born in Ontario, Canada, to his parents, Thomas and Anna Kapelos. They come from Greek ancestry. His family ran a clothing company, and he was the first in his family to take up acting as a career.

He shared that growing up; he had differences and friction with his parents, especially his father when he was growing up.

Apparently, his parents were not initially so supportive of his chosen career path.

John decided to commit to his passion for acting and drop out of college to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. His parents, however, were not so ecstatic about his decision.

In fact, they even gave him an ultimatum. If acting didn't work out for him in one year, he would have to go back to college.

Luckily for Kapelos, he found his true calling, and although he started off slow, he eventually built himself a successful career.

He has decades of experience in the industry, but he hasn't taken out time to find the right woman for him in those years. The actor has reached 66 years of age but does not have a wife or children yet. 

Instead, he has a loving girlfriend by his side. He and his partner Heidi have been together for some years now.

Apart from his partner and parents, John has not revealed much about other family members. 

Moreover, John might have had some friction with his father at a young age, but he received valuable advice from his old man, especially about finances.
