While appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Pena shared that it was his son that inspired him to make children’s movies. 

He recalled watching some movie with him, then 10-year old, where his son was constantly laughing watching the movie and laughing at the actors, calling them good. 

That was when he immediately called his buddy and said he got to be in kids’ movies. 

“They change your life, and all of a sudden, you are like, That’s your audience. You want to make him happy, he said.

The reason her husband started acting 

Her husband started acting not because he loved it from the beginning but because he needed to. He only started loving it after getting paid. 

He went into acting ass-backward. Instead of loving it and then getting paid, he got paid and then loved it, he said in an interview with Guardian

The reason he started going to auditions so to take care of his sick mother. 

But unfortunately, his mother passed away before she could see her son becoming successful. He only became successful after her demise. 

Pena said he could not afford the acting class, so he started reading acting books. He would work on one technique for probably six months and audition. 

He didn't care whether it was an open call until he had a little bit of a grasp on it, he said. 

He then moved on to the next things, which took him two years to get through the book. He went through the book three or four times. 

"The mentality is different when there is a necessity level that when you need to do it, you need to try to be good at your job," he added. 

At the same time, he would bus tables three or four days a week to make end meets.

His first professional gig was My Fellow Americans which was released in 1996

His breakthrough performance came in 2004 in best picture Oscar-winning Paul Haggis movies Million Dollar Baby and Crash

Her husband credits Scientology for making him a better actor

During an interview with Guardian, he shared that it was his concern about his drinking habits that led him to Scientology. 

According to him, he wasn't an alcoholic but was doing it too much and entered the detox program Purification Rundown

And there was the next thing and the next thing. For him, it's not the religion like belief but practical things one does, he said.

He also credited another Scientology program, Study Tech, for making him a confident reader, which made him a better actor because he felt like it helped his understanding of scripts.

He is aware that Scientology often causes controversy, but he doesn't read that stuff, he added.
