Maguire had admitted to a difficult chilldhood, and admitted he was excited for some stability in his life. “But the truth of the matter is I realized at a young age that I was responsible for myself,” he said in 2007. “My feelings of love or security or happiness – they were all in my own hands. I had plenty of difficult, emotional and scary times as a kid, but I don’t dwell on it.”

Meyer is a jewelry and clothing designer currently working on a collection at Barneys New York.
