Aaron (like many of us) became completely and utterly obsessed with the show Stranger Things. He was asked to interview Millie for ELLE Magazine, during which he made his adoption intentions crystal clear.

No word on whether or not the papers arrived.

People curse at him all the time.

Jesse Pinkman had a very simple yet memorable catchphrase — you all know what it is.

According to Jesse, he's been called the curse word by random people on the street more times than he could ever begin to count.

Aaron had worked with Bryan Cranston once before.

Through six degrees of separation. Back when Malcolm in the Middle was being cast, Aaron auditioned for the role of Francis — Hal's (Cranston) oldest son.

It didn't go Aaron's way but he and Cranston still managed to find one another down the road.

He's a father!

A little more than two years ago, Aaron and his wife Lauren gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.

I know that this is a beautiful moment between father and daughter but what the heck is going on with Aaron's mirror — it's disgustingly dirty!

Aaron was once a contestant on *The Price Is Right*!

This was back when Bob Barker was still hosting the show. A very young Aaron Paul is over the moon to be standing in the presence of the legendary game show host.

In case you're wondering, he just barely overbid and missed out on a brand new car!

He saved Jesse Pinkman's life — literally!

As you can see from his audition tape, he stumbles through his words and even forgets his lines at several points throughout.

Aaron and Lauren did an expose with Architectural Digest to show off their new home in Idaho.

Their sprawling chalet looks as picturesque as fresh snow on a cold winter's morning. Can somebody get me the name of their decorator?!

All Tequila is Mezcal but not all Mezcals are tequila. It's kind of like how Scotch, Rye, and Bourbon are all different types of Whisky.

Aaron and Bryan's company is called Dos Hombres.
