For his performance, Justin was nominated for two Young Artist Awards for the Best Performance in a TV Comedy Series: Supporting Young Actor in 1998 and 1999, while he was also nominated for a YoungStar Award for the Best Performance by a Young Actor in a Comedy TV Series.

His latest role in a TV series has been in the comedy “Sons of Tucson” in 2010.

Love life and relationships

Justin has been keeping the details of his love life hidden from the media’s curiosity, and because he hasn’t talked about any girls he might have dated, there are rumors circulating the internet that the popular actor’director is gay.

It’s believed that Justin was romantically linked to Haley Egeana Giraldo, the daughter of the famous American singer and actress Pat Benatar. Justin and Haley have known each other since they were kids, and a rumor has it that they were dating for several years sometime in the 2000s. However, in 2017 Haley married Matt Williams, who is a model and a bodybuilder.

Justin is currently single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have children.
