Actor Taylor Kitsch, star of Friday Night Lights and the sleeper streaming hit WACO, stated that he moved from Los Angeles to Montana with the goal of looking for peace.
Kitsch, a former Canadian, made his statement to The Hollywood Press reporter, stating that his personality never fully fit in with Los Angeles.
“I got a later start in business, and I was able to have a sense of who I was and what I needed,” he stated. “Being in L.A. was never ever a fantastic thing for me, and I enjoy being out here– there’s so much peace to grasp. That’s what this location represents to me: It’s not going to resolve every issue, but ideally it will assist a minimum of someone pursue what they need.”
Kitsch stated that he has actually been building a sober-recovery community for veterans in the city of Bozeman, using a home, cabins, and other resources for men attempting to clean themselves up.

“I’m simply really thrilled about this, about it being a base camp for people to empower themselves,” he said, adding that “every fucking nickel” for the job came from his own pocket.
Kitsch became more attuned to veteran issues after working close with retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell while recording the motion picture Lone Survivor, which retold his painful survivor story.
“The stakes were very life-and-death, and Marcus was one of the few people I called for assistance,” he stated. “When you get into that community, it’s like you’re a brother for life, and it’s truly beautiful.”

In 2022, Kitsch paid tribute to the fallen Navy SEAL Lt. Michael P. Murphy, who he portrayed in the movie, when checking out a museum devoted to his honor.
“I think it was actually just the leadership,” Kitsch said. “One of the biggest things I discovered Mike was simply how to lead, and it is really type of giving the power to the other men and letting them do what they do best.”
“This genuinely is an experience that has left me with a brotherhood that is hard to take into words,” he added.
