Michael Pitt is disgusted by showbiz hypocrisy - as he recalls being treated as an outcast before rocketing to stardom in DAWSON'S CREEK.

The 24-year-old actor never fitted in while growing up in tough New Jersey, but he is outraged by the sudden change attitude towards him.

He says, "You grow up in an environment where most people think of you as trash, and then you get to this other place where people who normally wouldn't talk to you want something out of you."
