    Gaten Matarazzo From "Stranger Things" Gave A Moving Interview About His Disability

    Protect him at all costs.

    Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin in Stranger Things, opened up about his disability on The Jonathan Ross Show last week.

    ITV

    He said he has cleidocranial dysplasia, which is a condition that affects the growth of the bones.

    Matarazzo said: "It's a condition where you are born without your collarbones; I don't have any. It affects your facial growth, your skull growth, it affects your teeth. That's why I don't have any – these are fake – I have teeth but they're all baby teeth."

    Matarazzo said: "I just wanna raise awareness for it and let people know that it's not something that you should be afraid of showing."

    He also recently told BBC 5 Live that he missed out on hundreds of roles because of his disability.

    People are in awe of the interview.
