Mark Ruffalo has confessed that he could be as angry as The Hulk when he was younger.

The Avengers star revealed that he found it easy to relate to his character since he has suffered from similar anger management issues at times.

"When I was a young actor, if you came to my apartment, you would have seen pictures and photos hung in the most bizarre places, where they were covering holes in the wall from auditions that I didn't get or slights that I felt I had suffered, where things were thrown, cups were thrown at the walls," Ruffalo told The AP.

"I'm no stranger to that kind of anger and rage, but over time, I've, like a rock that's spent many times being tumbled around in the sea, I've sort of gotten the edges polished off of me.

"I'm not fighting the same fights that I was back then, the same demons."

The actor recently admitted that the role of Bruce Banner and The Hulk was an unusual choice for him, claiming that he felt like he identified with the superhero.

The Avengers is now playing in UK cinemas (as Marvel Avengers Assemble) and opens May 4 in the US.
