He plans to join Tom Cruise in the long-awaited sequel Top Gun: Maverick next year, but Glen Powell & # 39; s Hollywood climb made an online troll scratch his head.

The 30-year-old actor shared a screenshot of a Twitter exchange with his mother Cyndy on Saturday.

The proud mother quickly closed an anonymous troll who wanted to shame her son because he had a so-called unrecognizable first name.

The exchange featured a troll that jumped into a discussion about Glen (which was not included in the screenshot).

& # 39; Also, Glen Powell would have been a movie star sooner if he wasn't called Glen & # 39 ;, they tweet.

But the actor's mother, who tweeted as Momma Powell, was quick with a rejoinder.

& # 39; We didn't think it would amount to anything, & # 39; she wrote. & # 39; Sometimes children don't listen and just pursue their dreams, regardless of their name. & # 39;

A boy's best friend: after the troll said that Glen would have been more successful with a different name, his mother Cyndy shot back his & # 39; dreams, no matter what & # 39; would chase

Cyndy & # 39; s Twitter account is primarily devoted to retweeting and responding to news about her son's career.

Contrary to what the troll thought, Glen & # 39; s career saw him rise rapidly from small pieces to large roles in critical and commercial successes.

Glen was given the honor to breathe new life into the romantic comedy genre thanks to his role vis-à-vis Zoey Deutch in the Netflix film Set It Up 2018.

Glen and Zoey played a leading role in the film, which scores 91% fresh from Rotten Tomatoes, as assistants to equally tense and borderline-offending bosses.

After accidentally bumping into each other, the two assistants come up with a plan to set up their bosses together in the hope of cooling their mercury.

The popularity of the streaming movie led to a second collaboration between Glen and Zoey, an upcoming movie that for the time being got the title Most Dangerous Game.
