In a media interaction, George Lopez shared one of his memorable incidents from his childhood. The media page, Coltbalok, narrated the incident as,

“George told me about a very memorable moment in his formative years growing up. This happened around the time he was living with his grandfather after his (George’s) father had left. George’s grandfather told him: “You are lazy just like your father was.” George was hurt by this, as any of us would be; however, sometimes being told painful things is a necessary part of our growth as individuals – and in this case, it was. George took it as motivation. He turned something negative into a positive. And now George’s life and career is the manifestation of that. To me, this is a great reminder not to become defeated in the face of pain and struggle, but to push through to even greater heights.”
