Lawrence Monoson (Teddy) from Friday the 13th: Part IV hasn't shied away from saying some pretty douchey things about his role as Teddy in the movie, calling it many things including low-taste, worse-than-B-movie-quality and a shameful movie.
Over the last few years it seems like he has been lightening up and embracing his fans that still see him as the Teddy Bear with a shit-eating grin. It's not a surprise that Friday the 13th fans are plentiful and we love our on-screen heroes.
Here's a really cool article from Teen Set Magazine – which was a pretty big magazine at one time – on Lawrence and his work up to Friday the 13th: Part IV. I am not sure when this is from, but I take it that it's about 1984 - 1985.
