Davis Guggenheim has dyslexia.

Davis Guggenheim is a film and television director and producer. We asked what he’d like to tell his younger self. “I remember I had a biology teacher who circled a lab that I did, and I had spelled the word ‘bottle’ five different ways, and he took it to me and my parents, as if to say that I was lazy, that a more disciplined person could spell ‘bottle’ correctly every time, and weirdly, my brain just couldn’t see the difference.”
