Growing up, he never knew much about him as he was homeschooled. He then found posters around the house and started watching McQueen's movies which later inspired him to give acting a shot himself.

After watching Mr. McQueen's recently released biographical movie, Steven described his feeling to Wet Paint:

It was cool to see younger pictures of my dad with his dad and to kind of hear some of the stories that I had absolutely never heard before. And hear some stories from my grandmother and just other people whose life he had affected or touched. It was really cool.

Audiences surely didn't know from where he got his mighty bundle of on-screen presence. He was born under the hood of awesomeness. How incredible is that!
