Anthony was born in the city of Sacramento, California. He has asserted that he was not intended to be born. According to “Anthony’s Long Lost Animation,” Anthony has two brothers, one of them is named Mathew. Anthony’s parents divorced when he was two years old.
As Anthony mentioned in his second “Draw My Life” video, his mother suffers from severe agoraphobia, which meant that he had to support his family as a child. His grandmother helped his family at first, but she died when he was 14.
Anthony and Ian both attended Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, California. They both attended American River College in Sacramento, California following graduation, but dropped out after two years.

Anthony Padilla is a $3 million YouTube personality and comedian from the United States. Anthony Padilla was born in September 1987 in Sacramento County, California. He and Ian Andrew Hecox co-founded the sketch comedy combo Smosh, and he is most known for that.
Padilla began creating flash cartoons under the name Smosh in 2003 and began uploading YouTube videos in 2005. As of November 2018, Smosh had over 23 million subscribers and 8 billion views. Three times on YouTube, their channel has been the most subscribed channel. In 2010 and 2011, Smosh released the comedy music albums Sexy Album and If Music Were Real.
Padilla is the creator of Ask Charlie, Smosh Pit Weekly, El Smosh, Zombies vs. Ninjas: The Web Series, Samurai! Daycare, Oishi High School Battle, Just Shut Up!, 16-Bit High School, Honest Game Trailers, Part Timers, and Smosh Babies. For Smosh Games, he earned a Steamy Award for Best Gaming Series in 2014. Smosh makes between $7 and $10 million per year from their many entertainment ventures. That’s enough to put them among YouTube’s highest-paid celebs.
Smosh was acquired in an all-stock deal by Alloy Digital (which later became Defy Media) in 2011. In June 2017, Anthony Padilla quit Smosh. Defy Media was shut down in November 2018.
In response to the company’s failure, Anthony released a YouTube video in which he finally admitted how much he despised working at Defy and how he and Hecox sold Smosh for all shares (no cash) on the premise that it would someday go public (which it never did).
He did receive a fair salary while at Defy, but he did not benefit from Smosh’s great success.
Anthony earned his driver’s license when he was a freshman, but he got a car and started driving earlier because he used to bring Ian home after school, as recounted in an episode of Lunchtime with Smosh and in his YouTube video “Draw My Life.”
His eyes are brown, his complexion is somewhat tanned, and he has curly dark brown hair that he wears in various short lengths.
He flat-ironed his hair, which admirers dubbed “emo hair,” from the beginning of Smosh till 2014. Fans adored Anthony’s hair and frequently linked him with it. In The End of Christmas, he debuted his new hair for the first time (Part 1). The hair change devastated fans, and in the BTS for The End of Christmas, he read fans’ Tweets about their grief.
Some admirers still leave comments on videos requesting that he grow his emo hair back out. Three emo teens (Shayne, Courtney, and Keith) abduct Anthony and try to force him to return to his emo hair in the video EMO HAIR. In I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY and Emo Anthony Returns, he straightened his emo hair twice.
According to a tweet from Anthony on June 23, 2013, he stands 5’11” tall and weighs 158 pounds. He weighed himself clothed on a scale in an Amsterdam hotel in April 2017 and came in at 164.9 pounds.
According to the episodes “SEXIST BURGER!” (Lunchtime w/ Smosh), “ADDICTED TO BREAD!” (Lunchtime w/ Smosh), and “Girlfriend Tag!” (‘WatchUsLiveAndStuff,’ the former vlogging channel of Kalel and Anthony), Anthony is 1/4 Filipino because his father is half Filipino and his paternal grandmother is from the Philippines.
Anthony stated in an interview with NewMedia Rockstars that he would naturally start with Squirtle and then catch a Rattata to confront the first Gym Leader.
According to the same interview, Anthony’s favorite guilty pleasure is comic books and graphic novels. Anthony admits that the Sexy Anthony photo session was highly embarrassing for him because he had to dress like a nude cowboy.
There was a large group of kids on bicycles and parents who drove by precisely when he dropped his pants when they arrived. He was dressed in a flesh-toned speedo.
Anthony stated that he had no intentions for further schooling and had no idea what he wanted to achieve with his life until he started making money on YouTube. Anthony used to develop websites for his buddies to supplement his income and pay for gas and auto insurance.
In *Emo* Anthony Returns, he even stated that he would work at the local Blockbuster near his home. Anthony has been consuming vegan foods since late 2013. This began as a way to assist Kalel (who also avoided animal products), but he switched completely in 2014 due to health concerns.
The two made their professional acting debuts in Smosh: The Movie, alongside Ian.
Anthony teamed up with Axe in March of 2017. Around December 2017, the cooperation came to an end.
Anthony was in a relationship with YouTuber Kalel Cullen from October 10, 2010 to November 14, and they were engaged on June 29, 2013. On December 4th, 2014, they announced their breakup. Even though neither of them featured in any videos together on either of their channels, the choice was mutual, and the two remained friends for a long time. After a succession of social media reveals and unfollows, it’s safe to say they’re no longer friends as of 2017.
He mentioned in his second “Draw My Life” that his relationship with Kalel was manipulative and that he felt used for the majority of it. He was led all over the place until he demanded her approval in every facet of his life. His self-esteem had plummeted, and he had forgotten who he was as a person. He didn’t say her name in the video, but the incidents he detailed were similar to those from their previous relationship.
Following the publication of the video, Kalel sparked a significant social media debate. Her reaction to the video was vehemently nasty, and she bombarded Anthony with numerous insulting tweets. She also wrote a lengthy piece titled “The Truth” about it. She took it down shortly after posting it.
In early 2015, he began dating writer and comedian Miel Bredouw, and on September 22, 2017, he confirmed the relationship on YouTube. He chose to keep his relationship with Miel more covert than his relationship with Kalel. They collaborated on some internet content, but not as much as Kalel and he did.
Miel relocated to New York in September 2019, signaling that they had broken up. Since then, the majority of their YouTube collaborations have been made private.
On December 14, 2019, Anthony stated that he has been seeing Mykie from the YouTube channel “Glam&Gore” for five months, but that they have been dating formally since September of 2019, which was later posted as the ninth of September. It was announced on his Instagram, Mykie’s Instagram, and in a video on Mykie’s YouTube channel.
