Great answer!

How about:  "It's not an act.  He really is weird."

 

But again... English doesn't have a good counterpart of "ser" and "estar".  We are coming up with ways to say more or less the same thing, but in Portuguese the verbs "ser" and "estar" are much subtler than what we say in English.
