  • I don't care what anyone says, Coco is the best movie of the year. Beautiful in every way.
  • (To the victims of sexual assault & harassment) You are heard, believed, your bravery & courage is inspiring. I'm with you, I'm listening. I will do my part to call out those around me.
  • FYI, the kid in Cheaper By The Dozen who yells 'My latte!' has been, and always will be, my hero.
  • Eggs are people too.
  • Why is it that even though I know I'm not carrying any weapons or drugs, I'm still super relieved when I make it through airport security?
  • I want to be a nice guy like all of the security guards at music festivals.
  • I love being in anything that's scary to people. [5]
  • [On 13 Reasons why] i’ve been acting/working since i was 8 years old, and this show came into my life at a time when i wasn’t sure how interested i was in even doing it anymore, but the story really stuck with me from the first time i read it and i gave it a chance. i’m very lucky they gave me a chance too. this show has changed my life in more ways than i can explain. [4]
  • I pass on a lot of teen roles that get sent to me because a lot of the time it doesn't feel real. It's sugar-coated. There's no depth to it. [6]
