Glenn Howerton: Quotes
[On his son Miles] My wife and I thought it would be a good idea to wait to see the baby first before we decided on his name, to get a sense of the guy you know, Then we saw him and he looked like a tiny little baby alien grandpa & I was like, ‘'I am not getting any information from this at all.'
I was one of those strange people who loved school.
I'm really bad at writing jokes.
I take my work very seriously, and that's the only way for it to be fun for me.
Dennis is a great outlet for my really weird sense of humor.
I do legs every day. I never want to be that top heavy guy at the gym. Very unhealthy.
'Goddamnit' is just super fun to say. I don't know why. God made it that way for a reason, I suppose.
Hey just a quick reminder: if you wear too much perfume, f**k you.
I always look tired.
