- Take the job of acting very seriously. Don't take it for granted. Don't get caught up in chasing fame
- I think I could've had a little more gratitude for the job I did have.
- o matter where you go, commit to it, and work and meet people, Stay busy.
- Duck you, autocorrect.
- Man, I come across as pretty shifty in real life
- Turns out that as a celebrity, there's a LOT I'm entitled to that I haven't been exploiting
- Any time you need me, and you're somehow able to reach me, I'll be there.
- Sometimes it's fun to think about how much our children's generation is likely to f**k everything up for our grandchildren's generation.
- Life is like an a**hole: you only have one that you can cram stuff into
- Had a dream I went back in time with a quantum computer and gouged out Joseph Stalin's eye with a cocktail fork. VERY gratifying.
- Just saw a homeless man wearing a shirt that read 'Believe in God'. Not exactly a ringing endorsement.
- I'd always rather be a jerk than a loser.
- It's still weird to have people come up to you and ask for an autograph
- I think I started to love acting because it brought me closer to people and made me more compassionate.
- If you decide to move to L.A. like, 'I'm just gonna see if it works, and if nothing works I'm gonna go back in a year, two years' - very, very few people with that attitude are successful.
