I've had my heart broken, and it's not fun. But I'd rather have my heart broken than break someone else's heart.
I always wanted to get out in the world and see what was here. What defines me is wanderlust.
It's hard for me to work closely with a girl and not completely fall in love with her as a person.
Making people laugh is hard, especially for someone who isn't happy.
On moving out of L.A.: "I didn't want to get sucked up in the madness. Flitting around from club to club and girl to girl is no way to live."
We're all on a journey. The average American switches professions four times. I'm lucky to be in a business where I can change the character I am playing every couple of months.
That whole idea of American film being different from European film is nonsense. It all depends on what kind of American film you're looking at. There's a giant stretch of American films being made. Plus there are different types of French movies. You know, people would say that Luc Besson's movies are American ... so you go, 'Well, he's French'. Or that Wicker Park is an American film, but (the director) Paul McGuigan's Scottish, so ... where are we talking about here? Is it all about where the money comes from, 'cos the money for this one comes from Europe. It can't be that. Is it the star? Then where do you put Russell Crowe? For me film is film and it doesn't have to do with borders or any of that sort of thing.
I'm trying to choose scripts by character. I'm not so worried about creating a career. I want to create good roles, because. I want to be the best actor I can be.
"I try my hardest not to have any plans. It drives the people in my life crazy. But I try to spend the majority of my time back home".
Usually, when I meet a really pretty girl, right off the bat I start to feel pretty insecure.
Life isn't what it's like in the movies.
Shooting in Hong Kong was nice. But it wasn't all that different from shooting in the U.S. or shooting in Europe. But shooting in the Philippines was. We shot for a bit in a place called Diwalwal, outside Davao in Mindanao. And it was about a five-hour car ride from the nearest airport to the foot of the mountain where this town was. We went up to the mountain, and they had never seen white people in person before. It was a really interesting dynamic. They would follow us around. There were 43,000 people in the town, and there would be a couple of thousand following us around everywhere. People were very nice, very sweet. But there were some rebels around the area who kidnap for money, so we had to have the Philippine army with us. (On filming I Come With the Rain)
I had a good time shooting in New Zealand. I almost bought a home there while I was there, because I loved it so much. The fact that so much topography is jammed into such a small area - it's like everything in the United States, basically, in a country the size of southern California. And there are so few people. It feels like open landscape. Natural. But it is still an 18-hour flight from here. That was kind of the biggest deterrent.
I should be getting photographs of me with my arm around these people like restaurant owners do. Because eventually I'm going to have to prove to my kids that once I was an actor!
It's not scary to make a horror film because you get to pull back the curtain and see that none of it's real. When you're watching one, the terror bombards you.
