I get a friend to travel with me... I need somebody to bring me back to who I am. It's hard to be alone.
I really don't know what I'm doing... I don't. It's terrible. I go in there and I learn how to be like the character and do the best I can, and that's all I really do.
The best thing about acting is that I get to lose myself in another character and actually get paid for it... It's a great outlet. I'm not really sure who I am - it seems I change every day.
If you can do what you do best and be happy, you're further along in life than most people.
I don't see why I can't have friends of both sexes without wild rumors being circulated. It's crazy.
Brothers don't necessarily have to say anything to each other - they can sit in a room and be together and just be completely comfortable with each other.
I want to be a jerk like the rest of my friends, and have fun, and not care about the consequences, but I just can't now.
Drugs? Every one has a choice and I choose not to do drugs.
Don't think for a moment that I'm really like any of the characters I've played. I'm not. That's why it's called 'acting'.
I was always the kid in school who tried to get attention, not necessarily the class clown, but I'd do little unexpected performances.
If I want to go to a party with a few male friends, it doesn't mean I'm gay.
School, I never truly got the knack of. I could never focus on things I didn't want to learn.
Everywhere I go, somebody is staring at me, I don't know if people are staring because they recognize me or because they think I'm a weirdo.
I'm just starting to scratch the surface of what really makes me happy and it's taken me a while to admit that acting like a little child and being a jerk and a punk is fun.
It's easy to fall into the trap of believing all the hype that's written about you... Who knows? In a couple of years, you might find me in the loony bin!
I've been planted here to be a vessel for acting... That's why I'm really taking any part, regardless of how complicated it's going to be.
My career should adapt to me. Fame is like a VIP pass wherever you want to go.
When a role for a young guy is being offered to me, I think of River Phoenix. It feels like a loss.
Being dubbed as a hunk sort of annoys me. It gives me a yucky feeling.
I couldn't deal with playing a character who rides motorcycles and has a leather jacket and is a tough kid, y'know?
