I did what I had to do to get where I wanted to go. I had unearned confidence.

Some suggestions for you :

I think we just knew that we had a movie when Rachel walked in the room.

I feel like I think like a woman because I grew up with my mother and my sister, so I've just been programmed to think like a girl.

If I eat a huge meal and I can get the girl to rub my belly, I think that's about as romantic as I can think of.

I know that I'm with the person I'm supposed to be with.

I don't like the process of meeting someone and you make a film and that's it. You think you're just getting started, and then it's over.

I think that you can sort of have your own personal journey and you know, you can just kind of apply that to whatever characters you're playing.

As a kid I decided that a Canadian accent doesn't sound tough. I thought guys should sound like Marlon Brando. So now I have a phony accent that I can't shake, so it's not phony anymore.

For me, I sort of felt like it was kind of a fairytale... but an interesting one. I don't know of anybody who has had a romance quite like this, but I certainly know people who have stuck it out.

I like working with actresses, and I like women a lot, not for obvious reasons, but just in that that there's so much about what they bring to the scene that keeps it so interesting. Their instincts are so different, and they never explain them to you.

If I'm still acting at 46, I'll be surprised.

I got a Twitter because some guy was pretending to be me.

I'm going to make a movie about 'Hey Girl.'

I was highly influenced by violence.

Working with someone is the best way to get to know someone, especially if it's a creative endeavor.
