I love cereal. I eat several bowls a day, mostly a few late at night.

Some suggestions for you :

To be called a genius at 17 or 18 years old can sometimes cause arrested development.

I mean, to feel in good hands as an actor... it's the best feeling.

One of my favorite things I read was John Steinbeck's journals while he was writing 'East of Eden,' which was so cool.

There's a lot of people that I would love to work with. There's a lot of different kinds of parts I wanna play. As your career progresses, you hope that you get some more opportunity or some more choice.

I would not take a girl to a club on a Thursday. I would not take her to a really noisy, swanky restaurant.

When my girlfriend's away, I cook a big vat of meaty pasta and sauce and eat that for about a week. Then I eat out the rest of the time. When she's home, we eat at home probably twice a week. I chop, she cooks.

In life, you have to keep certain parts of yourself in check because you want to be a decent human being. But one of the guilty pleasures of acting is that sometimes you get to let a little something out that you don't in life because it's not right.

I approach every role from scratch.

In tragedy, it's hard to find a good resolution; it's not black and white: it's a big fog of gray.

I think you sometimes have to go hit rock bottom before you can grow and rebuild as a person.

One of my favorite films is 'Dumb and Dumber.' I'd love to do some really silly comedy someday.

George C. Scott, man, was a powerful dude.

One thing you notice is, there's a lot of people with raw talent, and then there's people who take that talent and work hard.

I don't like tight pants on guys.
