  • [on his experience with James Van Der Beek and Rachael Leigh Cook on the set of Texas Rangers (2001)] In between scenes, we go up and play Nintendo 64. We just all hang out and have a good time.
  • [on rapper Eminem and his music] I think he's got [guts] for saying what he said. People get way too worked up about that stuff instead of just enjoying it.
  • I didn't even know guys modeled before that. I thought Fabio was the only male model, and I really didn't fit that bill.
  • I'll probably never be the best actor in Hollywood, but I hope to be the hardest working.
  • I don't believe that old clich√© that good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who want something so bad they can't sit still.
  • I'm a guy's guy. I don't comb my hair unless I have to, and I don't use lotions or fancy shampoos.

  • [on his movie The Butterfly Effect (2004)] I thought that it was a fantastic metaphor for life, and pretty enlightening. And I appreciated the opportunity to play a character that's blind to the trauma that takes place in his life. The violence that is in the movie I thought was a fantastic metaphor for how blind we are as a society, and as a people, to the things that actually do happen on a day-to-day basis, and how we kind of just block them out. And whether it be through our media or whatever, we go, "Oh, it's not happening in my world, so it's not happening.". In the movie, there's a great representation of the violence with the kids, and the pedophilia, and these kind of things that the guys could have taken the easy road, and kind of squeamishly cut around, but they weren't afraid of it.
  • Looks fade. Don't get too attached.
  • [on filming sex scenes] You sort of try to set some ground rules. I think it was Sir Laurence Olivier who said, "I apologize if I get aroused and I apologize if I do not get aroused." There's always that awkward state of "Is this okay? Is that okay?" In between it's just like "Let's act like nothing happened." Then you see how good an actor you really are.
  • [on identifying with the challenges in the life of Steve Jobs] The only way to relate to something like that is to have some version in your own life and I've had that. I didn't hesitate because he's an iconic figure as much as I did because I have friends who loved him and cared about him. It isn't always a flattering portrayal, and I wanted to make sure the way I portrayed him was the way people who loved and respected him saw him.
  • [in incorporating Steve Jobs' dietary regimen into his portrayal] Steve controlled a lot of his environment and over what he ate and what he put in his body. It was awful. I did a week where I just ate grapes, and I did a week where I just ate carrots, and then I backed into a slightly more vegetarian diet and ended up in the hospital. My blood sugar levels got really messed up and my pancreas levels were all out of whack, and I was in a lot of pain. Ultimately, I think I gained an understanding and an appreciation for the level of control in his life and his level of measured existence.
  • On Michelle Pfeiffer: Michelle is a force to be reckoned with. She brings true beauty and absolute gravity to every role she plays. She is a generous acting partner and a gift to any story that will have her be its voice.
  • You'd think that babies would come with instincts around fire and large falls, and they don't. I don't understand how prehistoric man lived.
