  • [on drugs] I still get curious about whatever new drug comes down the pike. There was a long period when I indulged in drugs, but I don't think I was ever addicted to any of them. I do think crack is addictive. I smoked it once, and it was a huge wake-up call ... When it came time to get some more, I knew very clearly that if I stayed there-and I wanted to-my life would change right then and there for the worse. I never touched crack again.
  • (2012, on working with Jim Belushi) We were working on a movie together [1995's Destiny Turns on the Radio], and his behavior was reprehensible, shitty and awful. I don't want to rehash what he did, but from that point on he was fair game. My girlfriend and I were visiting friends on Martha's Vineyard, and I saw in the local paper that Belushi was performing. We went to the show, and it was like $45 to see his shitty cover band, which is basically just a vanity project. I decided to hop on stage and dance with him. I got kicked off, and then I hopped on again. I thought it was hilarious that I got kicked out of the club. Jim Belushi is such a cock.
  • (2012) I love nudity. It's just such an easy, cheap laugh. And it's fun to do. I have no qualms whatsoever about taking my clothes off for no reason.
  • [2012, on Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011)] All I wanted was to get the fuck out of there as soon as possible. They encouraged me to improvise and come up with funnier lines if I wanted. But my entire strategy on those movies was to come in on time, shoot as much as I could as quickly as I could and then get the hell out of there and buy a summer home with the check.
  • [on Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011)] This last film was literally, without question, the most unpleasant experience I've ever had in my professional life. It's safe to say I won't be working with some of those people ever again. Not the actors. And the director [Mike Mitchell] was great. We got along. There were a couple of people, though...it was just a really awful, unpleasant experience.
