Personal Quote:

Some people get into this business and they're so afraid to lose anything. They try to protect their position like clinging to a beachhead. These actors end up making really safe choices. I never wanted to go that route. If I go down, I'm going down swinging. I know that's the way Heath Ledger feels and Ben Affleck feels the same way, too. We want to take the big swings. See more »

Trivia:

His parents divorced when he was two and he spent part of his childhood in a commune in Boston with his mother. See more »
