Is a huge fan of the Chicago Bears, and can be seen wearing various items of Bears clothing in his films.
[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 cliché 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 is reputation for being a free spirit] I say whatever I think and whatever is on my mind, and I just hope that it comes out good. I just try to have a lot of fun.
Modelling is the best because you have to look hot, which comes easy to me, you know. I'm blessed with that.
[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.
