Personal Quote:

I got all the benefits of having an amazing Jewish mom without having any of the annoying things. I'm a total momma's boy. See more »

Trivia:

According to an article in The Chicago Sun-Times, when Braff won his Best First Feature Independent Spirit Award for Garden State (2004), his father jumped up from a back table in the room and yelled, "That's my kid!". See more »
