Personal Quotes (5)

Whether it's a blessing or a curse, I have always played someone like 10 years younger. When I was 23 or 24, I was playing 15 opposite Evan Rachel Wood in a movie called 'Pretty Persuasion.' She was 16 and nobody in a million years would have thought I was that much older than her.
I run a lot. I love running. I try to run at least half an hour a day.
That's an amazing gift as an actor - to be able to say I have an audience in so many countries in the world and that people know my work.
The more you work out, the more you get the energy to do it. And the more you get motivated to do it, especially when you start seeing results.
Working out makes me feel good. When I don't work out for a few days, I start feeling grumpy. When I'm at the gym, it wakes me up. My spirits are higher. I just feel happier and more motivated to do things.
