Personal Quotes (12)

I've always said that if I could do anything in the world, I would be a professional golfer.
I always wanted to be an actor, but my top three favorite actors of all time are Al Pacino, James Dean and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
I love being directed. I always find it helpful to have someone else's brain in the mix and not just have to rely on myself.
I always thought James Dean was this acting nerd like I am. He was just born with the talent to act and this vivid imagination. But the way he went about getting there was actually kind of annoying.
I like to believe that most human beings go about things with a point of view that they're just doing what they feel like they need to do at that time. Sometimes people make bad decisions, but it's not evil.
Comic-book movies are where my childhood fantasies meet my adulthood acting fantasies. I really, truly started acting by playing superheroes in my backyard.
I'm really bad at lying. I'm one of the worst liars I know. But if I can convince myself to believe something's happening, I can do that.
[Interview with Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, 2014] 'Everybody asks me what it's like to kiss Daniel Radcliffe! That kiss has been sensationalized in a really strange way. I'm an actor. I make-believe what is happening in the movie is actually happening in real life. So it wasn't me kissing Daniel Radcliffe, it was Lucien Carr finally kissing Allen Ginsberg, the person he's been wanting to kiss since they met. And that's a beautiful moment.'
I love to golf but was never good enough to go pro. Golf is my meditation.
I guess I just let life happen and stick to my guns. I'm actually a really grateful person. I'm really pleased with how my life has gone.
If a friend's in trouble, they can come to me, but I'm not that good at giving advice. They can come to me for honesty and truthfulness but I'm not a worker-througher. They go to my wife for that.
I'd like to be a dad. But right now, I'm a "fur dad". I have a dog that I treat like a human child.
