[on Penelope Cruz] She's hilarious. She's not only very smart and talented, she has a ridiculously absurdest and sophisticated sense of humor. We were constantly laughing and enjoying ourselves on set.
James Dean taught me not to speed, River Phoenix taught me not to DO speed, and Marlon Brando taught me to slow down on the cheeseburgers.
[About working on the film The Girl Next Door (2004).] When I got a lap dance, because I was 17, they had to put a massive pillow between me and the girl when she was grinding me. It was weird, yet pleasurable.
"People would be so intimidated especially when I left the tattoo on and went out to a party. You'd get weird looks from everyone. Big, big macho dudes would be like, 'Oh, excuse me. Excuse me.' I was like, 'Yeah!' I mean, it was very strange for me to have people react to me like that. It's unheard of for me and to have girls going, 'You're crazy.' And looking at you from across the party like, 'You're a crazy one.'" In reference to his shaved head for Lords of Dogtown (2005).
"I learned how to skate vert in pools and stuff. Now I can get on a board and skate a pool. We did three months of skating and surfing. It was surfing in the morning and skating in the afternoon. Tony Alva was our coach. He's not the easiest coach to work with. He's not like a coach. He tells you how to do it, and is like, 'Just do it. Just f-ing do it, dude!'" In reference to his skateboard training for Lords of Dogtown (2005).
"I don't really want to do a teen comedy, you know? I mean, I just didn't want to be in a bad movie, that's all." In reference to his hesitance in deciding whether or not to play his character Matthew Kidman in The Girl Next Door (2004).
I think I've always been half out of my shell and half in. Sometimes I can be extremely wild and sometimes I can be extremely shy. It just depends on the day.
