Life itself is worth living for. If you're not living the life that you want, you fight to achieve that life.
[on Jared] I would jump in front of a bullet for him and not think twice.
Some people will go to the opening of an envelope. They live their lives in the public eye and get off on it, they need it. They need that kind of adoration. If their name isn't in the tabloids once a week they feel like a failure. I choose to live a more private life, as does Jared [Padalecki]. We just don't believe in that sort of thing of 'it doesn't matter what they're saying so long as they're talking about you'.
On working with Jared: Jared and I are lucky to get along so well without having any effort to make. One day, the producers came to see us and told us they had never worked with actors who got along so well. It gives us the opportunity to make the relationship between Sam and Dean have credibility. I think the audience feels how much Jared and I like being together.
[on 9/11] 9/11 was unreal. I happened to be in Canada at the time and really didn't get a sense of how awful it really was until a few days later when it hit me like a ton of bricks...that the place I call home, the country that is invincible, my country of pride and freedom, the place we all feel safe, had been completely violated. I immediately jumped on a plane and flew to be with my family. It really frightened me. I pray to God that this new evil in our world will be abolished quickly.
I'm a mad Gummi fan. I always have Gummis in my trailer. But you can't eat too many because then you get Gummi tummy, and that's no good. I can't believe I'm saying this.
I love the smell of shampoo on a girl's hair. You can walk past someone and be like, 'Wow, you took a shower this morning, didn't you? Because you smell lovely!
[on Dean Winchester's reaction to his father's death on Supernatural (2005)] "A lot of issues, yeah. Dean's definitely having issues on camera. I'm just having issues because I don't get to hang out with him [Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who played John] anymore".
Being from Texas, I would say I favor a pair of jeans you can wear some boots with.
"When I was in middle school, some of my so-called friends found a catalog ad I did for Superman pajamas. They made as many copies as they could and pasted them up all over school." - on his most embarrassing moment.
