(On "In Her Shoes"): "It's not a chick flick. Guys should go see this movie because if anybody has a brother out there or is interested in their relationship with their family - or enjoys seeing Cameron Diaz in a bikini - this will appeal to you."
Once you become an actor, it's important to take care of yourself. I live in Santa Monica, where I can mountain bike, hike and go running on the beach. I like a nice sunset jog.
(On working with Penelope Cruz in "Woman On Top"): "I can't say enough nice things about her. She is amazing. You would think, looking at her, "Well, she can't be smart, funny, and a good actress," but she is all these things and more. She's great at imitations, dancing, partying. And she's a great person, too. She doesn't do it for show. One day when we were shooting in Pellerinho, a small town in Bahia, Brazil, we're hanging out on a street corner and there's this little boy who's dirty, dressed in rags, who is begging. She takes him by the hand and walks him to a sandwich shop and buys him two roast beef sandwiches. There's no one around, writing an article about her, this is just Penelope being herself."
In high school, I was a total jock/extracurricular nerd/just plain nerd. When I got to college, I realized that building a resume to get into a good school was no longer necessary. I had already gotten into one. I might as well follow my bliss.
I just give off this kind of feminine vibe which has... served me so well with women in my life.
(On Ashley Williams' character on "Good Morning, Miami): "Her's is a combination of wisdom and innocence."
(When People Magazine voted him one of the 50 Most Beautiful of 2003, they asked him what beauty products he uses): "The closest thing I use to beauty products is the grease on the pizza from John's Pizzeria."
