~ If you can do what you do best and be happy, you're further along in life than most people.
~ I've always been spontaneous and outgoing... I've tried lots of things so I've got some good life experiences, which is great 'cause it means I've got lots of material to work with as an actor.
~ It's easy to fall into the trap of believing all the hype that's written about you... Who knows? In a couple of years, you might find me in the loony bin!
~ Everywhere I go, somebody is staring at me, I don't know if people are staring because they recognize me or because they think I'm a weirdo.
~ The best thing about acting is that I get to lose myself in another character and actually get paid for it... It's a great outlet. I'm not really sure who I am - it seems I change every day.
~ I get a friend to travel with me... I need somebody to bring me back to who I am. It's hard to be alone.~ My mother is a walking miracle.
~ I want to be a jerk like the rest of my friends, and have fun, and not care about the consequences, but I just can't now.
~ I got attention by being funny at school, pretending to be retarded, and jumping around with a deformed hand.
~ I realise that I do not change the course of history. I am an actor, I do a movie, that's the end of it. You have to realise we are just clowns for hire. After I had success it was great, at first, not to worry about money. It was on my mind when I was growing up.
~ The good thing about acting is that it always keeps you on your toes... It's not like any other job where you can go in and do the same thing as yesterday.
~ I've never been Romeo who meets a girl and falls for her immediately. It's been a much slower process for me each time I've gone into a relationship.
~ To believe in love, to be ready to give up anything for it, to be willing to risk your life for it, is the ultimate tragedy.
~ The first kiss I had was the most disgusting thing in my life. The girl injected about a pound of saliva into my mouth, and when I walked away I had to spit it all out.
~ I don't think I ever expected anything like an Oscar ever, to tell you the truth. That is not my motivation when I do these roles. I really am motivated by being able to work with great people and create a body of work that I can look back and be proud of.
~ Hoover was incredibly ambitious as a young man. He was highly motivated to succeed in Washington, primarily due to his mother's expectations of him.
~ I'm just starting to scratch the surface of what really makes me happy and it's taken me a while to admit that acting like a little child and being a jerk and a punk is fun. ~ My mom, Irmelin, taught me the value of life. Her own life was saved by my grandmother during World War II.
