I'm not affected by violence the way some people are. I don't know why, but I enjoy that intensity.
That's one thing about Hollywood. People don't always want what's real. People always want a little more. So for me, it's a compromise. Here you go, that hyper-reality.
You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae.
I'm into being a dad, that's where my focus is most of the time. I'm an actor that's my job, but it's not my life. I have a lot of other interests too.
There's more to life than movies.
I hope I'm in a position to make stuff that I really want to make as opposed to stuff that I just have to make for money reasons, or to sustain a certain marquee value.
I remember when I first came around, the computer-generated stuff was pretty wicked. I was like, 'Wow!' but I feel like then for the longest time, we saw so much of it, after a while, you might as well just be watching an animated movie.
If you spend any time with a man, you'll realize that we're all still little boys.
I live by 'Go big or go home.' That's with everything. It's like either commit and go for it or don't do it at all. I apply that to everything. I apply that to relationships, I apply that to like sports, I apply that to everything. That's what I live by. That's how I like it.
I'm really close to all of my family.
My family's really close.
Surfing soothes me, it's always been a kind of Zen experience for me. The ocean is so magnificent, peaceful, and awesome. The rest of the world disappears for me when I'm on a wave.
My parents never looked at my acting as a career. They saw it as a way to help provide for the household.
I love doing the action stuff. It's soooo much fun!
My philosophy is: If you can't have fun, there's no sense in doing it.
