(On Mixed Martial Arts as depicted in `Never Back Down`) I actually get a little upset when people say that it`s not a sport. It`s the evolution of karate, kung fu, ju jitsu, judo, muay-thai - all these sports in their singular form, coming together. Most of these are Olympic sports.
Not in the least. I would never, ever bring that up.
(about his personal style) Comfort. If it`s comfortable and it looks decent, I`ll wear it. There`s no in-between for me. Either I want to be rocking in an Armani suit, or I want to be in jeans and a T-shirt. I wouldn`t want to be in khakis and a button-down. That`s just not me.
(favorite designer to wear on the red carpet) On the red carpet, Armani. I love Armani. I actually just went to his fashion show in Milan.
life as we know it.
(It`s an) actor`s dream. I think it`s a great thing. It`s awesome to be able to come and play a role in which the characters change every episode and yet at the same time you don`t feel you`re locked away for five years playing the same thing over and over again.
I got a role in Pearl Harbor within a week of getting to L.A. My head swelled. I spent all my money in two months and then didn`t work for another six. Luckily, Grandma hooked a brother up.
(on being pretty faced) It`s like, thanks for the good genes, Mom and Dad. I wanted to work.
I hope people remember me for the kind of person that I am, not because of what I do.
I don`t want a girl who`s high-maintenance and wants to go shopping... I like a girl who doesn`t wear make-up and is naturally beautiful.
Because I didn`t go to college, and because I spent my college time out in LA, it gives me a huge advantage over anyone who went to college... By the time they get out of school, I`ve already had four years of real world experience. I just feel like I have a major edge over them.
I hate the polo collar.
Once I got into modeling, I realized how much I really hated the industry... A lot of people that model tend to think they`re God`s gift, but I was like `Great, you can model, but what have you done to accomplish anything in your life?` I wanted a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
For two weeks, I had the entire neighborhood believing I was Tom Cruise`s son - until my step-sister spilled the beans on me.
I hate junk food. It depresses me.
"High school is high school, but it`s not until you get out of high school that you realize that it`s just a stepping stone in life. Nothing is easy about high school. I didn`t know where I fit. There are so many cliques of people who are popular and who are not. You get too caught up trying to figure out where you fit in the whole scheme of things, but really, it truly doesn`t matter. All that matters is that you have your friends who are your friends -- period." Interview with Tim Lammers, July 2004.
