Brothers don't necessarily have to say anything to each other - they can sit in a room and be together and just be completely comfortable with each other. (google.com)
Being dubbed as a hunk sort of annoys me. It gives me a yucky feeling. (google.com)
"I feel like a whole era in my life is over. My grandma died last week. I have no more grandparents. I feel that coming ahead in my life is more stripping away, for sure. I feel very sad that Oma is gone.”
“Just last night I was thinking to myself how little of my life has been lived normally and not spent on some far-off movie location. I want to get married and have children. In saying that, I realise I am contradicting everything I’ve said before. I absolutely believe in marriage,”
“What I definitely feel a need for is to make my life about more than just my career,”
“Ah, how do you answer something like that? So, I am being asked to look in the future I suppose quickly. No, I don`t have any plan."
Love at first sight? I absolutely believe in it! You`ve got to keep the faith. Who doesn`t like the idea that you could see someone tomorrow and she could be the love of your life? It`s very romantic.
Brothers don`t necessarily have to say anything to each other-they can sit in a room and be together and just be completely comfortable with each other.
When I was young, I used to have this thing where I wanted to see everything. I used to think, `How can I die without seeing every inch of this world?`
I cheated a lot, because I just couldn`t sit and do homework. I usually sat next to someone extremely smart.
On Martin Scorsese: "Martin has brought so much to the art form of film, and he is not the type of person who would be upset by not receiving an Oscar, although it is a practical joke that he has not won an Academy Award after all these years. Whatever opinions critics will have of The Aviator (2004), I really think that this is a great piece of art: once again, he has made a great classic film."
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.
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.
My God, no! I hate this whole hunk thing! I feel when I see myself in that, and these other cute faces, that I`m just part of this meat factory, like, `Wow! Here`s the hunk of the month! This month we`re shoving Leonardo DiCaprio down your throat! Isn`t he cute. Let`s put him on the cover and we`ll sell so many more magazines...` That`s definitely not what I want to be, and I`ve tried real hard to get away from that whole situation.
I prefer ordinary girls - you know, college students, waitresses, that sort of thing. Most of the girls I go out with are just good friends. Just because I go out to the cinema with a girl, it doesn`t mean we are dating.
Being dubbed as a hunk sort of annoys me. It gives me a yucky feeling.
I got attention by being funny at school, pretending to be retarded, and jumping around with a deformed hand.
My career should adapt to me. Fame is like a VIP pass wherever you want to go.
On turning 30: "I kind of feel like the same person except more time has gone by. I hate to say that I feel like an adult now. I have to admit I wish I was still 18. After all, even through the time while I was representing that wild kid, I really wasn`t. I was just living my life. I was just not making movies at the time."
I am friends with Demi. Don`t believe anything you read.
On rumors: I`ve heard some pretty bad rumors...that I`m gay. If I want to go to a party with a few male friends, it doesn`t mean that I`m gay. I don`t see why I can`t have friends of both sexes without rumors being spread about me. It`s crazy.
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.
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.
I`m just starting to scratch the surface of what makes me happy, and it has taken me a while to admit that acting like a child and a jerk is fun.
The last thing I want to turn into is a fat Hollywood jerk. I was brought up without much money and I was happy. I don`t think that I will strive for money or success and end up greedy or big-headed. That only leads to unhappiness. I can still be down-to-earth and do this job as long as I enjoy it.
I hate being selected as `Babe of the Month` and being called `hunk`.
My mother is a walking miracle.
I think people read the tabloids because they want to see you eating a burger, or out of your makeup or doing something stupid because they just want to see that you`re like everyone else. And that`s OK. I don`t want to catch myself anymore saying that my life is hard, because the good far outweighs the bad in my life. And it`s easier to focus on those things, on the things that are important.
If you hear of any incident about me - a fight, a change of clothes, a little extra gel in the hair, don`t believe it till you talk to me.
People want you to be a crazy out-of-control teen brat. They want you to be miserable, just like them. They don`t want heroes. What they want is to see you fall.
I like to be able to play a character and act out a lot of things which I can`t or don`t do in my normal everyday life.
My mom and I lived at Hollywood and Western, a drug-dealer and prostitute corner. It was pretty terrifying. I got beat up a lot. I saw people have sex in the alleys. I remember I was 5 years old, and this guy with a trench coat, needles and crack cornered me. Early on, seeing the devastation on my block, seeing heroin addicts, made me think twice about ever getting involved in drugs. It`s evil. Once you take that step and experiment, drugs can take over your life. You are not yourself anymore. That`s something I never wanted. I didn`t have a lot of friends growing up. It was kind of just me and my parents. But because of them, the neighborhood did not have a bad effect on me. My dad introduced me to artists, and every few months we`d go to some hippie doo-dah parade as Mudmen in our underwear, carrying sticks and covered in mud. My mother did everything to get me into the best schools she could find.
Don`t think for a moment that I`m really like any of the characters I`ve played. I`m not. That`s why it`s called `acting`.
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.
I`m not the kind of person who tries to be cool or trendy, I`m definitely an individual.
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.
Portraying emotionally ill characters gives me the chance to really act.
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 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.
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 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.
It was pretty disheartening to be objectified like that. I wanted to stop acting for a little bit. But it changed my life in a lot of ways, but at the same time, I can`t say that it didn`t give me opportunities. It made me, for the first time, in control of my career. - On Titanic (1997)
With Romeo and Juliet, you`re talking about two people who meet one night, and get married the same night. I believe in love at first sight-but it hasn`t happened to me yet.
I couldn`t deal with playing a character who rides motorcycles and has a leather jacket and is a tough kid, y`know?
A consensus has emerged in our scientific community that global warming is no longer merely a theory but a reality, a crisis with truly global implications for planet Earth and all of us who share it. - Told to thousands at the New Jersey concert for Live Earth
I was always the kid in school who tried to get attention, not necessarily the class clown, but I`d do little unexpected performances.
I really don`t know what I`m doing... I don`t. It`s terrible. I go in there and I learn how to be like the character and do the best I can, and that`s all I really do.
I just want to keep doing what I`m doing and hopefully people will watch my movies.
I don`t know if I`m ever getting married. I`m probably not going to get married unless I live with somebody for 10 or 20 years. But these people took a chance and they did it. We don`t have the guts that Romeo did.
I`ve managed to keep a clear head and remain sane in this business because I remain a kid off-camera.
