On gun control:
“I”m definitely for responsibility. I don”t think Obama is trying to take our guns, and I don”t think we have to fight the government to keep them. If you want to go out of a hunting trip and shoot cans with your son and a .22, that”s fine. Do I need an AK-47 with a 100-round magazine if I”m going on a hunting trip No. It is, to borrow a phrase from Confucius, like using a cannon to kill a mosquito. Having just made a Western, it”s fun to have a gun on your hip. You”re like, “This is an extension of my manhood.””

On the roles he wants:
“I love an adventure movie. A guy who is faced with a problem and he has to deal with it, and then there”s the adventure – the hero”s journey.”

On marriage:
“I like the idea of marriage. I like the idea that I Have a best friend. It”s just really comforting. I remember being single and trying to date, and it was just stressful and hard. It wasn”t fun. This is fun.”
