On working in extremely hot temperatures:
“One day it was like 125 degrees, almost the hottest temperature ever recorded. I”m wearing a three-piece wool suit and leather gloves and getting behind a horse! I had a great stunt double, but at one point, he was like, “Do I even need to be here””
On dropping out of school for his career:
“My parents were definitely disappointed. I got my G.E.D., so they told me, “You now have the year it would have taken to finish high school to pursue acting. I will not be nearly as lenient with my kids.”
On not acting regrets:
“You could argue that “The Social Network” set the bar unreasonably high. It makes sense. But I”m not embarrassed by something like “Mirror Mirror.” I did it knowing it”s Snow White, and Prince Charming is inherently a saccharine, one-dimensional character. I did that movie to work with Tarsem Singh. As an artist, I got what I needed out of “Mirror Mirror.” The results only feed an actor”s ego. It shouldn”t add or diminish from whatever experience you had while shooting.”
