On keeping his private life under wraps:
“You know, I”ve learned the hard way how valuable privacy is. And I”ve learned that there are a lot of things in your life that really benefit from being private. And relationships are one of them. And I am going to do everything in my power to have this relationship be private.”
On the opinions of others and proving them wrong:
“People fill in the blanks really fast. They go, “Oh my God, he”s on a show and [plays] stupid, so he must be stupid.” I can”t control that, nor do I try to, nor do I want to. There”s some advantageous about having people underestimate your intellect, insomuch as a lot of things are revealed to you. They assume you don”t know what you”re talking about, then all of a sudden, you do. And the next thing you know, you have information you wouldn”t normally have.”
On being able to open up others in Hollywood:
“When you become well known, you start to have suspicions about people”s intentions that you”re becoming close with. Because I think there”s been an artificial value that”s been put on fame in the world- people don”t want to do something. They just want to be famous. And so I think you develop a natural suspicion of that. And, you know, I have a little bit of naïveté about trusting people – with the notion that if you share and if you give to people, they”ll respect your privacy in turn. Unfortunately, that”s not the case.”
