On his former co-star, Lindsay:
“She”s had a rough go of it. I”m sure the trials and tribulations that she”s been through have taught her plenty. Our business loves comeback stories. From Drew Barrymore to Robert Downey Jr., there”s a long list of people have faced their troubles, wildly overcome them, and succeeded. If anyone can do that, it”s Lindsay.”
On his big action films:
“I get a lot of my kicks doing these [action] films. I do stuff for my job that I did playing make-believe as a boy in my backyard. But I”m not a dummy – if I sense something could permanently injure me, I step away and let the professionals do it.”
On his mom”s dating advice:
“My mom always told me to take my elbows off the table, so that if I ever had dinner with a queen, I would know how to eat properly. But she also taught me basic things about being a gentleman, like opening car doors. Especially in Los Angeles, I think people lose those small gestures that harken back to a different time but are still mutually appreciated by men and women. Those little things are just nice.”
