On his lady friends after becoming famous:
“I make a lot more friends, you know what i mean You become a lot more successful in terms of, like, talking to a girl. She”s all of a sudden interested in me. I know that, like, three years ago, she would”ve walked away after two sentence left my mouth. I remember I was sitting at this table at this thing, and I was talking to this girl. I was like, “God, I am so boring right now.” But she was like, “That”s so interesting!” I was like, “You know what Five years ago, this would not have been interesting.”

On his longest relationship:
“I think the longest relationship that I”ve been in was two years. I started doing this when I was 17, so I guess in my dating, adult life, that kind of covers it.”

On darkness vs light actors:
“Let me put it to you this way, right A lot of comedians are dark personalities, but they”re making people laugh. So, you know, it can flip the other way. People that are playing dark roles can actually be quite light. It doesn”t necessarily go hand in hand. I think sometimes maybe people that are lighter can access that darkness easier, whereas people that are dark don”t like to access it. It”s too much maybe part of them that they don”t want to reveal. I know that I”ve got darkness, but for the most part I try and smile as much as I can, you know I mean, David Cronenberg said it annoyed him that I used to come to work happy all the time.”
